Woman horrified after she ‘finds two-inch nail’ inside Müller Corner yoghurt

A woman was left horrified when she claims she uncovered a nail hidden inside a yogurt she had been merrily snacking on.

Claire Hough, of Brough in East Yorkshire, said she found the metal object hidden inside a toffee hoops Müller Corner yogurt that she had been enjoying for breakfast earlier in the week.

The 45-year-old said she was left “flabbergasted” after claiming she discovered the two-inch metal spike hidden underneath the low-fat food.

Opening up about her ordeal, Ms Hough alleges she could have choked on the black metal nail if she hadn’t been paying attention as she spooned the desert into her mouth.

And she feared what consequences could have played out had someone less cautious bought the particular tub of yoghurt.

Speaking to HullLive, Ms Hough said: “It was one of those Müller Corner ones, it was a toffee hoop one.

“I’d eaten quite a lot of it already when I saw it. I was just shocked and surprised.”

Discussing her concerns, she continued: “I could have swallowed it. A child could have eaten it and swallowed it because children eat those sorts of yoghurts.”

Ms Hough said she bought the yoghurt after it was on offer at her local branch of Morrison’s and she had been eating through it ahead of dashing to work.

She said: “It was a few days ago on Monday or Tuesday, I was due at work so it was just a quick breakfast before.”

“I was just flabbergasted. Astonished.”

Müller has claimed it takes the upmost care when it comes to preparing its foods.

A spokesman for the company said: “The products we make are subject to extensive checks and X-ray scans to ensure they meet the highest standards of product quality, and we would encourage the individual to contact our customer service team so that we can carry out a full investigation.

“It is important to stress that in our production facility, yogurt passes through a filter, and the whole process takes place within an entirely sealed and automated filling line.

"The completed product is then scanned by an X-ray machine.”
