String found in elegi

By Charlina Tone

String found in elegi Fale Kuresa, of Vaitele Fou, has vowed never to eat elegi again after he allegedly discovered a string like object in a can he bought on Wednesday night. Mr Kuresa said he purchased two cans of Sea Boat Sardines from a nearby store for dinner.

But he was “disgusted” when he opened one of the cans and found the foreign object. “I was emptying out the contents onto a plate when I noticed the piece of string,” he said.

“I then returned the cans to the shopkeeper and was told she would

return them to the local wholesale company that distributes them.”
The Sea Boat brand of elegi is packed for Ah Liki Wholesale.

A manager from the company, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said there have been no complaints about the elegi.
“I have not received any complaints so I am not familiar with this case,” the Manager said.

He said Ah Liki Wholesale takes necessary actions in handling such complaints.
The mishap is normally reported to the supplier in China where they locate where the object originated from.

“This is a very difficult case because no one was there when the can was opened and it has been handled by several people,” he said.
“It could have happened during production but I would prefer not to comment because I am not familiar with this case.

“I can understand the frustration of the customer and we can arrange replacements.”
Mr Kuresa wants to warn people to always make sure they check canned food before aaconsuming them.
