Fiona Van Dam, a mother-of-six from Perth, bought Coles frankfurters before making them into sandwiches the following day. Van Dam ate them along with her husband and several of their children. They saw maggots crawling on sandwich two-year-old was about to eat
This is the revolting moment a mother-of-six discovered maggots crawling all over Coles frankfurters that she had just fed to her children.
Fiona Van Dam, from Perth, said she bought the pre-packed hotdogs from the Pinjarra store on Friday before making them into sandwiches on Saturday.
She fed the franks to several of her older children and her husband before noticing there were maggots on the sandwich she was about to feed her two-year-old.
Stomach-churning video shows dozens of the creatures crawling over the outer skin of the hotdog, which she appears to have flattened out to get into the sandwich.
While at first there does not seem to be anything wrong with the hotdog, Mrs Van Dam then moves part of the frank to reveal what is underneath.
Dozens of the little creatures can be seen crawling around on the Coles frankfurters skin as it sits on a chopping board. Mrs Van Dam wrote: ‘If you have a weak stomach I strongly suggest you don’t watch this video.
‘I bought pre-packed cocktail franks from Pinjarra Coles yesterday and this is what they are like. All they could offer as compensation was a $6 dollar refund.
‘Several of our children, my husband and I ate them before we found this one which we had given our two-year-old!’
A Coles spokeswoman said: ‘We take the quality of the products we sell seriously. ‘Our national quality team has advised the contamination appears to be consistent with common housefly larvae. This has most likely occurred after the frankfurt was cooked at home, as larvae could not survive the heat of the cooking process.
‘We encourage customers to return any item that they are not satisfied with to their nearest store for a full refund or replacement.’
