But if you’ve actually found something unusual in your food, you’ll know it’s no laughing matter. Worse still, some of the food you’re eating could be carrying unseen contaminants that you’ll know nothing about… until you get sick from eating them.

It can happen at any point in the food supply chain if food safety procedures aren’t followed correctly.
