Woman Receives £2,200 Defective Product Compensation
A woman has made a successful defective product compensation claim after she lost a double filling when biting into a hard lump embedded in an oven chip.
Susan Stapylton, from Leeds, bit down on what turned out to be a clump of batter which caused her double wisdom tooth filling to fall out. The manufacturer of the Aunt Bessies’ oven chips initially offered the 60-year-old a £5 voucher to spend on more chips. Mrs Stapylton commented:
“I couldn’t have a drink, and breathing and coughing, it was a nightmare. I thought at the time, ‘I have seven grandchildren that are young, what if it had been one of them and they’d swallowed it and it got stuck in their throat?’”
Defective Product Compensation – Claimant Receives Apology From Heinz
Mrs Stapylton had temporary fillings placed in her tooth as she was having breathing difficulties at the time of the accident and could not undergo the full corrective procedure.
Heinz, who own Aunt Bessies, commented on the incident:
“Great care and attention is given to every aspect of preparing and making our chips, from sorting and screening of ingredients to the stringent precautions and exacting standards adhered to during manufacture.
“This was an isolated complaint and the safety and quality of our products remains paramount importance to us.”
