Horrified girl bites into mouldy Morrisons éclair with cream like ‘blue cheese’

A mum was left horrified after finding a Morrisons éclair she bought for her daughter was riddled with mould just one day past its use by date.

Kelly Carr bought a chocolate éclair from Morrisons in Ampthill Road, Bedford, for her daughter Lana-Reid last Wednesday (July 27) – only to find it full of mould that looked like "blue cheese", reports Bedfordshire Live.

The 42-year-old mum was left disgusted when her daughter took one bite into the sweet treat and was forced to throw up in her kitchen sink almost immediately.

The éclair looked fine from the outside, but the inside was full of what Kelly described as blue cheese.

Kelly said: "They did go out of date yesterday, but they were in the fridge. That looks like that has been rotting on a shelf for a week.

"She just took a bite into it and she just vomited in the kitchen sink because she said 'Mummy they're blue'. I thought that's a joke right? Then I looked at it and they are both completely blue.

"Honestly I am just mortified that she has had to bite into something that I bought as a treat. For her to be sick in the kitchen sink, honestly I am utterly disgusted right now. Fuming, I am so angry."

Kelly is now concerned that others could buy products with mould and believes the éclairs were not properly refrigerated before she bought them.

She said: "I would dread to think how many other people have bought mouldy items like the one I bought and someone has bitten into it. I cannot be the only person to have been through this."

Kelly reported the incident to Morrisons and a spokeswoman has since emphasised how food quality is "extremely important" to the supermarket and the issue is currently being investigated by the supplier.

They said: "The quality of the food that we sell is extremely important to us. Though this product was not in date when it was consumed, we are still investigating this issue with our supplier so that we can return to Ms Carr."
