A woman has been left disgusted after allegedly finding a dead rat inside her bag of crisps.
When Esther De La Rosa from Tampico, Tamaulipas, Mexico went to buy a packet of salted crisps from her local shop, she had no idea what was hiding inside.
After opening the bag of Barcel Chips in her car, she was shocked to discover a dead rat amongst the crips and says she has been left traumatised.
Esther later took to Facebook to share her horrific ordeal. In the post, she shows several bags of crisps on a store shelf, as well as her own bag with a rodent visibly hanging out the packet.
“I got a rat in the potato chips!,” she captioned the post. “
It’s incredible this happened, I never imagined it.
“These were always my favourite.
“Don’t buy these chips ever again, take care of your children.”
Esther also shared the allegedly contaminated crisps on her Twitter account.
Chips Barcel, the company which makes the crisps promptly replied with a response that asked Esther to send them more detail in a private message.
Many users have flocked to the comments’ sections to share their disgust.
