AN ASDA customer was left horrified after opening a tin of beans and finding what she claims “looked like a mouse had died” inside.
Sally Jones said she felt sick after opening the tin of Asda’s own brand baked beans from her local store in Bexleyheath, South East London on Saturday.
The 29-year-old accounts manager claims she bought the beans last month and was making lunch for her son Reign when she made the disgusting discovery.
Images show the opened tin filled with brown sludge and mould with barely an identifiable bean in sight.
The mum-of-three also took a photograph showing the base of the tin which gives an expiry date of January 2023.
Sally said: “I bought the beans just before Christmas, but when I opened them on Saturday I could tell something was wrong immediately.

“As soon as I opened it the smell was like something from beyond the grave.
“It was horrific. Like a mouse had died in that tin.
Sharing the images on Facebook, Sally said: “I’m gonna be sick 10,000,000 times. I just opened a tin of beans to try Reign on for lunch and this was inside.
“It’s in date, only purchased recently. What the actual hell.
“My stomach right now, what is that. Not feeding my kids things from a tin or buying from the Asda brand ever again.”
She said she had contacted the supermarket on the phone and via email but had not yet heard back with Asda saying the customer had not made an official complaint.
Dozens of disgusted viewers left comments on the post after being equally as horrified.
Stevie Ferdinando said: “I would never shop in Asda again. I hate the shop anyway, it’s getting worse. Email them with this picture.”
Jennifer Bensaidane simply said: “F***. I find it hard to look at the photos and it’s very rare I swear but that is disgusting.”
Another user, Samantha Greenwood, said: “It looks like a gremlin about to hatch. Why do these things always happen to you?”
Dee Reynolds said: “Where is the vomit reaction? It looks like a scene from a scary sci-fi.”
“I spoke to Asda both via email and on the phone, but they weren’t helpful at all.”
A spokesperson for Asda said: “We set ourselves very high standards and on the rare occasion a tin is damaged it can lead to a build-up of mould.
“We have not received any complaints about our beans so would recommend any customer that is unhappy with a product to bring it back to store or speak to our customer service team so we can look into what has happened.”
