LONDON - A woman in Britain has claimed that a frog fell out of a bottle of wine she had bought from supermarket giant Asda.
Isolde Beesley, from Liecestershire, complained that the creature fell out as she poured a glass of Moscatel de Valencia, a white Spanish dessert wine, at a family celebration.he said she suffered stomach pains after drinking some of the wine, having initially failed to see the thumb nail-sized amphibian floating at the bottom of the bottle.
She said that she had since passed the bottle on to her local trading standards office and complained to the company prompting it to temporarily take the wine off the shelves.
She has also hired a solicitor and is attempting to bring legal action against the company.
A spokeswoman for Asda said investigations had found no problems with the bottling process or pests present at the factory.
“We are at a total loss as to how this could have happened,” the Telegraph quoted a spokeswoman as saying.
“It’s nigh on impossible for any object to find its way into a bottle of wine when it is being produced.
“It simply can’t happen. So somewhere along the line between it being bottled in Spain, opened and being drunk, our unwanted guest has found its way into her glass,” she added. (ANI)
