Snack gone wrong

The woman had ordered a Chicken Wrap skewer snack from the Old Chang Kee outlet at Lavender MRT station.

She was almost done with her snack and was down to the last chicken ball on the skewer when she noticed something amiss.

Upon further inspection, she pulled out a crumpled and transparent piece of plastic from the chicken ball.

When flattened, the piece of plastic was larger than her thumbnail.

Responding to a comment on her post, the woman said that she suspected the plastic to be cling wrap.

In a separate response, she said that while she has not flagged the incident to the relevant authorities, she hoped that her post will promote awareness about the issue.

At the time of the incident, the woman was accompanied by her son.

She said that she was glad that her son did not consume the chicken ball.

She added that such incidents could pose a potential health risk to younger children, who are less discerning.

In response to queries from Mothership, Old Chang Kee said that they are aware of the incident and have alerted the manufacturer.

Chicken Wraps from the same batch as the one in the incident have been recalled from Old Chang Kee outlets.

Old Chang Kee added that they are in communication with the customer affected.
