Do you think this store needs to issue an apology to this Muslim customer because he mistakenly bit into something that contained pork? Or do you think that this was an honest mistake? Leave your thoughts in the comment section below!

DEVOUT Muslim Shamrez Razaq was horrified after biting into a savoury supermarket snack he thought was cheese and onion but turned out to be pork.

The 20-year-old from Girlington said he had to snatch another roll from the sameMorrisons‘ pack from his eight-year-old brother’s mouth.

Disgusted Mr Razaq, who had bought the pastry rolls from Morrisons’ Ingleby Road store on Monday for his family’s tea, said it made him feel sick.

They had been clearly labelled as cheese and onion and suitable for vegetarians. Eating pork is forbidden for practising Muslims.

Mr Razaq said: “For centuries my ancestors have not eaten pork. I can’t believe this has happened. I have never, never touched anything like that. It was a bad mistake of Morrisons’ especially to make in the Girlington area which has such a huge Muslim population. It’s unforgivable.

“He apologised and gave me a refund, a few more pounds than I’d paid which felt like a pay off. I was really disappointed at the lack of customer service. It didn’t seem to sink in with them the enormity of what their mistake meant to us. I wasn’t bothered about getting money back.”
