Man gags on mystery ‘slab of hair’ after biting into Morrisons breakfast bap – and is offered a crate of beer to say sorry

  • Alex Savvides said he bit into the breakfast bap and got a ‘mouthful of hair’
  • He spotted a single hair on his baked beans but removed it and carried on
  • The 25-year-old was horrified to discover ‘a slab of hair’ inside the bap 
  • He threw up and was offered a free lunch and a crate of beer of his choice
  • Mr Savvides told MailOnline he then had to take two days off work after feeling ill
  • He described the hair as looking like ‘someone’s emptied the U-bend of a drain’
  • Morrisons apologised and said they were investigating the sample

An IT consultant had to take two days off work after falling ill when he bit into a Morrisons breakfast bap and found himself chewing on a mouthful of matted hair.

Alex Savvides, 25, had spent the morning clay pigeon shooting in Boreham Wood with four friends and they stopped at the large supermarket branch on Stirling Way for a late breakfast.

There was a problem with the food and it took 40 minutes to arrive. When his Builders Big Breakfast Butty finally came, he saw a single strand of hair on one of his baked beans.

‘I noticed it but I was hungry and I’d already been waiting for ages,’ he told MailOnline. ‘I thought to myself, I’m not really fussed. So I cut that bit out and carried on.

‘I had one more bite and all this stuff came into my mouth. I was pulling it out of my teeth, pulling out all this black hair.

‘My friends were like, what’s wrong with you? None of us believed it could actually be proper hair.’

Between them, the four friends decided he should place it on a white tissue for further examination. ‘We all thought it was a mouse that had been caught up in the packaging,’ Mr Savvides, from St Alban’s, said.

‘At that point, something made me open my bun. I saw a whole slab of hair just lying there, not even mixed in or cooked with the beans, just lying there as if someone had just put it in the middle.

‘I went straight to the toilet and threw up, then I came back. The staff took it quickly away and they offered for me to come back next Sunday for a free lunch.’

In an effort to placate their customer, the supermarket manager then went a step further.

‘He took me down to the beer aisle and told me to choose any crate I wanted,’ Mr Savvides said. ‘I said, what’s that for? To wash it down? It was hilarious.

‘But I chose a crate of Punk IPA. The truth is, if someone told me to swallow some hair for a crate of beer, I’d probably have done it.

‘But I didn’t appreciate it happening like this. It wasn’t OK to suddenly get this in my food without expecting it.

‘A crate of beer would actually have been reasonable payment for the one hair on the baked bean. That’s fine for one hair on a baked bean.

‘But for the whole hairball thing, I don’t really know if that’s OK.’

The four friends left the store and went to Mr Savvides’ car, but he was throwing up repeatedly and was unable to drive.

‘One of friends drove us home,’ he recalled. ‘At home I threw up couple of times, and I thought to myself, I’m not having this.

‘I wrote a complaint and I printed it out and went back to see the café manager. They had the hair in a freezer bag. I thought to myself, that was in my mouth mate. It was disgusting.’

By this time, the Morrisons staff had formulated a theory on the origin of the hair.

‘They said it’s got to have been in the mushrooms,’ Mr Savvides said. ‘I replied, what do you mean it’s got to have been the mushrooms? 

‘It wasn’t even in with the mushrooms. It was in with the baked beans. How could they even have that as an assumption?

‘They said it must have been the manure with the mushrooms. I said mate, if you look at it, it looks like someone’s emptied the U-bend of a drain. There’s nothing manure-like about it. It looks more like a mouse that has been fried.’

He added: ‘I feel ill just thinking about it. My theory is they have a plate in the kitchen where they put all the sh** they find all week, and every Sunday when they’re fed up at working, they put it in someone’s food.

‘But they were obsessed with the mushroom theory. It’s like the 9/11 conspiracy all over again.’

Mr Savvides took two days off work with a stomach bug and has only just recovered from his ordeal.

A Morrisons spokesman said: ‘We have apologised to the customer and the sample is currently being sent back to us so that we can investigate further.’

‘I’ve thrown up eight times at home,’ he said. ‘My tonsils are a bit swollen, I don’t know why. But I can’t have any more time off work.

‘I wasn’t going to ring the doctors and go and get tested for food poisoning because I was at home feeling like sh** and I didn’t feel up to it. I thought I’d just get over it.’

He added: ‘I might have kept throwing up partly because I kept thinking about it.’
