Live maggots in fried chicken among complaints to Food Safety Authority

Complaints to the Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) increased by a fifth last year.

There were over four thousand registered, with almost a third relating to unfit food, while 28 per cent were related to hygiene standards.

Some items reported to the FSAI were a possibly bloody plaster in a curry, a false nail in a garlic cheese chip, live maggots in fried chicken, and part of a disposable glove in a rocky road biscuit.

The number of complaints has increased consistently over the last 10 years.
