SINGAPORE: A woman, concerned after finding a piece of wire in the prawn roll she bought, took to social media. She also posted photos of her unfortunate discovery, which could have caused injuries to the person eating the prawn roll.

Brought 2 pack of Lebao Prawn Roll at Sheng Siong Supermarket. Fried 1 pack, cut into small pieces for kids to eat and found one of the prawn roll with staples pin inside,” posted a Facebook user who goes by Eileen Lpy on the popular COMPLAINT SINGAPORE page on Sunday (Apr 17).

She added that she had already emailed the Singapore Food Agency (SFA).

Ms Eileen posted a number of photos along with her post, one of which showed a piece of prawn roll cut in half, with a wire sticking out of it.

Other photos showed the wire on its own, the packaging label for the prawn rolls, and a close-up shot from the packaging that showed it had been manufactured in Singapore.
