my sister bought "swift" brand corned beef. my niece found a broken needle when she was about to eat it. good thing she looked at her spoon. otherwise, she could have swallowed it. what's scary is this needle might be contaminated. have you ever experienced this?

Wow that was indeed scary you should have complained that to your local stores so that everyone can be warned about it. I just hope that this is a very isolated case of negligence as I found that the brand you just mentioned is a well known brand of their own kind of product. I really think that we have to be vigilant of what we buy and eat for that matter. Even the well-known brands still has to be checked upon because this kind of cases can really happen.

Too bad, you could have taken pictures of it showing that the needle is in the food. Anyway it is really hard to proved unless you have discovered that when opening the can yourself. They may claim that the needle that you found might accidentally placed in there while you were cooking the food.

I think you must complain it to their company, maybe you can send them an email about the content of their product. It's very frustrating if you found out a needle inside the can. Did you try send them an email? i think you can reached them through online. Swift has a good reputation but i think this post might lowered their reputation.

Hi, i never experienced such,and should that happened to me or if I were in your sister's shoe, I will really find ways to take some shots to it or shall we say have some video and I will take some steps to be able to reach the swift co. to do the explaining to me otherwise I will take legal action. It was no joke having needles ha. I have been trying to figure out, how in the world of Swift co. could a corned beef meet section have needles, where they are not even fabric co.? and I presumed that it was really place there by purpose, maybe not the swift's owner but one of those workers to sabotage.(sorry to do the presumptions) Oh, Oh, no matter what, I will try not to buy swift product anymore. Thanks for the info.
