"I only noticed the plastic by chance," he said, "as it was the first nugget to come out of the packet."

He was shocked at first, and "angry that if I hadn't noticed it my son could have eaten it as I was making his tea."

Tatterton informed Tesco about the plastic, but says to begin with "they weren't very helpful."

"I had to tell them that we needed to fill in the RP125 (complaint) form."

A Tesco spokesperson said: “We appreciate the concern this would have caused Mr Tatterton, and have apologised to him, as well as providing him with a refund.

"We have extensive quality checks and procedures in place throughout our manufacturing process for all our products and so we are investigating what happened on this occasion.”

"Overall," Tatterton says, "I'm satisfied with their response."

But will he be buying more nuggets in the future?

"No," he says, "I will never buy Tesco's chicken nuggets again, and it's put me off buying Tesco's own brand of frozen food."
