Ideally you'd need to catch polio or something similar from the caterpillar...






To be honest if it's a big brand supermarket they could keep this going through the courts for years. Pick on a corner shop...

Aha, smart question Joey. Now that you have obtained a small animal, in your case a caterpillar, you can start a tiny circus. Take a small piece of string and tie it to a match. Now you've got a small whip. If you're really good with crafting things, i can also suggest you make a small chair. You are now ready to be a tamer of small animals. Teach it to sit up, crawl through a hoop and possibly even ride a tiny bicycle, why not?! This will - off course - need more crafting skills. Feed it your tesco wrap when it makes progress, as a reward. Since you're already in the audiovisual business, get a mate from your crew to film it. Create a new YouTube channel called 'Joey and his magnificent Caterpillar Circus'. In time, you will grow to be very successful, gets loads of hits and advertisers will pay you to put messages in your video uploads. If you remain patient enough, BBC will notice your caterpillars skills and a documentary will be made, with magnificent stories about your patience and heroism told by David Attenborough. Congratulations, at this point you will obtain high amounts of money, and profit from your new celebrity status for the rest of your life.

Go to the store with the Caterpillar, the sandwich & the photos, be very loud at the customer service desk, try & make as many people in the store around you aware of what you have & what you're complaining about (refer to it as a live infestation - serious foreign body), demand to speak to the manager, say you work in Quality Assurance in the food industry & have taken legal advice & have been told you have a strong case in a small claims court, you're considering contacting trading standards & the British Retail Consorteum with your findings to ensure they persue a full product recall, but you're a reasonable person & aslong as they can offer you a generous compensation package, then you won't feel the need to persue further action.

Don't accept their 1st offer, a full product recall will cost them at least £50,000 & seriously unwanted media attention.

Tell them you're fully aware of this cost, so for them to try & fob you off with a joke amount would only serve to force you to persue the aforementioned action.

Once you're happy with any offer they're putting on the table, say you want it in writing & correspond that way from then on, I suggest again not acepting subsequent offers & once you have correspondance with them, contact one of those "no win, no fee" lawyers4u type things you see on T.V to see if you do actually have a case...

I've seen it day in, day out for the last 2 years, it works 100%.

You wouldn't have a leg to stand on in court. There is nothing to say you didn't put it there. What's to stop me from getting a Tescos sandwich and putting a spider on it then taking a photo? Plus there is no reason for a recall, nothing wrong with the product.

Sorry to piss on your fire but have fun spending your £5.00 goodwill voucher.

Not true in the slightest, they will try & fob you off, yes.

I've worked in QA for a company producing Cereals for Tesco amongst many other large Supermarket Chains for the last 2 years, dealing with customer complaints.

So i've seen the full process in action...

If you play your cards right & threaten to report them to the appropriate channels, they will go out of their way to avoid any potential media attention & their subsequent suppliers/manufacturers will front some of the cost of any compensation if Tesco deem them responsible, as the company I worked for had to do in the past.
