Cadbury is to investigate claims a customer discovered a dead moth in her chocolate bar.


Housewife Jane Barker was horrified to find the moth embedded in the Cadbury's Turkish Delight bar, which she had asked her daughter to buy for her diabetic husband, Neil.

Mrs Barker, 38, opened the bar to have a bite before giving it to her husband, and it was then she discovered the insect.

'I opened it and when I had it in my hand I spotted where it says Cadbury, written across it in the chocolate itself, what looked like a dead moth,' she said.

'I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me at first but you could see wings. It was like it was engraved within the chocolate. It was horrible and make me feel ill.


'I'm just glad I saw it and I didn't eat it,' said Jane.

Her brother Darren Hanslip, 30, has contacted chocolate giant Cadbury to complain and the company has promised to investigate.


Mrs Barker, from Blackburn, Lancs, said: 'I was going to leave it but Darren rang them up and said 'a child could have eaten that'.

'Cadbury said to send it in and that they would send it away to get it looked at.'


'My husband has heart problems and he's diabetic. He needed his sugar, but he didn't get it. I'm just glad he didn't eat it.'

A Cadbury spokesman said the company was 'very concerned' and would investigate the problem once Mrs Barker had sent the offending piece of chocolate to its Bourneville headquarters.


Cadbury spokesman Tony Bilsborough said: 'It is standard procedure to ask the buyer to send it back to us to look into it.


'Until we see that bar it's impossible for us to know anything and very difficult for us to comment further.'
