When making your complaint you should:
- Retain the uneaten suspect food and foreign object in a covered container. If the food is perishable or is affected by mould place it in a freezer or refrigerator until we can collect it to help delay any further deterioration.
- Retain any packaging you may have, as this will provide important information such as use-by dates and batch codes, which will be needed for the investigation.
- Where possible, retain any receipts of purchase
