Areas of Law / General Legal Advice

My grandchildren and I were eating a crisp-type snack when we noticed the aluminium foil lining of the tube had flaked off on to the crisps. I was horrified to think that we had been eating aluminium, which is associated with memory loss. The firm sent us a cheque for £50 but assured us that the packing conforms with the foodstuffs legislation. I can’t say I’m satisfied; is there anything else I can do?

You would need an expert medical evaluation of the harm you are likely to have suffered from consuming relatively small amounts of aluminium foil. I have to say I think the results would be at best inconclusive. However you could send a sample of the packaging to the council’s trading standards officers who may take this up and get an assessment of the product’s safety.
