Lauren Scott, 36, bought 20-month-old daughter Sofia a vegan sausage roll from the Greggs branch in Chapel Road, Worthing, on Thursday (November 11) and thought she would try some herself.

Lauren said: “I broke the sausage roll in half and gave her a bit, and thought I’d taste it as I had never tried a vegan sausage roll before.

“I felt something hard in there and had no idea what it could be, especially as it was a vegan sausage roll.

“I pulled it out and it was a human fingernail. I actually had to go and throw up when I found it. I still feel sick thinking about it.

“All Greggs have offered me is a £15 voucher and just said sorry, but its not enough – £15 for something my baby could have choked on is not acceptable, and I don’t really ever want to shop in another Greggs again.

“Considering it’s meant to be a vegan sausage roll, it shouldn’t have any body parts in it, especially human.”

A spokesperson from Greggs in response to this incident: “We take food hygiene and safety very seriously and are fully investigating this matter.
