Asda fined over dead mice and flies at Enfield depot

Supermarket chain Asda has been fined £300,000 for food safety breaches after inspectors found dead mice and flies at its north London home delivery depot.
Council officers found mouse droppings on the shelves and cereal and sugar packets gnawed by rodents during a visit to the Enfield site in May 2016.
Asda admitted three food safety and hygiene breaches at Highbury Corner Magistrates' Court in January.
It was fined on Friday and ordered to pay £4,843 in court costs.
The depot, in Southbury Road, distributes food to online customers across London and Essex.

I'm always a little suspicious of stories of people finding dangerous or unpleasant things in food.

It is something that is easy to fake in the hope of getting a large amount of compensation.

I shall of course grovel and apologise profusely if this incident is proved to be genuine!
