A shocked mum found live maggots crawling inside a tin of dog food that was so disgusting it left a supermarket worker ‘gagging’ when she took it back for a refund.

Michelle Mcleish, from Bonnyrigg in Scotland, said she got the ‘heebie jeebies’ after seeing the tiny white larvae wriggling around the Butchers branded product that she bought from her local Tesco store.

The maggots were living in the sealed container and had burrowed into the meat inside.

Michelle was about to pour the food into a bowl for her beloved chocolate labrador Kaya when she spotted movement coming from the top of the tin.

She told MailOnline: ‘The video shows that owners need to be extra careful with products from these companies.

‘It was totally disgusting – I’m just glad I noticed before giving it to my dog

‘I can’t imagine eating maggots would be good for their tummies.’

Michelle also revealed that when she took the tin back to her local Tesco store, the ‘poor girl’ behind the counter was ‘gagging’ after opening the rotten food.

When contacted by MailOnline, Tesco pledged to refund Michelle’s purchase and raise the issue with the ssupplier (stock photo)

Store bosses quickly removed all Butchers brand cans from the shelves – but Michelle claims Tesco later said there was ‘nothing they could do’ apart from offering an apology.

When contacted by MailOnline, the supermarket pledged to refund the mum’s purchase and raise the issue with the supplier.

Butchers has been contacted for comment.
