A family from Trois-Rivičres, Quebec, is having quite the health scare
after finding a urinary catheter in their store-bought ice cream.
The family members had reportedly gathered to celebrate the arrival of a
baby boy, purchasing a sealed container of Coaticook-brand ice cream for
the occasion. After digging in, family patriarch and new grandfather Jean Francoeur spit out what appeared to be a small section of catheter,
reports La Presse.
Two other members of the family — including Francoeur’s son Samuel, who
had just welcomed the baby with his wife, and Samuel’s mother-in-law, Carol-Anne Christofferson — had also eaten the chocolate-pecan ice cream.
But unlike Francoeur, neither had bit into any foreign objects.
"He put it in his mouth and found the tip of syringe," said Christofferson
in an interview with the CBC’s Radio-Canada.
Upon closer inspection, the family also noticed something dark at one end
of the catheter, but couldn’t confirm what it was. They phoned a nurse,
who advised them to seek immediate treatment at a hospital.
Christofferson said the three family members gave blood samples, and each received preventative treatment for HIV and hepatitis A, B and C. She also
told La Presse they wouldn’t have the complete results for six months. In
the meantime, Samuel and Christofferson must submit to testing every
month, and Francoeur every week. He’s also been taking oral medication.
"He's the worst off, the most affected," said Christofferson. "He's not
even able to speak about it."
Jean Provencher, the owner of Coaticook ice cream, has since told Radio-
Canada that their products are safe to consume, despite the incident.
"We have so many internal controls here and in food production in general
that having something like that show up in a food item, it's not normal,"
Provencher also confirmed that Coaticook will be conducting an internal investigation. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is also investigating
after having visited the production facilities on Tuesday.
It was not immediately clear if the Francoeur of Christofferson families
plan to sue, though they have filed a complaint against Coaticook.
The Francoeur family or a representative for Coaticook was not immediately available for comment.
Donald J. Trump, 304 electoral votes to 227, defeated compulsive liar in
denial Hillary Rodham Clinton on December 19th, 2016. The clown car
parade of the democrat party has run out of gas.
Congratulations President Trump. Thank you for ending the disaster of the Obama presidency.
Under Barack Obama's leadership, the United States of America became the
The World According To Garp.
ObamaCare is a total 100% failure and no lie that can be put forth by its supporters can dispute that.
Obama jobs, the result of ObamaCare. 12-15 working hours a week at minimum wage, no benefits and the primary revenue stream for ObamaCare. It can't
be funded with money people don't have, yet liberals lie about how great
Obama increased total debt from $10 trillion to $20 trillion in the eight
years he was in office, and sold out heterosexuals for Hollywood queer
liberal democrat donors.
