A woman claims she found in a used condom in her Easter cake.
A woman was utterly sickened when she cut into a shop bought cake and found a ‘used condom’ in the middle.
She thinks the revolting addition was an act of revenge from an angry employee who had just been sacked from the store.
Tatiana says she found the condom in an Easter cake she had bought from an O’Key supermarket in the city of Tyumen in south-central Russia’s Tyumen Oblast region.
Easter cakes, which are similar to Italian panettone cakes, are traditionally baked in Russia on Orthodox Easter Day on May 1.
Tatiana said: “When we cut the cake, we saw a strange rubber object. Initially we thought it might be a rubber glove.”
But when they looked more closely they were horrified to discover that it was a used condom that had been baked along with the rest of the cake.
The Easter cake was baked in the supermarket’s own bakery so Tatiana complained to the head office of the chain.
She added: “It seems that the company let some staff go just before Easter. This might be their revenge.”
Tatiana was even more shocked when she learnt that only women worked in the supermarket’s bakery.
The O’Key supermarket chain is investigating but insists that the foreign object inside the cake was a finger from a rubber glove.
The incident has sparked plenty of debate on local internet forums with one unnamed netizen posting: “This is just crazy.”
But one more conservative user commented: “This just shows that women should not be lazy and should bake cakes for their family instead of buying them from supermarkets.”
Tyumen was the first Russian settlement in Siberia and remains one of its most important industrial and economic centres east of the Ural Mountains.
