A student was left traumatised after finding an unknown substance resembling brains in her carton of orange juice.

Lauren Howard, 17, cut open the carton after detecting an unusual sour taste and bits floating inside her drink.

After discovering the gloopy matter inside, Lauren couldn’t sleep and spent the whole night retching.

The carton from Asda, which had an expiry date of October 2019, was sealed when Lauren went to pour herself a drink after dinner.

She said: ‘The only thing I didn’t do was shake it – something my mum always said I should do.

‘I began to pour it into a glass and it was coming out a red, bloody, orange colour.

‘I thought it was strange but just put it down to the fact I hadn’t shaken it.

Tracy, from Knaresborough, North Yorkshire, says she bought the 89p carton of juice from ASDA two weeks ago.

She was given a refund for the price of the item after complaining directly to the store.

Tracy says her daughter has been ‘traumatised by the entire thing’.

She added: ‘That night she barely slept, and she couldn’t drink anything, she was just retching.

‘She was worried about all drinks and what could be in them, even the tap water.

‘None of our family will be drinking juice from the carton again that’s for sure.’

Asda has apologised for the incident and launched an investigation.

A spokesman said: ‘We pride ourselves on always offering high quality products to our customers and are very sorry that the carton of juice Ms Howard purchased seems to have unfortunately been damaged and become mouldy.

‘We have launched an investigation to understand what could have happened, but can confirm that we have had no other complaints of this nature.

‘We have contacted Ms Howard to apologise and keep her updated with our investigations.’
