Tesco Investigates Prankster Who Bragged About Switching Vegetarian and Meat Lasagne Labels

The anonymous prank posted to social media sparked outrage because the “joke” could be dangerous


British supermarket chain Tesco recently launched an investigation after an anonymous prankster boasted online about switching the vegetarian and meat lasagne labels on packaging. The unidentified person posted on Facebook that he or she likes to “switch the cardboard sleeves” on vegetarian and meat lasagne meals in Tesco “just for fun,” and included a photo of the two packaged lasagnes side by side. The post has gone viral and sparked outrage, with many pointing out the dangerous consequences of the act. “Please don’t do this,” one commenter said in a Facebook group. “Some people have medical reasons for eating a vegetarian diet, including allergies and the inability to process meat. This could be dangerous.” A Tesco spokesperson told media outlet The Sun: “We are aware of this Facebook post and are monitoring the situation.”
