A traveller was surprised to pick up a baguette at Dublin airport, only to find two flies embedded in the bread.
Martin Warde, an Irish stand-up comedian, tweeted a picture of the offending item, a breakfast roll he’d picked up at Terminal 1.
“Just bought this breakfast roll in the shop at terminal 1 at Dublin Airport,” he tweeted. “Why are there two weird looking insects stuck to it? F**king disgusting.”

He added: “Look guys, it was disgusting to find, but I was on the bus by the time I found them.
“They look like they were mid throws of love making too, lucky little s***s. Anyway, I’m on a protein rich diet and you wouldn’t complain if a barman accidentally gave you an extra pint.”
Warde obviously wasn’t too traumatised by the experience, writing: “I ate them.”
The picture clearly shows the insects squashed onto the bread.
He told Dublin Live that he’s “eaten much worse” and noted that it looked like the roll had been used “to swat two flies that may have been on a counter”.
“I’m more annoyed I wasn’t asked if I’d like flies with that,” he added. “They missed a trick there I reckon.”
A Dublin Airport spokesperson said it is taking the complaint “very seriously”.
They said: “We have contacted Mr Warde, apologised for the unacceptable experience that he had at one of the food outlets here, and sought further information from him to help us investigate the issue.
“We have raised the issue with the company that operates the outlet in question and it has also apologised to Mr Warde directly. The company has confirmed that the issue did not arise within its Dublin Airport outlet, as its bread rolls are sourced externally. The company is investigating this incident with its supplier and will report back to Mr Warde and to Dublin Airport officials in due course.”
They added that, while the number of food safety complaints received each year is “miniscule”, the airport “takes all complaints of this nature very seriously, and all of the firms that operate food outlets on the airport campus have to abide by all applicable national and EU food safety regulations at all times.”
