Across three tweets, team member Sharon said: "Hi there, thank you for getting in touch. I am so sorry that this was in the sausage roll you bought from us! This must have been quite the shock.
"Due to the seriousness of this, I ask that you take the plastic, the products packaging and your receipt (if you still have it) into your local Extra or Superstore.
"My colleagues at the Customer Service Desk will take all the details needed and will send this off to our supplier to investigate further. You will then hear back about the outcome within 2 weeks.
"If you have any questions, please let me know. Thanks – Sharon."
The woman hasn't provided updates to her Twitter account or replied to Tesco's tweets to her image.
