Condom found in canned tomato sauceA woman in Brazil has found a condom in a can of tomato sauce.
She was later awarded around $5,000 (£3,000) after a court judge ordered the sauce company to pay her in "moral damages", reports AFP.
Judge Joao Gilberto Marroni Vitola said that the "grotesque" discovery had "profoundly disgusted the family".
The sauce company emphasised that its production and packaging is all automated.
The woman, who lives in the state of Rio Grande do Sul, was applying tomato sauce on her meatballs. She came across the condom at the bottom of the can after finishing her meal.
