Royal Mail forced to apologise for pork dinners

The article continues:

Staff at Birmingham’s Aston sorting office had been treated to a buffet for their efforts throughout the year.

But the gesture backfired when Muslim workers realised the scotch eggs contained pork.

The snack was one of the options available to vegetarians and those from religious backgrounds who were unable to eat meat.

A spokesman for Royal Mail said an apology had been issued and admitted it had been an genuine mistake.

“Regrettably, our catering contractors wrongly labelled an item of food containing meat as a vegetarian option,” said the spokesman.

“As soon as the mistake was realised the items were withdrawn from the buffet. An apology has been issued to all staff.”

The free Christmas lunch was a way of the postal company thanking its staff after a tough year.
