A shopper was left disgusted when she filmed grim green liquid oozing out of a lamb leg she bought from a supermarket.
Amanda Wright Rima went to a Coles supermarket in Sydney, Australia, and bought half a lamb leg for a Sunday roast last week.
In a social media post she wrote, Amanda explained she noticed something unusual seeping from the meat and therefore decided to record the moment when she cut it open for inspection.
The viral video, with nearly 22,000 views, shows a revolting creamy pale green liquid spilling from an opening as she pushes it around with a pair of cooking tongs.
She then makes an incision around and with a gentle push, the green liquid oozes out of the lamb leg and flows down to the baking tray.
Amanda later wrote in her post: “Cooked roast for 40 minutes and went to put the veggies in and noticed something strange seeping out.
“Needless to say we won’t be having lamb roast again after this.”
Viewers believed that it was a cyst formed on the lamb’s leg and it burst while being cooked in the oven.
One firmly suggested: “Looks like an abscess in the leg. That’s pus. Out of curiosity was there a funky smell?”
“That is the most disgusting thing I have ever seen,” a second one wrote. “Have heard that animals have cysts but I have never seen them. Won’t be eating lamb again.”
Others likened it to a pimple-popping video as a Facebook user said: “This is the best pimple popper clip ever!”
Amanda said the lamb was halal and vacuum-sealed in a package.
A Coles spokesperson said the customer has received an apology and refund for the “unpleasant experience”, according to Daily Mail Australia.
She said: “We have strict quality standards that all livestock partners must meet.
“Coles has already issued this customer a refund and apologised for the unpleasant experience.
“As always we encourage customers to return any item they’re not 100% happy with to their nearest store for a full refund or replacement.”
