Letterkenny Circuit Court heard the incident happened while the children were on holiday with their family in 2004.Barrister Peter Nolan said once the egg was open, the children found it was “riddled with worms and larvae.”The shocked children were upset for a number of days after the incident but suffered no long-term physical affects.However he added “They now have a very negative association with Easter. It ruined their holidays somewhat.”The children were in court with their mother.Mr Nolan said the company who sold the egg, Fernando Barros-Produtos, had made an offer to the children in the case.They had offered each child €2,000 in compensation which he said he had advised his clients to accept.“A sum of €2,000 has been put forward for each child.“It should not have been issued here but it should have been issued in Portugal.“We are advising out clients to accept it because if we travel to Portugal we may only get €20,” he said.Judge Keenan Johnson agreed to the awards.CHILDREN’S EASTER NIGHTMARE AFTER FINDING WORMS IN CHOCOLATE EGG was last modified: April 2nd, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:childrenchocolatedonegalEaster egglarvaeLetterkenny Circuit Courtwormslast_img read more
