Pub row erupts after feces found in ice cream

A bitter row has broken out between one of Sydney’s largest tourist pubs and a family of five who accused chefs of serving human excrement in their gelato after they complained about noise during a football match.

State government food minister Ian Macdonald confirmed on Wednesday that frozen fecal matter had been found in a serving of chocolate gelato offered to placate pub patron Steve Whyte and his wife Jessica, who became “violently ill” after eating it.

“The stench went through my nostrils, I retched and spat it into the napkin,” Jessica Whyte told the Daily Telegraph newspaper, recounting what local media are calling “gelati-gate.”
