There's a 23% increase in the number of complaints.

The Food Safety Authority received 3,414 complaints last year.

There's been a 23 per cent increase in the number of complaints, according to the FSAI.

In one case a disposable glove was found inside a pie, while hair, insects, stones, and pieces of metal and glass are the most commonly reported objects.

The FSAI says 'foreign body contamination of food' was frequently reported.

Customers reported a maggot found in soup, a metal screw in spareribs, glass in porridge and sweet potato fries, and hair found in numerous takeaways.

If members of the public who have a complaint they wish to make can email: info@fsai.ie
