A woman was left disgusted after her brand new Dunelm Sofa throw arrived covered in animal faeces.
Tamsyn Kelly, 29, said she was shocked when she unwrapped the £21 pink throw to find what she claimed was faeces the size of sausage attached to the item.
The 29-year-old comedian and actor said: “I could not believe what I was looking at. I got some kitchen roll and felt that it was dried on and really attached to the throw.
“It was gross and it stank like fox poo.”
Tamsyn said she wrapped the throw up and put it outside the front door.
“I tried to contact Dunelm about it and they finally got in touch,” she said. “They said they would send me another throw, but I don’t want another throw from them.
“I want a refund, and I think I will get a throw from somewhere else and hopefully this time it will not come with anything extra.
“I always knew I’d get a poo in the post one day, but thought it would be because of my terrible personality, not my love of soft furnishings.
“I just want Dunelm to get in touch with me and to tell me that they did send a poo in the post and that they are sorry about it.
“I would also quite like some compensation because it was an upsetting experience. I can still smell that poo.”
A spokesperson for the furnishing company, which is based in Leicestershire , tweeted to Tamsyn: “Thank you for getting in touch with us. I am sincerely sorry to see the condition of which your item has been delivered in. Please understand that it is never our intention to disappoint our customers in this way.
“I would be more than happy to refund or replace this item for you dependent on your preference. Can I kindly ask for you to dispose of this item now if not done so already.
“Please accept our deepest apologies for the item you have received and I look forward to hearing from you.”
