Woman ignores cooking instructions on Tesco Edamame beans, complains about becoming ill as a result and gets an "insulting" £10 voucher. Goes on to complain that Tesco should add a warning to the packaging to clarify that they're unsafe to eat raw - won't somebody think of the children?! - even though they are sold ready to eat.

The most baffling thing about this is the decision to publish it.
