Chef took object to dish as Jehovah’s Witness believe blood is sacrosanct

Sainsbury’s has been forced to apologise after its Jehovah’s Witness chef refused to serve a customer black pudding with his Full English breakfast.

Alan MacKay was stunned when he was told he could not enjoy the staple, made up of animal fat, blood and oatmeal, with his meal at the branch in Arnold, Nottingham.

After receiving his incomplete dish the former police officer was told the black pudding would not be served because it was against the religious beliefs of the chef to do so.
