A 17-month-old toddler picked up a piece of cannabis she found in a KFC nappy-changing room and put it in her mouth, horrifying her mother.
When Stacey Rush spotted her child sucking on the drug, she quickly removed it and complained to the manager, who merely offered her a Fruit Shoot drink to wash out the child's mouth.
The mother-of-two told the Daily Mail that the manager at the Wharf Road, Newbury, branch of the fast food chain in Berkshire said 'it happens all the time' and there was nothing he could do about it.
'I didn't spot it but then I saw Lily had something in her mouth. When I realised it was cannabis I felt sick,' she said.
'It was all over the floor mixed with tobacco. What if she had swallowed it?'
A KFC spokesman told the newspaper that the chain had apologised to Ms Rush for her experience.
'We take hygiene very seriously in all of our stores, and our toilets are cleaned every half an hour,' he said.
'We are currently investigating the substance to determine what it was, and have reminded staff at our Newbury restaurant to be extra-vigilant in the future.'
