But now his favorite dish is off the menu after he nearly swallowed the masticated gum.
“I think it’s disgusting,” said Jamie, who is a full-time carer. “I’d cut the pizza in half and given half to Callum and half to my other son Ollie.
“I was upstairs when Callum shouted up, ‘Mom, there’s something on my pizza.’
“I came downstairs and I couldn’t believe it when I saw it. It was a chewed up piece of gum. It’s disgraceful.
“Obviously the person making the pizza was munching away and it fell out of their mouth. I can’t believe they just left it there. “Callum said he’ll never eat another pizza. Just the thought of it makes him ill.”.
