A Coles shopper has discovered a revolting thick green liquid oozing from a leg of lamb she bought at the supermarket.
Sydney woman Amanda Wright Rima was preparing to cook her family a roast dinner on Sunday night when she ‘noticed something strange’ seeping from the meat.
Inspecting further, she made an incision and applied pressure to the joint, and a pale green fluid erupted from the surface.

The horrified mother filmed the results and shared it on Facebook on Tuesday.
‘Cooked roast for 40 minutes and went to put the veggies in and noticed something strange seeping out,’ she wrote.
‘Needless to say we won’t be having lamb roast again after this.’
Facebook users suggested the liquid was pus from a cyst beneath the skin, which can be hard to detect.
‘Oh my god that’s disgusting. If u didn’t check u would of all been so sick,’ one person responded on Twitter.
Someone else added: ‘This is the grossest thing I’ve ever seen.’
‘That’s enough to turn you vegetarian,’ a third said.
A Coles Spokesperson said the company has apologised to Ms Wright Rima and offered her a refund for the half leg roast on the bone (pictured)
Others said the same incident has previously happened to them.
‘Yuck I hate when the meat or chicken has a tumour or cyst in it, have to chuck the whole lot out,’ another comment read.
One woman added: ‘Looks like an abscess in the leg. That’s pus.’
A Coles spokesperson told Daily Mail Australia the customer has received an apology and refund for the ‘unpleasant experience’.
‘We have strict quality standards that all livestock partners must meet,’ she said.
‘Coles has already issued this customer a refund and apologised for the unpleasant experience.’
‘As always we encourage customers to return any item they’re not 100% happy with to their nearest store for a full refund or replacement.’
