Red-faced Sainbury’s bosses have admitted to an embarrassing spelling mistake on one of their products.

But embarrassingly for Sainsbury’s, some of the items were labelled incorrectly as ‘striaght leg’ fit instead.

The unfortunate error was spotted by an eagle-eyed customer in Essex.
The father-of-two, who noticed the error at a superstore in Springfield, said: ‘I was shocked to find that such a major high street retailer couldn’t spell such a simple word.
‘How many people must have seen that label before they went on the shelves?
‘What example does this show to our kids?
‘They’ve stitched themselves up.’

In response to the blunder, a supermarket spokesman said: ‘We’re aware of this spelling error which has now been corrected.
‘Those responsible have been sent back to school.’
