Sandwich shop chain Pret A Manger has withdrawn a new 'Virgin Mary' brand of crisps following complaints from Catholic groups that they could result in pregnancies.
'We've been here before,' said a Vatican spokesman.
The firm launched the spicy tomato crisps - based on the non-alcoholic version of a Bloody Mary cocktail - last week.
Pret A Manger's CEO said the company was withdrawing the crisps and donating them to homeless charities.
A spokesman for Shelter said they while they welcomed Pret A Manger's generosity in donating the 'Virgin Mary' crisps, in his experience homeless people much preferred Smokey Bacon.
Pret A Manger strongly deny claims made by some Catholic groups that the 'Virgin Mary' crisps contain minute holes.
