Dev Alahan's Pizzagate scandal rocks UK

About Canada's Coronation Street... 

This is perhaps a bigger controversy than Tassel's 'Bring your mother to work' day. A bigger scandal than Ken Barlow's affair with Wendy Crozier. A public health danger more deadly than Pat Phelan.

I'm talking about those boxes of pizzas on the shelf of Dev Alahan's grocery store. Check them out the next time you're watching a scene in the corner shop.
Aren't those pizzas supposed to be frozen or at least refrigerated? Are these some kind of new-fangled UHT pizzas that don't require refrigeration? Did Elon Musk's crack team of scientists develop yet another breakthrough while working on the Spacex rockets?

Whatever the reason behind those ill-placed killer convenience foods, they certainly seemed to have sparked a furor in the UK. Viewers (with time on their hands) took to Twitter en masse to protest, even calling for a boycott of the business.

One fan tweeted: “Don’t buy stuffed crust pepperoni pizzas from Dev’s corner shop on @itvcorrie. They’re stacked on a shelf and not in the chiller/freezer #foodpoisoning.”

Oh and remember the schedule change for Corrie on CBC (4:30 pm in the East but do check local listings for the time in your area).
