UK: Spider nest on Aldi banana

A customer of the Aldi in Thurles got a nasty surprise on Sunday when he got home and noticed a strange substance on one of the bananas he bought at the supermarket.

The customer said he had a suspicion it might be a spiders’ nest and he contacted the National Exotic Animal Sanctuary which confirmed, from a photo of the banana, that it looked like a nest.

The customer contacted Aldi on Facebook and by phone and was told instructions would be emailed to him so he would know what to do with the banana, which is still in his freezer now. The instructions never arrived.

In a statement to this website, Aldi said they would like to apologise to their customer for any inconvenience caused. “A senior member of Aldi’s staff is currently meeting with the customer to retrieve the product and apologise in person” the retailer added.
