An ALDI customer has shared a photo of an unwanted traveler in a head of broccoli. Posting on a popular Facebook group, shopper Chloe urged ALDI fans to check their produce, after finding a scorpion in her purchase. Chloe said the critter crawled out from the broccoli as she was preparing a meal. A photo posted by Chloe shows the brown scorpion alive and well on her chopping board.
An ALDI Australia spokesperson agreed that the animal was certainly a long way from home. “We strongly encourage customers to bring issues to our attention directly so we can review,” the spokesperson said. “Without contact with the customer, we can confirm that it is very unusual, and that this broccoli hitchhiker isn’t where they belong - which is likely back on our Aussie producers’ farm.”
