A NSW woman claims she’s found maggots in an Aldi chocolate sponge cake.
The woman from regional NSW claims she received the cake as a gift from a friend who purchased the cake from Aldi in Port Macquarie.
"I was horrified - it was my son who found it and he said ‘oh my god mum, I think that's a maggot'," the woman told Yahoo7 News.
"I said 'no it can’t be' but it then it moved... you can see the maggot is very alive, I don't understand how it got in there as we had to cut the plastic seal off,"
She said the cake’s best before date was February 9 – but she didn’t expect to find maggots.
"It's only a best before date not a use by date. I expected maybe to find mould but certainly not maggots," she said.
An Aldi spokeperson has responded to the saga claiming they have had no other recorded concerns.
“If the allegations are found to be true, this obviously does not meet the high standards of quality we hold ourselves to. We welcome direct contact from this customer so that the matter can be investigated.”
