Couple horrified after finding entire BIRD in Aldi salad bag after they’d already eaten some of the lettuce

A COUPLE were horrified when they found an entire dead bird in a bag of salad from Aldi after they had already eaten some of the lettuce.

Andrew Briers, 53, and his wife had tucked into the leaves without noticing the wet carcass and immediately “felt sick” upon realising.

The retired veteran had purchased the bag from Aldi in Havant, Hampshire, during his weekly shop, and prepared a lunch with it the following day.

That evening, Andrew began to cook dinner for the couple and went to place the remaining salad on the plates, only to see the dead animal.

Andrew said: “Initially I thought it was part of the salad plant, then to my horror realised it was a dead bird.

“The thought we had eaten from a washed salad with the wet bird carcass in it is disgusting.

“We both felt sick and we threw our dinner away as I had put some on the plate in the evening.”

He immediately contacted Aldi and claims no one has returned his call.

But when he took the bag back to the store he was issued a £1.49 refund, he said.

Andrew thinks the bird is a small finch but has “no idea” how it got in there.

He said: “My concern is if there any health issues as we have eaten from the bag.

“My question for Aldi is, how long from me opening the bag has this bird been in there? A couple of days or a week?

“I don’t want to think about it if it’s been there longer.

“We will not be eating salads for a while!”

He bought the strong and peppery Italian style salad on January 25.

An Aldi spokesperson said: “Our supplier has extensive quality measures in place which means issues of this nature are exceptionally rare.

“We apologise to Mr Briers that, on this occasion, our usual high standards were not met.”
