The incident sparked a wave of outrage from other social media users.
‘That’s a recall right there,’ wrote one. Added another: ‘Deadly.’
The incident has forced Aldi to launch an urgent investigation.
‘As the product is labelled ‘almonds’ and it is claimed to contain peanuts, we are moving at pace to validate this claim,’ the spokeswoman told News.com.au.
‘Since receiving this customer contact, our immediate action has been the review of all products in our stores and the stock in our warehouses.
‘To date, we have not discovered another case.’
The spokesperson added to News.com.au that ‘we will immediately conduct and publicise a voluntary recall of the product’ if the mum’s claims are substantiated.
