Mr Sandhu said he immediately spoke to the store manager at the family-owed business, leading them to destroy all the remaining spinach stock they had on their shelves.
But the horrified man is still looking for answers.
‘I am still thinking that where is the quality check???’ he asked on social media.
‘They are selling dead mice hidden in sealed packets.’
A spokesperson for the grocer’s spinach supplier Supafresh Salads told Yahoo7 that the incident was the first time anything like it had happened in its 20-year history.
‘We have every possible inspection and prevention within our process,’ spokesperson Troy Cukrov said. ‘Our crops are grown in open fields. We have rodent traps throughout our farms. We have insect agitators on our harvesters.
‘We have rodent traps throughout our factory. We double wash all of our salads. We have inspection belts throughout the factory where the product is inspected during washing. We visually inspect during washing. We visually inspect every bag before we pack it.’
‘This is the first time we have ever had a problem like this in a bag of our product in the millions and millions of bags we have supplied throughout Western Australia.’
The spokesman apologised ‘unreservedly’ on behalf of Spudshed, urging customers to be compassionate to the challenges faced by farmers.
‘I plead with you to support us and understand,’ he added.
