An Aldi customer who was claimed to have been seen swapping eggs from one box to another in the store has been criticised on social media as people branded her actions as incredible and unfair.
And furious Aldi customer says she warned staff after watching a fellow customer tamper with eggs before putting some back onto the racks.
She explained that while she was shopping at her local Aldi, she was standing behind a lady waiting to pick a box of eggs when she noticed she was opening cartons.
Numerous customers will look inside the box to ensure none of the eggs have been damaged, but she claims this customer was transferring free-range eggs and regular eggs between the cartons.
And she wrote on the Aldi Mums Facebook group that she’d noticed her switching eggs from one box to another, but wasn’t certain what she was doing until she put the cage-free box back.
She switched caged ones with cage-free eggs.
Free-range eggs are believed to be more ethical, but it seems the customer didn’t want to pay the higher price that came with it.
Not only would the move defraud the system by getting herself free-range eggs for a reduced price, but she also left the regular eggs in a free-range box for another clueless patron to pick up.
As reported by Yahoo, the customer who witnessed the deception, believed to have taken place in Australia, said she alerted a manager about the incident but the customer had already left before they could intervene.
However, people have probably been swapping eggs for years, but the point of this is that with COVID, people should quit messing about with food, and this should be a criminal infraction because food should never be tampered with, and this might sound ridiculous, but what she did was a type of theft.
