(UPI) – A grocery store chain said it is investigating after an Australian customer found a venomous snake inside the plastic bag with her pre-packaged lettuce.
Lesley Kuhn of Mosman, a Sydney suburb, posted photos to the Facebook group Mosman Living showing the pale headed snake – a venomous species – her son found inside the package of lettuce the family bought from Aldi. "Check packaged lettuces carefully," Kuhn wrote.
Aldi officials said they are investigating the discovery with help from wildlife rescue charity WIRES, which is currently caring for the snake and is planning to release it back into the wild.
