‘I thought I saw movement inside the container … and there’s Mr cockroach. ‘I was horrified. They are filthiest animals around,’Ms Coghlan told 9News.    

‘I cannot understand how a cockroach can get in. I would never buy meat there again.’

Ms Coghlan contacted Aldi’s customer service via email and a spokesperson said they will review the incident and contact the supplier of the meat.  

‘We would like to sincerely apologise for your recent experience that you have encountered,’ an email from an Aldi spokeswoman said. 

Ms Coglan said it was the first time she had bought meat from the discount supermarket. 

‘Since speaking to the customer regarding the incident, we have commenced a thorough investigation and we will continue to keep the customer updated during this process,’ an ALDI Australia spokesperson said.

‘We can confirm that this is an isolated incident.’

Timothy Rock, from Dapto in NSW, claimed in January 2017 he had just popped open a new jar of Colway stringybark honey mustard that he had bought from Aldi when he spotted a maggot. 

Mr Rock wrote on Facebook that he thought the larvae was dead when he first saw it, but it soon started squirming around. 

A disgusting video that he posted online shows the live mustard-coated animal sliding around on a kitchen counter, leaving a slimy trail of the condiment behind.
