Aldi customer posts concerning video claiming his son found ‘bits of wire’ inside his can of tuna

  • A shopper claims an Aldi tin of tuna his son was eating had metal bits inside of it
  • The Portview Tuna Treats pack was filmed with small pieces of wire next to  it
  • The father appealed to the supermarket heavy weight to ‘recall’ the item

An Aldi shopper has revealed his son found ‘bits of wire’ in a tin of tuna, and appealed to the supermarket giant to recall the product. 

The concerned dad posted a video on social media of a magnet attracting the metal parts found inside the Portview Tuna Treats pack.

‘My son had what appears to be bits of wire in his tuna,’ the post said. 

The Aldi customer said the metallic wires were found in his son’s can of tuna

‘Aldi Australia, asking for a recall on Portview Tuna Treats.’

The grocery company responded to the tweet and asked the father to give them feedback via an online form.

‘We’re concerned to see this and would like to investigate further,’ the Aldi representative wrote. 

The post comes after Aldi has faced recent customer backlash with complaints ranging from Aldi Milo being made in Singapore to shoppers being scolded by staff. 

Customers hit out at the German-owned retailer for selling Milo – a Nestle favourite made in NSW – to shoppers that was made in a Singapore factory. 

The customers said the overseas-made Milo had a ‘weird texture’ and a ‘revolting taste’. 

Last year a woman complained about an Aldi cashier scolding her for packing groceries too slowly into the trolley, while others said they had the same ordeal.  

Aldi has several current products that have been recalled, including an electric blanket, a pressure cooker, a vacuum cleaner and a tub of butter. 

‘On rare occasions, questions regarding a product’s quality, safety or errors in packaging or shipment do arise in the retail world,’ its website said. 

‘Aldi has a plan to swiftly and effectively remove such products from the store.’

Aldi was contacted for comment by Daily Mail Australia.  

The grocery giant responded to the social media post saying it was 'concerned' and 'would like to investigate further'
