An Aldi shopper has generated outrage after highlighting an ‘odd’ detail on a package of frozen fish.
The customer noticed that a box of ‘Ocean Royale Southern Blue Whiting Fillets with Coconut and Lime Batter’ from the popular supermarket contained only three fish pieces.
He decided to share his frustration and dissatisfaction over the quantity on a popular Aldi fans Facebook group.
‘Bought these to try and it’s a pack of three pieces! Why three? Why not four? If a person wants two pieces and there’s two people, one would need to buy two packets,’ the unhappy customer wrote.

The customer further pointed out that the box has enough space for an extra piece of fish and believes it is deceiving.
‘There is clearly room for four pieces in these packets. Seems like a bit of a trap to me!’ he wrote.
The shopper’s criticism over the product created a fiery debate on the social media website with a flurry of comments left by passionate Aldi customers.
Some shoppers agreed with the discontent expressed by the customer and believed having three pieces of fish in a packet was ‘stupid’.
One user wrote: ‘Bit odd to have three, not two, four, six or eight.’
‘YES, I hate that there’s only three!’ wrote another.
While a third user wrote: ‘Discovered that too, had to give my husband and I one and a half each!’

However, other members of the Facebook group were unphased over the amount of fish in the box and believed the customer’s complaint was ridiculous.
One user wrote: ‘What if a person wants one piece or three pieces? Does it matter? Perhaps read the package before buying and decide then. It clearly tells you the portions included.’
‘I love three packs. Three people in our house it’s perfect maybe it should be the new norm. Not everyone is two adults two kids anymore!’ said another.
While a third said: ‘It’s cheap as anyway. Pull ya head in.’
