Horrified Aldi Shopper Finds 'Intestines' Inside £3.75 Chicken
An Aldi customer was left disgusted after he bought a chicken that still had 'intestines' inside it.
Gordon Duncan, from Aberdeen, was horrified to find the animal still had 'organs' in it, when he got it home from the shop.
He shared the photos on social media and said that he reported the budget supermarket chain to environmental health because of the chicken.
The images show a charred carcass which has been carved slightly, exposing the grim innards of the animal.
A close up of the meat shows the tangled insides.
Aldi says that the meat should be a 'large fresh chicken without giblets. Raised to the highest welfare standards from farms we know and trust'.
Duncan thinks otherwise.
He shared the photos on an Aldi Facebook page, saying: "Absolutely disgusted at what I found inside this Aldi chicken after I cooked it.
"The intestines etc are all still inside! I will never buy from Aldi again.
"I am also disgusted at the low level of customer service I received this morning when I called to complain.

"I have since emailed Aldi Managing Director and Environmental Health."
A customer service agent from Aldi replied to Gordon's post, saying they are 'so sorry' for what he found.
Many people were with Duncan on his opinions, with some saying they would never shop there again.
One person replied: "Omg that is disgusting, don't be buying chicken there again."
Another added: "This has just confirmed my fear of Aldi chicken."
And a third said: "Never buying chicken there again."
But others thought he was overreacting.
One person said: "If you eat meat then it usually comes from a living thing with organs, that chicken is still fine.
"Just pull out and bin what you don't want, chickens have innards. I don't know why some people are so shocked to discover this."
And someone else commented to say: "Just shows it's fresh and real. I'd be disgusted if it was something that you wouldn't expect to find in a chicken that's just it's innards, it's easily missed."
An Aldi spokesperson said: "Issues like this are very rare and whilst it doesn't affect product safety, we are sorry that we didn't meet our usual high quality standards on this occasion.
"We have contacted Mr Duncan to offer him a full refund."
