ALDI has recalled 38,000 bags of frozen mixed veg after a customer found half a rat inside a bag.

The supermarket giant has issued a recall after Pat Bateman found bits of rodent in the product while feeding her two-year-old granddaughter lunch.

She told The Sun: "We had eaten almost all of the bag before we saw it – and what’s even worse – I fed it to my youngest granddaughter.

"It’s a wonder none of us ended up physically ill."

According to an internal Aldi report seen by the paper, three complaints were made about ‘pieces of small rodent’ being found in the same product.

Aldi said in a statement: "Following Mrs Bateman’s complaint, we removed this product from sale to prevent any further issues.

"We have suspended all orders from this production site whilst we investigate this matter."
