An ALDI shopper has been turned off the supermarket giant’s pizza range after discovering an unwanted topping on her meatlovers pizza.

Taking to the ALDI Mum’s Facebook page, the customer from NSW warned others to look before they bite after claiming to have found a fingernail in her pizza.

“(This) was in the meatlover’s pizza slices! Just letting everyone know to be careful,” she posted.

The woman later updated the post to identify the mysterious object.

“Edit... It’s definitely a finger nail clipping! I’m a big fan of ALDI but this has definitely turned me off buying the pizza,” the customer said, adding she had messaged the supermarket about the nasty find in the pizza purchased from the Bathurst location, and was waiting for a reply.

Members of the group were disgusted by the photo and were quick to share their thoughts.

“That is vile... I’d be fuming,” one person replied.

“That is gross!! Who on earth has toenails around in a food manufacturing plant?!” another person wondered.

Some people took the opportunity to make light of the situation.

“That puts a whole new meaning to finger licking good,” a joker wrote.

The majority of comments were from people appalled by the find.

“Eww we just had ALDI pizza for a quick dinner fix last night,” a horrified customer wrote.

One person questioned the object being a nail but did suspect it shouldn’t be on a pizza.

“It’s something broken off a machine. If your toenails or finger nails look like that go to a doctor!” a person wrote.

ALDI told Yahoo News Australia it was investigating the allegation with the customer directly.
