Woolworths Admits To Error That Meant Kids Were Fed Dog Food
Supermarket giant Woolworths has been forced to admit that their brightly coloured dog biscuit packs have found their way into the snack food aisle and into children’s hands.
The grocery giant has apologised after a Sydney mother accidentally fed her children the pet food after thinking the biscuits were aimed at children.
Woolworths went onto say they believe that this is the only occurrence of the treat being stocked among human snacks but more images are appearing online of the treats above Tiny Teddies across the country.
Tania Toomey from Sydney wrote on Woolworths Facebook yesterday that she put the biscuits in ‘lunch boxes and kids came home that afternoon and said ‘yuck they are disgusting,” “On closer inspection they are DOG treats. It does say that it is pet food only — human friendly but not recommended! BE CAREFUL the store is much disorganised.”
A Woolworths spokeswoman has responded saying “Woolworths can confirm that a single packet of Scooby Snacks dog biscuits was accidentally placed in the biscuit aisle at the Woolworths North Strathfield store last week and subsequently purchased by a customer.
“We can confirm that the product is stocked as intended in the pet food aisle in the stores where it’s sold, with the product marked as ‘Pet Food Only’.
“Store teams have had further communication this week to ensure that no packets are mistakenly placed in the wrong aisle.”
