A customer saw a mouse nibbling the gingerbread cookies in a local Shoprite store and the internet wasn't amused.
In one of the images a mouse can clearly be seen standing on a tray of gingerbread men marked R1.99 each.
The pictures went viral this week, but it was snapped in June by one Pretty Ndhlovo who tweeted that she was grabbing a pie from a Shoprite in Yeoville, Joahnnesburg 'THEN BOOM, Mr Rat was right in front of me feasting on those yummies.'
Shoprite has since apologised for the incident saying all stock was destroyed and they are taking measures to deal with the rodent issue.
If Somalians, Pakistanis and any shop owner with sub-African -Asian Arab skin tone can be held accountable for selling expired goods surely @Shoprite_SA can tell us how a rat has so much freedom in a shop that passes health standards. pic.twitter.com/240wHny5hQ— English Major ✵ (@P3RF3CT1ONIST) September 4, 2018
