Muslim Mum FURIOUS At Aldi After Vegetarian Lasagne Sauce “TASTED LIKE BACON”!

A Muslim mother is horrified by Aldi vegetarian lasagne sauce and says she feels like she has “betrayed her religion” claiming the sauce “tasted like bacon”.

Rianne Ward, 39, was shocked after purchasing the product from her local Aldi, to which her son bought her attention too after tasting the product.

After trying the sauce for herself, she became convinced that cross contamination had occurred.

Rianne, who converted to Islam seven years ago, relayed her experience to the Derby Telegraph, stating:

“I just sat down and my young son said ‘Mummy, this smells like bacon’. When I ate it, it tasted just like bacon which made me feel sick. I was absolutely seething and went back down to the store. I just went in with the jar of sauce and made them smell it. I thought it must have been contaminated.”

After being completely dissatisfied with the supermarket’s response, the mother has since decided to take more drastic action.

She has proceeded to lodge a formal complaint, and has kept the offending jar in her refrigerator in case it is required for evidence.

Hoping to be compensated by Aldi, she stated to reporters:

“I’m absolutely furious. I’ve been a Muslim for years now and avoided bacon for so long. Then this happens. I felt like I’d betrayed my religion. Aldi have told me they are going to test the sauce to see if it has been contaminated. It’s just not on.”

Aldi insist that there is an innocent explanation for the incident.

A spokesperson for the company said:

“We are sorry to hear Ms Ward is unhappy with this product but can reassure her that our lasagne sauce is completely meat free. The product is flavoured with smoked salt which gives the distinctive taste.”

Whether the sauce error was accidental or not it is still unproven, but it’s definitely not the first time that a major food business has come under fire for bacon being where it shouldn’t.

McDonald’s earlier this year were under scrutiny after a customer posted a photo of a spicy veggie wrap containing several rashers of bacon.

The franchise offered the victim a £15 voucher and their “sincere apologies.”
