Leaping into action, Merlin raced to get her daughter to a hospital. Thankfully, this type of fungus doesn’t result in lasting harm, with most discomfort being psychosomatic, so Dionne made a full recovery and was discharged from the hospital.
Others have also reported purchasing fruit with this fungus from Morrisons and another supermarket called Lidl.
Upset and concerned, Merlin urged these stores to perform a more thorough check of their fruits.
Commenters on Merlin’s Facebook post reasoned that it was not possible to check every single piece of fruit in the grocery store, and suggested that the best idea would be for buyers to be careful of the food that they eat instead.
