She pondered what could have happened had she not noticed the plastic:

Just last year, another Weet-Bix product, Oatibix Flakes, was recalled. The product allegedly contained pieces of soft blue rubber.

In the United States, Kellogg’s Special K Red Berries was recalled in 2013 after consumers found glass fragments in their cereal boxes.

The mother warned others to be cognizant when feeding their children pre-packaged food. Though it may be safe most times, you can never be too careful.

Creighton told 7 News Perth:

Creighton has since filed complaints to the Weet-Bix company and to the Aldi supermarket chain.
