A mother was shocked to find a dead lizard in her young daughter’s MamyPoko pants diaper that she newly purchased from an NTUC Fairprice supermarket outlet.
Unfortunately, the mother did not see the lizard when she was putting the diaper on her daughter but only discovered the pest when her daughter screamed that there was something in her diaper.
Facebook user Vernice Lim wrote on social media that the diaper containing the lizard was from the first piece she used from a new unopened pack of diapers she purchased from the NTUC Fairprice supermarket at Jurong Point.
Lim wrote that she immediately put the diaper on her child after she opened the pack and indicated that there was no chance for the lizard to have gotten into the diaper because she did not leave the packet open and unattended:
“Dear all mummies and friends…please take a look before you let your kids wear diaper… this mummypoko pants I brought it from Fairprice ntuc Jurong point.
“This is actually the 1st piece of diaper taken out in an newly unopened packet*. and was preparing to use immediately. i didnt open and just leave it there . I’m really sorry because I didn’t actually look at it…was actually my Daughter the one screaming about it.”
Lim indicated that she is contacting the National Environment Agency (NEA) and MamyPoko pants directly to seek redress.
In the meantime, her Facebook post is trending online with over 350 shares from her original post and another 350+ shares on another page that re-posted the pictures.
