Bobbie Gordon, from Sherwood in Nottingham, ordered an online grocery shop delivery from Asda but she was shocked to be billed £930.11 for the piece of fruit — instead of 11p.
Ms Gordon had ordered a grocery shop as usual from Asda, ordering about £70 worth of groceries.
However it wasn’t until she received a print-out of the bill with her delivery that she spotted the high cost of the loose banana.
Luckily Ms Gordon wasn’t charged for the transaction as her credit card company’s fraud team spotted the unusually high cost of the shop and texted her to say the payment could not go through.
Ms Gordon said Asda has apologised for the “computer error”.
“I told my seven-year-old ‘you must really enjoy this banana, you must cherish every mouthful’,” she said.
An Asda spokeswoman said: “Whoops, looks like we’ve slipped up here. Whilst our bananas are excellent, even we agree that they are not worth that much and clearly there has been a glitch in our system.
“We would like to thank Ms Gordon for keeping her eyes peeled and flagging this error to us and we are investigating to ensure it doesn’t happen again.”
