A frustrated shopper has taken to social media to expose behaviour she claims to see on a daily basis – women fighting over baby formula.
Taken at a Coles supermarket in Toowong, inner Brisbane, the footage shows women frantically cramming multiple tins of milk powder into shopping baskets.
Cindy Emma posted the video to her Facebook page, where fellow shoppers vented their anger at people who exceed the store limit of four tins per person.

A Coles spokesperson responded to Ms Emma’s concerns, saying they ‘expect our stores to enforce the 4 tin limit per customer’.
Ms Emma believes the customers she sees fighting over tins milk powder ‘every morning’ do not find it difficult to get around the rules.
‘Let’s be honest Coles and staff don’t limit, if they do as your store manager told me they change clothing and return. Every day!’ she wrote.
‘I see the same people every day at the same store at opening time running to the baby section frantically trying to beat each other to it,’ she told Daily Mail Australia.
‘I have been told by staff they can be back with in minutes sometimes wearing a different outfit buying more always using cash to pay.
‘The shelves are empty 30 seconds after store opens. I definitely think more should be done about it as its obviously being sent out of Australia for large profits. So there’s a tax issue too.’
Lack of confidence in food safety in China has created an underground industry of online sellers known as ‘daigou’.
Daigou buy much sought-after products such as baby formula and sell them to Chinese buyers via apps such as WeChat.
