A DARLING Downs mother has been left horrified after an orange she cut for her kids' lunchboxes bizarrely turned purple overnight.

Mrs Postle told Nine News she returned the fruit to the grocery store because she was concerned it posed a health risk.

She said despite the purple colouring, the fruit smelt and felt like an orange.

Woolworths confirmed the fruit had been returned due to the discolouration.
