Cheryl Shapiro was shopping with her grandson at a Los Angeles Walgreens on Saturday when she spotted something in the store's Hanukkah section that made her stop in her tracks.

It was blue wrapping paper with a maze of silver lines — that she claimed formed a Nazi swastika symbol.

Shapiro said she was "appalled" and brought the gift wrap design to the attention of the manager in the Northridge, California, store.

"I explained what was going on and how upset I was," Shapiro told KNBC-TV. "I told them I wanted this taken off the shelves immediately — not just your store, but national."

Shapiro said she later went home and spoke with her rabbi who "couldn't believe it."

According to KNBC, at least one other Walgreens store in neighboring Chatsworth was selling the paper.

"We are in the process of removing the product from our stores," Walgreens spokesman Phil Caruso told TheBlaze in an email.

Shapiro told KNBC she's "still very upset" about how "something like this could be on the market."
