Ouch... that sounds like a lousy excuse of an answer if I ever heard one. Why?... because nobody uses pesticides in a packing plant! I bet they use that exact same answer for any screw up.

Well yesterday I got a letter from Kellogg's and 3 coupons each worth up to $5 on any kellogg product. Now I have to go on Kellogg's website to see what I can squander them on. (hmmmm big box of Eggo waffles!!)

Oh that is so gross!!

Ignorance is bliss I think!

My mom got through half a bowl of rasin bran once (she didn't have her glasses on) and then noticed that her meal was moving...hundreds of tiny bugs. AHH!!

Then I opened a fresh pack of Tender Vittles for one of my cats about 10 years ago and the cat looked back and forth from the bowl to me a few times like "what are you feeding me!!" and yes tons of tiny bugs. It was so gross!

I remember buying a cookie from a fresh cookie place and it had a huge wad of plastic in it that I bit into - I went back to the store and they accused me of putting it in there and just trying to scam them!

My mom did have a mealworms in her mac and cheese once. She said it was an old box. She was pregnant with me at the time and mac and cheese was her thing. No wonder I loooooove it so much!

argh!

*darts a suspicious glance at her half eaten pack of sunmaid raisins*


Dan loves liver stew - I'm not a fan but we were cooking it one night because he likes it. He cut into the thing, and I heard him man scream. There was a massive puss filled cyst in the middle of the cow liver. I hid on the balcony until he had disposed of it.

Ugh, that sucks. I'm sorry you got accused like that.

But as an ex-seller of cookies for a big company, I can guarantee you that some people did try to put one over on me several times about things like that. Of course, whenever I was helping bake, I made darn sure there weren't objects in the dough, and watched to see when that batch went out. So usually I could catch them. I don't think that a scummy old penny is going to be in a cookie I made if I didn't even have any change on me that day to go rooting around in my pockets for (which we weren't allowed to do while baking in the first place!), for pity's sake.

One time the person doing the cookies didn't notice they'd a piece of rubber glove break off and get baked in, though, and by the time they did it was too late to start pulling apart the baked goods and checking. The cookie with it inside is the one I got free for snack later, though, so we were all good.

Anyway. I don't eat raisins anymore because there was a bug in my box of them once and I nearly ate the bug, after having eaten half the box. (Plus raisins are nasty anyway so I'm not missing much.) I got a jar of peanut butter only to find it filled with nasty dead black insects. I've drunk an entire glass of chocolate milk while sleepy only to suddely notice that the powder mix bin was filled with horrible little bugs, and immediately been sick after. The same for finishing a half bowl of brand-new cereal before discovering them, many many times. I bought a package of bacon once and found the bacon inside to be weird and scummy looking, and smelling bad.

I better hush before I remember the worse things. >.<

I too have experienced the bug in the food horrors.

Once, I found living bug larvae (probably fly) on top of a Cadbury bar that had a slip over the wrapper and wasn't completely sealed. It came from a small corner store, so I complained to the owner and left. I doubt it was the company's fault.

Another time I found some dead small mealworms or something like it inside a macaroni and cheese box, again bought at a small shop.

After hearing spider in the coke can story, I'll definitely be drinking from glasses from now on. Yuck!

Now, I only buy items that I thoroughly inspect first (I probably look like a nut at the supermarket but I don't care), and if I buy from a corner store, I ask how long the item has been sitting there (in the case of dry goods, not stuff that goes regularly) and check it at home. I won't buy anything not completely sealed. Even if it is sealed, I check through it before I eat it. I'm pretty obsessive that way. I think I must have found something in my food a long time ago that makes me do that.

Thanks, everyone. This thread should help my diet.

I smashed a head of lettuce once and removed the core and about a dozen or so earwigs came scurrying out.

I think I should have eaten dinner before reading this thread!

You can bet your bottom dollar that I'm going to carefully check my food tonight before I take a single bite!

That's one thing I don't like about growing my own broccoli!!!
I don't use pesticides so when I'm cutting it up I have to watch for the green cabbage looper "worms" and remove fthem before blanching.
I remember one yr they were alot of them and even though the broccoli was thoroughly looked at before blanching I had a hard time eating any of it through the winter months.
