Green veggies are some of the best foods you can eat to improve your health, but not when they’re crawling with venomous redback spiders.
Australian supermarket chain Woolworths was forced to pull a certain batch of broccoli after multiple customers found redback spiders hiding out in the produce. The reports started to come in on the company’s Facebook page.
A customer named Dee Nott posted the scary photo you see above, with the caption…
“I just had a nasty surprise – a live redback spider in my broccoli purchased today at your Runaway Bay store. I am lucky it did not bite me as I washed it. I plan to take in the critter (now frozen) and my receipt tomorrow. I thought I should mention it in case there is an infestation.”
And it’s a good thing she did mention it because it appears there was an infestation. Another customer named Maurice Wilson complained that he found a similar spider in his broccoli he purchased from the supermarket chain.
A Woolworths representative told the Brisbane Times the following…
“Supply of this batch of product has been temporarily suspended while we work closely with three of our Queensland suppliers to ensure we are receiving the best-quality produce. We are currently in contact with customers who have brought concerns to our attention.”
This isn’t the first time the supermarket chain has had trouble with spiders. Earlier this year, we shared video of a huge spider crawling inside a package of salad mix that was purchased from the store.
