LIVE BLACK WIDOW Spider found In WHOLE FOODS Grapes


 
 

Location: Fairfield, Connecticut
Offence: Whole Foods customer finds LIVE BLACK WIDOW in Organic Grapes purchase
Culprit: Live Black Widow Spider

A Connecticut woman, Nora Weiss, received a shock in December 2012 after she purchased a bag of Sunview Organic Table Grapes from the Fairfield Whole Foods store. When she took the grapes out of the bag to wash them, she discovered a LIVE Black Widow spider!
 
Whole Foods issued a statement saying that the claim could be true since no pesticides are used on organic produce and stressed that the "safety of our shoppers is incredibly important."  
Widow spiders are considered the most venomous spiders in North America. According to National Geographic, a black widow bite can cause muscle aches, nausea, and paralysis of the diaphragm making it difficult to breath.
Weiss received a full refund.

At TIC, we believe it is crucial that any company selling ORGANIC vegetables and fruits MUST be sure to instigate and follow a THOROUGH CLEANING PROCESS to ensure those vegetables are clean and free of dead animals..
