An Australian woman and her mother found a spider in a package of salad mix after purchasing it from a local supermarket on Thursday.
Zoe Perry shared video of the live spider moving around in the bag of Italian style salad mix to supermarket chain Woolworths Facebook page.
“Shopping as per usual for Italian Style Salad Mix…get it home…mum goes to open the packet and we are greeted by…” Perry wrote on Facebook alluding to the spider’s presence. “Is this what’s actually behind the ‘salmonella’ callbacks?”
The supermarket responded to Perry’s post and encouraged her to contact them to follow up on the issue. Earlier on Thursday Woolworths ordered a recall on four of its packaged salad brands after the products were linked to 28 cases of salmonella.
