(Feb. 4, 2016) – You definitely don’t want to see something crawling inside your bag of lettuce, but that’s exactly what happened to an Australian family.
Zoe Perry posted a video of the creepy encounter to Woolworths’ Facebook page with the following message:
Shopping as per usual for Italian Style Salad Mix….get it home….Mum goes to open the packet and we are greeted by….

An arachnophobic family
The post added to a rough day for the chain, which has already recalled popular salad products after 28 adults fell ill in a salmonella outbreak traced to prepackaged lettuce products sold at Woolworths and Coles stores (hence Perry’s comment about “salmonella callbacks”).
Woolworths’ responded promptly to the post:
