Great Value - Larvae in Chicken Noodle Soup

43 of 58 Great Value reviews

Bought a can of family size Great Value chicken noodle soup. Found larvae when attempting to eat. The fine folks at Wal-Mart were contacted but couldn't be burdened with a reply (no inquiry as to lot number, date, etc). I guess you should check your canned goods? I'm not sure they care?

Leeds Walmart, Leeds, AL

I've since filed with the FDA (no response as of yet) and the USDA. Walmart deleted any mention of contaminated food posted on their facebook page. Coincidentally, this did not invoke a response either.

My mother ate a bowl of this soup before I discovered the larvae. I hope no problems arise, but it's disgusting.

Was it a thermophile? Since they can only survive at 122°! Do you even know to what environment thermophile can survive? Don't cheat and Google it.

walmart sucks with looking into issues with it products! I called about a cookie that my family loved. I guess someone told them we can make them cheaper so they went with them the only issue is they are terrible now. I called to let them know (left a message) they did call me back to say they are the same cookie buy them again (I listened) they lied the cookies now sit on the shelf no one buys them before they couldn't keep them on the shelves. You would think the buyer would realize that no one is buying these cookies and go back to the manufacture that made them good but no they just sit and WALMART throws them out. complain in store and I get we have already passed this information on they do not listen to us at the store level either!!

I messed up on that lost comment. I have a confession to make. Mind you, it's not mal-intended or related to what we were previously discussing..

I love you LTCC. From one being to another, I'm wishing to express my doting desire to get into your body (foremost) and then your sole.

I think we should meet in person. We could then sort a scandal in endorsing one of those matchmaking sites, could we nawt?

Wrong again Chipmonk.....not even remotely associated with wally world (admittedly I do shop there - love it!)....but everyone can smell a scammer (that's you). I just come to this sight to point out BS'ers and Whinners (again you).....Honestly, I think you put the so called debris in the soup for your picture...lookin for a huge settlement or lawsuit. Wouldn't it be easier to roll out of your trailer house and go to the local McDonalds and spill some coffe in your lap? P-A-T-H-E-T-I-C :-)

I'm trying to read into your reply. Trying to discern an ulterior motive. hm....

I think I've got it.

You're either complacent or you've climbed some bureaucratic ladder at Wally World. Figuring you owe them something, you're here to defend them. Either way, your advice is as putrid as this soup (ie not needed).

dear chipmonk - I think there is more to your story as you have gone on the defensive; one of the reasons you will not go out of your way, because you know this is bunk. Personally - I think you are a scammer....lookin for a free will not get one. Why would the guilty party offer a solution (which I assume you to mean $$, again your a scammer) when you have not proven your case.....stop cryin wolf and eat your soup.

If you're bent over for Walmart, that's your issue. I still have the soup, but I won't go so far out of my way as to rush to the store for $3. They are responsible for THEIR branded products. That's why you get the refund bud.

I was hoping for an acknowledgement and solution from the guilty party themselves. Also, I aimed to at least report it to the FDA or USDA.

You like larvae soup, I'd assume?

You can't tell anything from your pictures... fyi. I doubt it is whatever type of larvae you speak of.

Why in God's name didn't you put the soup with the larvae in a container and take it back with the receipt. I bet they would have either given you a refund or replaced the soup. However, I feel you are blaming WalMart, when they can't help what happens where ever their products are manufactured.
