Save A Lot - Worms in my food, I even recorded the worm moving but couldn't load the video!

186 of 214 Save A Lot reviews

My husband had made me a plate of stir fry which included save a lot brand instant rice.As I was almost done eating I noticed a worm on my plate.

To be sure it was a worm I poured the instant rice in a bowl to look further. Sure enough there was a worm crawling in the bowl. I was so devastated and cannot believe I ate worms. It just doesn't get any worse, at least I hope not.

Also I used to love save a lots yogurt and wouldn't not buy it any where else, than they decided to change it. They changed there coffee too.

Save a lot, when you have a good thing going you should not be so *** to change it to a lower quality.Your stores going down hill fast, you might want to keep what's good, good.

This is called fraud and borderline blackmail.
"Worms in my food, I even recorded the worm moving but couldn't load the video!" ***.
Larve, maggots, worms, WTF ever you call it will surely DIE from being COOKED! It will absolutely perish from being stir-fried.
People like you need to spend some time in jail and learn a few things about cons and the law.

That is not a maggot or a worm. Almost all fly larvae and earth worms require a substantial amount moisture to complete their life cycle. That is the larvae stage of a saw tooth grain beetle. To be quite honest I'm sure its not the first or last time you will consume such a treat. They are found in thousands of grain/rice products we buy every day. I understand you're grossed out over it but believe or not ingesting a few these are not going to harm you physically. In some parts of the world they are part of a routine diet. I know what I'm saying is true. I'm a certified entomologist. If you would like to learn more simply google Saw Tooth Grain Beetle. There are many ways to avoid this if you do your research.

I thought it was an onion slice. But it's a maggot? How gross.

I work at save a lot and you wouldn't believe the health code violations that go on.
