1. A shocking video has been uploaded to the Woolworths Facebook page showing what appears to be a huge huntsman spider in a bag of lettuce.
2. The video, uploaded yesterday, has been shared over 50,000 times and racked up almost 40,000 likes.
7. To its credit, Woolworths responded quickly to the video, saying it was concerned and would investigate.
8. A spokesperson for Woolworths told BuzzFeed News there was currently an investigation underway.
“Woolworths takes food safety very seriously. We require our suppliers to follow clear quality control guidelines during food processing.”
“Prepackaged lettuce goes through an extensive process before being packaged. Our suppliers wash, blow dry, shake and visually inspect the lettuce.”
“The customer has been contacted and an investigation is currently underway. We immediately sent a food quality expert to the processing facility to see what additional measures can be put in place to minimise the chance of this happening again.”
