Trader Joe' s food - been finding bugs and more in food
Just thought I'd see if others are having this problem. For weeks or more my wife has reported finding bugs in nuts, flour, granola bars, etc. This evening she made their pasta and everyone noticed something like crunchy sand in in. Anyone else?

I stopped buying their ground beef. Almost broke a tooth a few too many times from bone fragments left in the meat.

It just happens. Everything you buy from jars of peanutbutter to cans of soup is allowed a degree of "other" substances.

I was at frys some time ago. I like to buy the sushi sometimes. It's the handmade type that is made inhouse. I got it home and opened it and there within the white stick rice was a black beatle bug. I picked out the bug and ate my sushi.

I shop at Trader Joes. They have some of the finest food substances offered. This often comes with more apperent violations that are not as well hidden else where.

Um chances are if you have some bugs that hitchhiked from a dirty store into your pantry, they're gonna get into everything.

We thought about that but then my wife checked food immediately after buying it. The latest thing is the sand in the pasta. I would expect that during WW2 in Russia, and will expect it during WW3...oh, that's it...

I bought 75 of those Belgium 17.6oz/500g Dark choc bars for my prep underground shelter. Temps keep at 55 and all vacuum sealed. I wonder how long bugs or eggs will live without oxygen, light?

That's a tricky one.

Sometimes the produce that attracts bugs/mice/whatnot is apparently the most healthy (untreated).

At home, we've had a bunch of home grown and a box of store bought apples in the cellar. Turned out some mice came in. The nice looking store bought apples were left untouched, while ugly spotty wrinkled home grown apples got to be eaten. Made me think.

Re: Trader Joe' s food - been finding bugs and more in food
I made TJ's penne pasta this weekend - a bag I purchased just three days before, and it was very crunchy like eating sand. I inspected a bunch of them after I cooked them and there were no bugs or maggots in the pasta, but rather it was like something like bugs or sand had been ground into the pasta in the processing - every piece was super gritty, which means either a lot of sand or a lot of bugs - we had to throw the whole bag away. It wasn't bugs from our cupboards - it was in the pasta dough- very weird.

My mother who is 83 and should know, bought a bag of rice. Took it home and saw those tiny bugs you get in rice. She returned it to the store. They gave her her money back. Then she saw them put it right back on the shelf

I have noticed the same sandy texture in the pasta, hence me finding this site. I have made it twice and thrown it out twice. Have you made contact with Trader Joes to see what is going on?

Trader Joe's orders recall of peanut butter

The Trader Joe’s grocery chain has voluntarily ordered the recall of its Creamy Salted Valencia Peanut Butter at its stores nationwide because of potential salmonella contamination.

“If you purchased this product, please do not eat it,” the Monrovia-based company said in a prepared statement. “We encourage you to return the product to any Trader Joe's for a full refund or dispose of it.”

I have had an increasing bug problem IN all food from health food stores and regular stores for two years now. I always immediately put items like grains, dried fruit etc, if not in secure heavy plastic already, into old empty big peanut butter jars and the like, to keep the bugs IN so they don't spread. I just had to roast some pure 100% cornmeal to kill them.

When you NEVER find any bugs then you should worry. They won't even eat GM food or food with toxins. Not good enough for them, not good enough fpr me.
