Mum finds ‘hundreds’ of weevil beetles inside bag of Tesco pasta

Bournemouth Echo: INFESTATION: Maisie O’Shea and sister Amelia INFESTATION: Maisie O’Shea and sister Amelia

A mother about to cook her children’s dinner was horrified after finding hundreds of black bugs crawling inside a packet of pasta she had just bought.

Hayley O’Shea, 39, began pouring out the fusilli from Tesco for a tuna pasta bake when she saw the infestation of weevil bugs.

The mother-of-two quickly threw the pasta and the bugs in the bin and sealed up the bag that hadn’t been opened before.

She has no idea how the swarm of the beetle-type bug got into the 500g bag.

Mrs O’Shea called Tesco to complain and was as first told someone would come and collect the packet from her home in Bournemouth, Dorset, so they could investigate.

When nobody arrived she emailed the supermarket giant again but was then told she would have to return it to a store.

Mrs O’Shea, an account manager at a marketing company, said she is concerned that other bags of pasta could contain the bugs.

Mrs O’Shea said: “I bought the pasta from the Tesco online shopping service.

“I opened it and tipped some into a pan for my children’s dinner and noticed lots of little black things.

“Initially I thought it might have been something burnt on the bottom of the pan so I drained the pasta under the tap, then I looked closer and saw they were insects.

“I looked at the rest of the packet and it was absolutely crawling with them. There must have been hundreds of the things.

“My two children were horrified and now won’t eat pasta again. I had no idea what they were so I looked it up on the internet and realised they were weevil bugs.

“I contacted Tesco and they said someone would come and collect the pasta but they didn’t turn up, so I emailed them and they told me that it wasn’t their policy to do so.

“They refunded me the money and gave me a 10 pounds compensation voucher but it’s not money I’m after. I am outraged that they didn’t want to find out where these weevils came from, it’s like they don’t care.”

Mrs O’Shea has been refunded the cost of the pasta and given a 10 pounds gift voucher.

A Tesco spokeswoman said: “If a customer finds something in their food that they think shouldn’t be there, we would ask them to return it to store as soon as possible so we can conduct a thorough investigation.”

Oh for the love of God, how does this story rate publication? A bag of pasta with bugs. In other news, the sky is blue; water, wet.

The woman has already been suitably compensated by Tesco. What, pray tell, is the point in publishing a posed photograph of two little girls who have obviously been coached to look "horrified"?

What would compel someone to contact the Echo over something like this? If you want the convenience of being able to buy cheap, mass produced, pre-packaged food, accept that things like this may happen. Otherwise make the dam pasta yourself!

Also nice touch including the kids in the photo. Not sure how they are relevant and why they have to be involved at such a young age. Let's just hope that despite their mum they manage to grow up normal.

Father of three, Western Sunset (aged 59) from Wimborne, Dorset made some carbonara earlier this week for tea. He heated the water in a large saucepan. When it was boiling he gently added the pasta. Because he did this very carefully, he avoided scalding himself on the hot liquid.

Setting the timer, to ensure that the pasta cooked for the correct length of time, he then grated some cheese. He was again careful not to hurt his fingers on the very sharp metal grater. Some butter was also taken out of the fridge, along with three eggs. To his great relief, Mr Sunset noticed that the eggs were not cracked or past their "best by" date.

A frying pan was next taken out of the cupboard and some olive oil carefully poured into it. The pan was then heated and some bacon cut into strips. A sharp knife was used, but no fingers were injured in undertaking this hazardous task. The bacon was fried until crispy brown. Dorset Fire & Rescue were not required to attend as Mr Sunset had sucessfully fried bacon before without mishap.

The bacon, cheese, butter and eggs were then added to the pan of drained pasta. After stirring, the meal was served and enjoyed by the family.

Weevils are not raised in factory conditions, are virtually fat free, haven't been treated with growth hormones and are free range. Providing you kill each of them humanely before cooking (I read them my company's health and safety policy) they are the ideal meal.

Sautee them with some onions, basil and peppers, season to taste and serve with the cooked pasta. They taste just like chicken.

What was the date on the packet. Flour product can be prone to weevil infestation one of the items where use by date needs to be observed
Flour doesn't carry a use by date it has a best before date. Use by dates are for use on products that could make you very poorly past that date e.g. meat, fish, etc. Best before dates are for products that will be at their best before that date but are perfectly safe to eat after that date and are unlikely to make you unwell although the product may not be as tasty (aka at it's best). Flour is perfectly safe to eat after it's best before date as long as you use your common sense; if you can see weevils don't eat it.

The perpetual myth that all food suddenly becomes unedible after a certain date is part of what contributes to such high levels of food waste in this country. Even foods such as yoghurts or cheese which carry a use by date can be fine to eat a few days after the date on the pack, just use your senses to check it's ok first.

This is no way the same as horse meat in the lasagne. In fact, in all the years I've shopped at Tesco I've never once had a complaint about the standard of their food. If I did, I'd simply have the pasta exchanged for a less infested packet and be done with it.

As far as saying that it's like Tesco don't care, I would point out that unless it's a Tesco's Own branded item then Tesco can only refer the matter back to the company making the product in question. Otherwise It's like buying some Birdseye fish fingers which are green inside, then saying that it's the Co-Op's responsibility to quality check every fish finger for this sort of thing...

I assume Mrs O'Shea left her contact details with the Echo, so a personal claims law firm can get in touch...
