Little black bugs were found in rice that was being served to elementary students at a school in New York last week. A student pointed it out to a school worker, and the hot food line was shut down. Many students had eaten the rice, and from the sounds of it, a lot of parents are upset. The school disposed of the bag of rice, and are taking extra precaution to make sure the problem is resolved.
A lot of times dry, unprepared foods like rice, noodles, or even dog food can attract different types of insects. My parents actually had an issue last month, they bought bird seed for their bird feeder, and the large bag of seed came with moths! It’s always a good idea to take a look at pantry items that have been sitting unused for an extended period of time. And if you notice anything suspicious, just throw it out!
