Against my better judgement, I purchased a box of Pepperidge Farm Mac & Cheese, Butter Parmesan variety, from the Walmart in Hiram, GA on Tuesday, November 5th, 2013. The box had little brown worms in it. I called Pepperidge Farm and I should be receiving a bag in 7-10 days to ship the product back to them in. I'm not sure how long it'll take to get to their offices or when they'll begin testing it, but if the whole lot is infected and the product ends up being recalled, it won't take place in the next few weeks anyway. I hate the thought of someone's children unknowingly consuming bug parts, so if you could take a second and share this, that'd be great. Sell date on the box is 05/16/2014. Lot# under the date is PG09P1363. Number under bar code on bottom of box is 0 14100 04247 1

Yucky! You need to contact Walmart too and they should pull them off the shelves and check a few boxes.

I mean, I understand it's gross and just really disturbs you when you are ready to make your kids a meal, but we eat animals all the time. And I think the average human eats about 8 spiders a year. It's good protein! :) I'm not saying knowingly eat this, because obviously they have a problem with their product, but even peanut butter has mouse poop, but it's regulated to only be a small amount.

I work with the food industry, you don't want to know some of the stories I've heard.

Right? Gross indeed but really not going to kill anyone.

I called Walmart before Pepperidge Farm. The lady I spoke with said she'd be sure to relay the info. We'll see what happens...

They were small and light brown with dark brown stripes. It almost looked like some had shed skins... there were some skins with no apparent worm inside. ??

Sounds like gypsy moths.  They get into boxes especially products made of flour and grains.  It would not be the company's fault just something that happens.

I'm not freaking out. Just trying to spread the word. If someone else found something like this, I'd want to know. That's all :)
