Woman Finds A Live Tarantula In Her ‘Italian Salad Mix’



One poor Aussie woman got a pretty nasty surprise when she brought her food shopping home earlier this week, only to find a large huntsman spider crawling around in the salad. 

Writing on Woolworth’s (where the salad was bought) Facebook, she posted a video of the spider, along with this message:

“Shopping as per usual for Italian Style Salad Mix….get it home….Mum goes to open the packet and we are greeted by….

Is this what’s actually behind the “salmonella” callbacks?

Kind Regards,

An arachnophobic family.”

Woolworth’s are having enough problems as it is at the moment – having had to recall 25 different varieties of salad after a suspected salmonella callback.

We think we’d take salmonella over the spider though… You can watch the footage here:
