Releasing footage of the gross find, Marco writes: ‘Thank you so much for the delicious chocolate muffins Woolworths. I was eating one and to my horror, I found a live maggot!! And the expired date still hasn’t passed.’
Not surprisingly, Woolworths were just as horrified by the shocking video, which shows the live maggot working its way through the muffin. Ewww!
Replying to Marco’s post, a Woolies spokesperson wrote: ‘Oh no! We're so sorry to see you've found a live maggot in the muffins, Marco. We take product quality seriously so we're just as concerned to see this. We understand how this can be quite frustrating and certainly would like to bring this to the attention of our Product Team for their awareness and further investigation.’
