Barilla Pasta Complaint - Bugs in Barilla Pasta!
BANNOCKBURN, ILLINOIS -- Today (11-1-2011) we opened a box of Barilla whole grain rotini and discovered the pasta was full of wiggling, white insect larva. The box is marked by Barilla as "best if used by" July 2012. THIS SHOULD NOT HAPPEN TO A PRODUCT WITH A "BEST USED BY" NINE MONTHS IN THE FUTURE! Unfortunately we stocked up when ShopRite put the Barilla pasta on sale and we now have two bags full of Barilla's bug-infested pasta. When we called Barilla's 1-800-922-7455 product question line, we got a recorded message saying the number was not in service. We were directed to call another number which was disconnected. LOUSY QUALITY. LOUSY SERVICE. We have written Barilla via the Internet requesting a refund and will contact ShopRite. This is a serious, disgusting quality control issue and possibly a public safety issue; we hope Barilla will make good on this defective product.
