The Simpson’s family was right, “you don’t win friends with salad”. A disgruntled Woolies’ customer has posted a video of a huge huntsman spider she found in the Italian style salad mix. Also Woolworths and Coles pre-packaged salads have been recalled due to Salmonella outbreak.
In the post, Zoe Perry said: “Hi Woolworths, 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”
So far Perry’s post has attracted over 42,000 likes, 61,500 shares and 62,000 comments.
A Woolworths’ social media representative responded quickly to Perry’s post on Facebook with:
