Spiders in Bananas Cause Panic

Consi Taylor was horrified to see tiny baby spiders scurrying on the banana she was eating. At first she thought it was a fungus. But only when she took a closer look did she realize to her surprise that it was not a mold but little spiders. And the nightmare was just beginning. When she sent a picture of the insects to a pest control firm she was told to immediately fumigate her house. 

They were venomous Brazilian spiders whose bite could cause among other things paralysis and choking. Taylor has since left her house for a hotel. She is living in the makeshift home away from home while her house is being fumigated. She especially fears that she may have accidentally eaten one such poisonous spider

This woman has been traumatized beyond relief. And it is all thanks to the mismanagement of the workers who check the fruits according to regulations. Sainsbury’s, the super store where she bought the bananas has issued a formal apology. "We're very sorry and have apologised to Mr and Mrs Taylor. We do have rigorous controls on imported products at all stages - from harvesting to transportation - which is why this is so rare," said the supermarket. It is also paying for the fumigation expenses and hotel charges as compensation for the glaring mistake. 

The Brazilian Wandering spiders are the deadliest in the world. The store has said that usually strict screening methods for hygiene and safety exist at the premises. Nevertheless, the top management has sought to redress the wrong. And it has reassured the public that such a blunder won’t occur in the future. Source: Sky News

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
