Black Widows in Grapes Cause Panic Among Consumers

The discovery of Black Widow spiders in grapes caused a supermarket in Milwaukee, Wisconsin to clear its aisles of all the suspected goods. These included grapes of red, green and yellow hues. The company that manufactures the packaged grapes has promised that it will look into the matter and get rid of the poisonous nuisance. 

The Aldi supermarket furthermore apologized for any inconvenience this blunder may have caused. "At Aldi, we are committed to providing high quality products. We sincerely regret any inconvenience or concern this situation may have caused," the apology statement read.

It all started when Yvonne Duckhorn, a customer saw that the mold she had suspected in the pack of grapes was actually a Black Widow spider. And she had her daughter along with her who was barely 4-years old. A very great tragedy had been averted due to Yvonne’s quick visual reflexes.  

Duckhorn said, "I saw the legs moving frantically. I've seen bugs on fruit before, and I thought, 'That is a very big spider.' Nothing I'd ever seen before."

The supermarket withdrew all samples of grapes after the incident. Earlier on there were stories of Brazilian wandering spiders in bananas. A couple had to flee its home environment thanks to several such spiders crawling out of a bunch of bananas purchased at a supermarket. 

This time it is Black Widow spiders which are a species whose bite may be fatal to human beings. Supermarkets and superstores ought to be more careful in their screening procedures. Otherwise the public will simply lose all trust in them and head out for greener or rather safer pastures.
