Woman Finds Two Deadly Black Widow Spiders in Grapes Bought From Supermarket

Metro

24 November 2013

A woman has found two black widow spiders in a bunch of grapes bought from a supermarket, just weeks after another shopper found the deadly arachnid in produce purchased from an Aldi store.

Yvonne Whalen spotted the first spider when she was washing the grapes at her home in Pennsylvania, US.

She had bought the fruit from a Giant Food Stores in the area.

‘I saw the spider come up,’ she told the York Daily Record.

‘I quickly dropped the colander and screamed. My first thought was to use a hose and force it down the drain into the garbage disposal.’

Whalen’s encounter with the poisonous creepy crawly didn’t end there as she spotted a second one in the same bunch of grapes, but luckily for her it was already dead.

An expert later confirmed the two spiders were black widows.

Giant Food Stores promised to ‘diligently inspect’ its selection of fresh produce for signs of dangerous insects.

Earlier in the month another woman also found one of the deadly arachnids in her grapes but this time they were purchased from an Aldi store in Wisconsin.

‘I’ve seen bugs on fruit before, and I thought, ‘That is a very big spider.’ Nothing I’d ever seen before,’ Yvonne Duckhorn told a local newspaper after making the gruesome discovery.

A bite from a black widow spider can kill a small child and paralyse an adult.

Another reason to thoroughly wash fruit.

Perhaps those two poor black widows were the less poisonous thing in the grape, with all those Anti-Fungal, Anti-Bacterial, Anti-Parasitic, Anti Shit stuff that they spray on it on daily basis, the grape itself has to be the most poisonous thing in the basket, most likely the spiders were poisoned themselves, go figure...

One of them did commit suicide...or was he murdered?

We need to study roaches! There is something that makes them live forever and keep adapting.
