A woman was shocked when she recently found a worm inside of her fiance’s Little Debbie Cosmic Brownie.
Jessica O’Hern posted a photo of the tainted brownie of Facebook.
“So my fiancé just grabbed a pack of the Cosmic Brownies out the box. Then he opened the packet and found a worm of some sort on one side of the brownie!” she wrote. “Then, another worm started coming out the middle of the brownie… WILL NOT be eating these anymore.”
The post quickly vent viral and has been shared 380,000 times since it was posted.
Little Debbie refused to take responsibility for the worm and said the worm appeared after the manufacturing process.
“These insects are grain attacking insects and they attack the product AFTER manufacture,” the company said in a statement. “Our production process and the high heat involved in baking makes it impossible for this to occur.”
Mike Gloekler, a spokesman for the company, also said it was impossible for something like this to occur.
“Time-wise, it’s just impossible for anything to come from us,” Gloekler said. “We bake brownies the same way you would at home.”
“Pantry moths could come from the store, but more than likely it’s their home,” he continued. “Typically what winds up coming into your house with eggs or larvae is pet food, but they’ll eat anything grain-based.”
