Woman finds black widow spider in her grapes



LINK

quote:

" I would never knowingly put poison into my system," said yoga instructor Nora Weiss, 27, about the pesticides non-organic farmers use to kill spiders and insects. "I'd definitely risk coming face to face with a spider than that.''

The unsuspecting Weiss made the shocking discovery after buying organic grapes imported from Mexico at the high-end Grasmere Avenue grocery.

She took them out of the bag to wash them when the venomous spider - which was still alive - popped out, it's hour-glass shaped red markings clearly visible on its body.

A Whole Foods spokesman in Washington, D.C. said such incidents are rare, but can happen when customers are dealing with organic produce.

"Insects are indigenous to organic produce, it's not sprayed with pesticide so there's nothing to kill the bugs," said Michael Sinatra.

As for the spider, Weiss said her boyfreind, James Boncek, released it in her yard.

"My boyfriend let it go outside,'' Weiss said. "That's how we live. It's a living animal and we have no hard feelings.''



that would not be my reaction

I found one in my store a few weeks ago, pretty cool looking. I did not participate in the catch and release program.

What a tree hugger...letting a black widow live is dangerous. Should've killed it.

I hope it crawls back in and kills them in their sleep.

Ok kidding, but yeah, that was stupid.

It's not news. It's Fark.com.

Which is where the OP lifted the link from.

It's news because the hippy called up the news station because she wanted everyone to know she eats organic food.

And the irony that she went organic because she didn't want poison on her grapes.

Hopefully they had to go outside later in the day, forgetting about the spider, and one of them got bit. "That is how black widow spider lives, no hard feelings."
