all rice, cookies, pasta, cereals, etc. have "acceptable" amounts of bug and mouse particles, as determined "safe" by the good ol' fda.
and yeah, unhatched larvae in those same products is very common. not so much a problem up here in colder climates.
As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.
Well, I don't know about humans, but when I worked in the pet shop, we once had an order of dog food come in that was infested with weevils. The manager sent it back, said weevils make the dogs sick. Don't know if that was true or not, but it seems reasonable~ they're nasty little bugs.
I always keep my white rice (and back when I ate pasta I did the same with it) in a sealed container. That way if you do get a bug hatching incident, you contain the outbreak and just throw out the infected grain.
