Woman finds huge arachnid crawling around in salad

A shopper in Australia found a spider in her bag of Italian Style Salad, but it wasn't just any tiny spider, it was a huge, hairy arachnid.

The woman and her daughter took video of the spider crawling around in the bag. "It's reanimating," a woman is heard saying on the video. "Oh my God."

The video was posted to the Facebook page of Woolworths Supermarket chain with a message by Zoe Perry. "Shopping as per usual for Italian Style Salad Mix....get it home....Mum goes to open the packet and we are greeted by...." wrote Perry.

She signed the post, "Kind regards, An arachnophobic family."

Woolworths responded to the post on their page. "We're very concerned about this Zoe, and take incidents like this very seriously," the store responded. They also asked for her phone number so they could follow up "ASAP."
