Not resolved

I poured Barilla pasta into a pot of water tonight and saw something floating on top. When I scooped it out, I realized it was a bug.

I immediately looked back into the pot and saw MULTIPLE bugs floating in the water. I then checked the empty box and found LIVE bugs crawling inside! I threw out every Barilla brand product I had in my home - pasta, sauce, everything. It was Mezze Pasta n.369.

The expiration date was October 2019 and I JUST purchased it recently.

I am absolutely disgusted and I will NEVER purchase this brand again. I told all of my family and friends, and I plan on making this known on social media.

Product or Service Mentioned: Barilla Mezze Penne Pasta.

Reason of review: Bad quality.

Preferred solution: Let the company propose a solution.

I didn't like: Live bugs in my pasta, Bugs in my pasta.

The same thing JUST happened to me today. I was layering my lasagna and to my horror, I saw bugs and creepy crawlies on the pasta. I was horrified!!!


I have the same thing last night. I bought I from the local grocery store here in Dubai.

Open the box put it straight to boiling water. Then I've got hundreds of bugs.

My name is Dave Hughes from Chatham Illinois, and I also bought the Barilla Pasta and the bugs took over my small trailer home kitchen before I realized I was eating worms. I called the customer service number and they tell me that I must of had them already and to clean my home and I said hey I eat the worms what you going to do and they say that they send some more pasta and say with or without worms.
