On my way home from work earlier in the week, I stopped off at a grocery store that I frequent on rare occasions while I am within the area.
I purchased a box of instant Minute brown rice.
I have been a rice eater since childhood, always loved me some rice- whether yellow rice, red rice, beans and rice, peas and rice, rice pilaf or plain rice.
I cut out eating white rice unless colored with the benefits of Turmeric two years ago.
I have been eating mainly brown rice when I get the taste for it mixed in with lentils or various type of beans that I prepare.
When I got home later in the evening to pour the rice into a pot to boil an object of some sort fell out through the box along with the rice.
It was dark brown in color, had a sharp point on one side and broke in half like some dirty piece of matter possibly found in ground or soil.
Whatever the article was it was a turn off to me.
I immediately poured the contents of the rice out of my pot into the garbage. I took a photo of the Minute rice box proof of purchase, date, and time stamp.
Afterwards, I wrapped the box of remaining rice in a plastic bag and placed it inside the trash.
The next day I phoned up the company that manufactures the rice and was disappointed at the representative’s way of operating, so I hung up on her.
The representative wanted me to send a picture of what I found inside the box. I explained how it broke up and as I did not know what it was, I quickly discarded it
I proceeded to fill out a contact form located on the Minute Rice website. Now I am waiting to see if I will receive a response from them.
