Additional Notes

Complaint: On 06/**/2015, I opened a bag of frozen peas to cook and alas to my suprise I found a bug which i can describe as a big greenish/black fly in it. I have the pictures, the lot number on the bag, exp date and the whole bag itself intact. I would like not just Goya but the whole world to see this. As a customer who paid for this food, I am entitled share my experience albeit a disgusting one with all. It pains me to think what If I had not paid attention and cooked with it and god forbid anyone in my family had fallen ill???? Is this the regulation I am getting on my food???? Thank You Sincerely A troubled Customer

Desired Settlement: I would like a call from the higher management at Goya, FDA or any other authority that regulates these products. I will share my personal experience on social platforms as well.
