I can't even imagine why you are paying $25.00 per bag for rice. How big is this bag and what kind of rice is $25.00 per bag????
Let's not question about cost. It may be a very big bag and there are a lot of different rice out there. Peoples' budgets are very different in here.
I think it should be tossed out. Do you have the original receipt? If so, return the bag to the store and find a better one without bugs. But certainly don't use it with bugs in it.
I once bought a bag of cat food and when I got home to open it, it was full of bugs. I went back to the store and got my money back and bought another bag at a different store.
Yes, the cat food is one of the more expensive kinds but it soothes their tummies and cuts way down on hairballs. I hope you can replace that bag of rice with a clean bag. Yuck.
