1.0 out of 5 stars Rodent feces, July 17, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Navitas Naturals Organic Raw Chia Seeds, 16-Ounce Pouches (Grocery)
I am totally disgusted. I loved this product up until today. I was getting this auto shipped on subscribe & save monthly. My newly opened bag of chia seeds must now go in the trash. Today during my normal routine I have switched from putting 4 tbs in my green smoothie daily to making chia pudding. I let it sit for 10 minutes, stirred it up, squeezed a half a lemon in to it then began to eat it. I was down to about half then decided to look in the glass while scooping it out when I saw a little black pellet. It stuck out because it was larger and a different color than the chia seeds. I removed it thinking this looks like mouse poop but forced myself not to believe that that's what it was and placed it on a tissue. I took about to more scoops and look down again and I found two more!!! Now I feel sick. I pulled out my phone and looked on the reviews to see if anyone has complained of this and low and behold I see a 1 star review from 2012 with complaints of rodent poop. The worst part is up until two weeks ago I was putting about four tbs daily into my daily smoothies without looking. I do not have mice. This bag was new and had I not decided to eat chia pudding I would have still been eating poop!! I am sickened to think that this company has such poor quality control. I loved this product for all the energy and other benefits I received from taking it daily. If I went more than two days without my chia seeds I would not have as much get up and go. Now I have to find a new brand. Please examine your chia seed from this company closely. I have uploaded a picture that shows the last piece of feces I found before calling amazon. I was given a refund for two bags of chia and I stopped my auto ship immediately. I don't want to even imagine all the mouse poop I have consumed a day. Ughhhhhhh!!!!!!! Does the consumer have any recourse from something like this? I have gone through about 10 bags of these chia seeds. I know this can not be good for my health!

If you look at the USDA specifications you will find that all food can contain a certain amount of mouse poop and insects parts. Effort to remove all foreign object would increase the price of food a 100 fold. You ingest more foreign object then you know including a 100 or more spiders that fall in your mouth while you sleep during your life time. Eat well!!

It does cause me to pause and think if I want to buy this product but as someone else who responded to this complaint, nothing is 100% clean. We are probably not aware of all the gross things that end up in our food.

Don't try to justify turds in food because the goverment allows it - a single rat turd in a bag this size is roughly 200 times the allowed limit (assuming my sources are accurate, and assuming the limit for seeds and grains are generally the same accross the board - it's not a subject I want to research any further).

Interesting that this is not a VERIFIED AMAZON PURCHASE review. I always take these with a grain of salt because there are sites that PAY you to review companies on Amazon.com. Not saying this is one of them, however, Amazon would have replaced this IMMEDIATELY and without microscopic examination, it could have been anything. I don't trust any reviews unless people have actually verified they purchased it from Amazon.com.
