Archelle, known as @oatsfinessinn on TikTok, skyrocketed to social media stardom with a 43-second video detailing an unexpected encounter during her seafood preparation. Her tale began with the purchase of 10 pounds of crawfish from the Shrimp Dock, intending to whip up a homemade feast. However, her culinary plans took an eerie turn when she stumbled upon what appeared to be "spiders" intermingled with the crawfish.

In the video, viewers watch as Archelle delicately extracts the eight-legged creatures from the crawfish pot and puts them on a plate. Her caption read: "Here I am, trying to figure out if these are spiders in my crawfish?"

In a subsequent video, captioned "Yes, they were water spiders! Help me convince this company to send a refund to CashApp," the woman recounted her discovery and her subsequent exchange with the Shrimp Dock manager regarding her dissatisfaction.

Despite her plea for a refund upon uncovering the unsettling addition to her meal, the manager offered only a $50 store credit, citing the occasional presence of extraneous bugs in seafood as an unfortunate reality.

She posted a screenshot of her conversation with the manager. "Seeing this was very unappetizing for us. Unfortunately, we didn't eat the rest after finding this. Can we get a refund?" However, the manager declined her request for a full refund, saying, "I can't offer you a full refund. I'm sorry that you found extra bugs among your crawfish, but it does happen."

TikTok viewers, however, remained divided. "I can't believe you didn't get your money back, that's crazy. Shouldn't the spiders be a food safety violation?" remarked one individual in shock.

Others defended the eatery, saying that the presence of spiders wasn't a big deal. "It seems like they offered you more than half your money back as store credit, which was generous. Honestly, the spiders just show how fresh the crawfish are, and they're harmless," wrote one user.

People should provide as much information as they can when reporting food safety breaches to any agency or group. This information should include purchase receipts, any conversations with the seller, and images or videos of the contaminated food. The result may vary depending on the jurisdiction and the seriousness of the infraction, but people can usually anticipate that authorities will look into the matter and take the necessary steps to address the problem, which may include warnings, fines, or even legal penalties for serious violations.

1. FDA or USDA Websites: The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) provide comprehensive information on consumer rights and food safety laws. Their websites offer instructions on how to report issues with food safety as well as actions that customers can take.

2. Consumer Protection Organizations: The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) in the US and the Citizens Advice Bureau in the UK are two examples of the many nations that have established consumer protection organizations. These organizations respond to customer complaints and offer support when there are violations involving food safety.

3. Local Health Departments: Food safety breaches can be immediately addressed to mitigate health risks by contacting local environmental health authorities or health departments. They can look into complaints and prosecute those who violate the law.
