I found a bug in my Anutra

I purchased a can of Anutra Whole Salvia Hispanica Seed and when I dumped it into my countertop container, I discovered bugs in it! I have been eating this for awhile and almost got sick!!!! Has anything been done about this?

  • Dear Cody: You found worms because Anutra has been sitting on the shelf for an exorbitant amount of time. The owner of Anutra, Angelo Morini was involved in a new business venture with a company called Lifemax whose product is now called Mila - The Miracle Seed. They are now suing each other. Morini was not manufacturing Anutra during this period so you quite likely purchased dated product. If you are seeking the highest quality type of Salvia hispanica L. or chia than you should look for Salba. There are many other chia companies now marketing product but one should do their due diligence in deciding where to purchase.

    There is a Cody who is also a Lifemax distributor. Are Mila distributors putting up false complaints about competing products?

    Probably. I've seen the inside of the Lifemax structure, and they are more interested in signing up "distributors" than selling their "Miracle food". Chia may be healthy, but that company is not.

  • I’m confident
    I have been taking Anutra for 3 years and it has done wonders to my energy and I feel 100 great. The founder, Angelo Morini is a health food expert who created Veggie Slices among other products. The bug might have been a fluke and I am certain has been taken care of. The Weirs began their business on the knowledge of Mr. Morini whose is suing them for breech of contract along with 150 other disatisfied real estate hopefuls who were also lied to by the Weirs. Give Anutra another try; I am sure you will not be dissapointed.

  • I appreciate the info, I spoke with a Whole Foods rep and they said it had been taken care of, good to know! Sorry for creating conflict, it was not my intent, as this is a Whole Foods blog, and I have no idea what is being discussed here; just glad the bugs are gone!

  • I’m am disappointed at this posters motives.
    TOTALLY UNTRUE!!!!

    I have been on the product for years and NEVER had an issue. This is a great product and should not be judged by one posters false statements.

  • I just recvd my Anutra (ordered thru Ebay). When I opened the container it gave alittle pop and on the inside top of the rim there were webs (I still have the napkin with the webs on it to prove it). Also, there was a small greyish/beige bug with wings, which literally fell apart when I tried to spoon it out. I am not a distributor, just a 52 year old women trying to get her energy/health back. I also have no idea who any of these people are or what is going on about some law suit. But I know what I SAW/HAVE as proof and I WILL order Anutra again. I'm guessing I recvd and OLD batch. I do believe this product is good and can't wait to try a NEW batch.

  • Bobby I did sent an email to the person I bought Anutra from. I can easily give the name, but I do not want to give him a bad name. If you want it just email me at survey48@hotmail.com and I will give it to you. It is not more BS from Lifemx. I do not work for Lifemax. I am just a housewife trying to get something to improve her health.

  • Oh....and by the way he does have bad feedback, one within the past month and 12 within the past 6 month. But he is also is a power seller, so the 12 bad feedbacks don't mean much. I will probably order from him again as long as he does take back this bad container and give me a new one for free.

  • I didn't give him negative feedback yet. If you know anything about Ebay you send them an email first to try to fix the situation so you don't give them a bad name. That is what I did. And yes, that is the Ebay seller. Apparently, you don't know much about giving a second chance to someone. Unfortunately, stuff happens and I recd a bad/old batch and I am willing to give the seller/product a second chance. It sounds like you WORK FOR ANUTRA, and after reading your comments I don't think I want to purchase Anutra. The founder, Angelo Morini can now thank you for losing business for him.
    • You don't want to give him ("him" not being a "him" but a company) negative feedback but you'll leave a comment here? Doesn't make sense. Again, you can't leave negative feedback unless you've purchased. You didn't purchase it. You said "him" because a) you didn't think anyone would go look and b) you didn't know there is only one seller - an online company.

      And if the story about giving a second chance were true, you wouldn't have posted about it ANYWHERE.

      I don't work for Anutra and don't know Angelo Morini.

  • As I was typing I was realizing the type of person you are, rude and insensitive, and if that is the type of person that works for Anutra, then it doesn't say much for the company. It sounds like you're just as bad as the people you were talking about, Jim and Sherri Wear. You really need to learn more about customer service. Like I said in one of my previous posts I have the proof. I didn't throw away the webs or bug, so you don't have to believe me.

  • I said him because there has to be a him or her to own a company. I left feedback here because this is a CUSTOMER SUPPORT COMMUNITY and people need to know about products purchased. Be it bad or good! And if you go back and look at his feedback it is there. I DID give him feedback but NOT BAD feedback because he....oh sorry... the COMPANY immediately apologized and sent me a free one. This time it was packaged properly and in good condition. Why should he receive bad feedback when the product he is selling is poor. I do believe you don't know Angelo Morini, but I don't believe you don't work for Anutra. You'll never admit that because you already gave them..oh again I'm sorry...the COMPANY Anutra a BAD NAME. And most of all I STILL HAVE THE PROOF... THE WEBS AND BUG. It funny how you don't mention that. You are saying anything possible to rectify your rudeness and insensitivity.

  • Anutra is produced with much pride and care , exceeding industry standards. When a product problem of any kind happens, our quality control experts take immediate action. When Whole Foods said they had a contamination problem, I personally visited the store in Orlando,Florida that same day of the complaint,I live in Orlando, and the problem with alleged insects was not found in their inventory. Anutra LLC is certain that when Anutra products leave our plant, they are perfectly sound,but when you have freight companies,warehouses,stores,customers and at times "competition sabotage",something can go wrong. Anutra is double tamper proof with an inner disc seal and a outer band seal that makes it very difficult for the average person to tamper with the package,so our experts all wonder how ,if true ,this could ever happen. There have been only three complaints in over five years of selling thousands of canisters of Anutra with no health consequences of any kind. Anutra is 100% unconditionally guaranteed. I hope this information is published in the proper channels to answer any questions concerning Anutra products and I would like to thank all the loyal Anutra customers for their business,please watch for many new and exciting products from Anutra LLC. Thank you!
    Angelo Morini
    Chairman/CEO

  • If your paying $20 or more for chia, you're all getting ripped off. I learned about chia in a heath newsletter a year ago and they recommended the Salba Brand. I bought it at Swanson Vitamins and apid about $25 for a pound. Then they(Swanson) came out with their own brand and it sells for $11.50 per 1 pound. No bugs, cobwebs and no big fights/lawsuits with them. A few weeks ago a loan broker I know told me about LifeMax selling chia seed for $55 a pound. I told him only idiots would pay that much but I guess there are a lot of them out there.

  • i have a question regarding the process for each company - Anutra, Lifemax and Salba. How do you process those raw CHIA SEEDS? From the plantation to the packaging. This will seperate the boys from the real men.
