Convenience store disputes claim of maggots in sandwich

Posted September 26

— A convenience store chain is challenging a man's claim that he found maggots in a sandwich he ordered from a store in New Jersey.

Chris Garcia tells The Trentonian (http://bit.ly/2xufxRC ) he bought a buffalo chicken cheesesteak hoagie Saturday from a Wawa store in Ewing. He says after taking few bites, he found two maggots moving around the sandwich. Garcia's mother recorded video of maggots crawling on the sandwich wrapper.

A Wawa spokeswoman says its investigation shows the claim is "highly unlikely and probably impossible." She says the 750-store chain inspects its stores daily and holds itself to the "highest standard of quality" in the food it serves.

Garcia says he got a refund after returning the sandwich.

Wawa also has stores in Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia and Florida.
