A woman in Canada, was shocked to find pasta inside a bottle of vitamin she bought at a reputable drug retailer.

Anna Bauer-Ross of Toronto, said that she could not figure out why cheap pasta was inside her bottle of Greens+ she bought at the Shoppers Drug Mart located at 292 Dupont Street.

She bought the bottle of Greens+ on Tuesday, for $50.81.

When she got home, she removed the seal of the vitamin bottle, and was shocked to see it was filled with pasta. At first, she thought someone played a joke on her.

She went back the Shoppers Drug Mart, where she was offered a refund or a replacement bottle.

Bauer-Ross said that she accepted the offer for a replacement bottle on the condition that she could open it in the store for inspection.

The manager agreed. When Bauer-Ross opened the bottle, she was shocked to find it was filled with pasta as well. The manager opened two additional bottles, and found that they were filled with pasta too.

All bottles appeared to be properly sealed.

Genuine Health, the company to produces the Green+ vitamins, said that someone tampered with the bottles after it was shipped to the stores.

The company suspects that someone wanted to get the vitamins for free and replaced them with pasta before returning the bottle to the store for a refund.

The company said that the pasta does not pose a threat to consumers, and refused to recall the Green+ bottles, saying that this appears to be an isolated incident.

Shoppers Drug Mart is also allowing the Green+ bottles to remain on the shelves of its stores.
