SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — A mans claims he made a gross discovery at a San Francisco Lucky’s supermarket, located at Fulton and Masonic in San Francisco.

A customer tells local media that earlier Wednesday, he allegedly found a live cockroach inside a box of prepackaged sushi.

Mark Wolfe and his friend spotted a bug in their sushi.

“It was sickening,” Wolfe said.

The discovery was found in one of two prepackaged boxes of sushi Wolfe purchased just before 11 a.m.

Wolfe said buying sushi at the Lucky’s supermarket on Fulton Street is nothing new for him.

“I always get sushi from this store….I’ve never had a problem like this before,” Wolfe said.

That all changed when after Wolfe and his friend scarfed down the first box. Wolfe saw what he said appeared to be a dead bug on a piece of sushi and snapped photos of it.

“I immediately closed it up — was pretty grossed out. Then, i noticed about a minute later when i was looking for the receipt that the cockroach had disappeared,” Wolfe said. “Shortly thereafter, I saw it crawling on the sushi.”

Wolfe said the store supervisor was also grossed out. Though, he said she refused to pull the remaining sushi in the store off the shelves.

A company spokesperson has since issued a statement saying:

Food safety is our top priority at Lucky’s. We have launched a full investigation into this situation and have pulled all of the sushi provided by this vendor off the shelves of the nine stores they supply.

Wolfe said he would never shop at the store again.
