Dulewicz also said that product safety is Lidl’s priority and quality control is maintained at every stage of the supply chain.

Meanwhile, some netizens doubted Gaudaniec’s post and questioned how a spider could survive in a sealed jar with liquid marinate.

Social media user ‘Kasia Modzelewska’ commented: “It seems to me that the jar had been opened previously…”

‘Monika Lukaszczyk’ said: “Come on, it only shows that there are no chemical substances in the jar. From now on, they are my favourite olives!”

‘Bozena Zieba’ wrote: “How is it possible that a spider could live in a sealed jar in liquid for so long?”

Gaudaniec defended herself by saying: “The jar was bought yesterday and opened today. We are just as amazed as everyone else, but it is not fake.”

The species of spider is not currently known.
