Worms in my White Truffle!

Hello fellow Hounds...

Yesterday I received my first ever fresh white truffle and was over the moon despite being hit hard in the pocket! I had been planning for this delivery for a while and quickly went about preparing my favorite meal for both me and my wife. Fresh egg pasta, loads of butter, parmigiana cheese, salt and pepper were all plated and waiting for the ceremonial shaving of the glorious white fungus :) Video camera was rolling as I proceeded to shave the truffle over the perfect pasta dish. After finishing the first plate I wanted to get a look at the inside of the truffle and give it a good sniff. To my horror, I found lots of tiny white worms squirming around inside my truffle. Needless to say, my wife refused to eat the pasta and our long awaited truffle week has been postponed.

Is this normal? Should I return the truffle? Should I throw it away? I have done some research and can't really find an answer....

Has this happened to anyone out there? Do you have any suggestions?
