Little Bugs in Corn Meal Where Did they Come From?

I can barely write about this again, and I am so grossed out that I might never bread fish again.Last night I prepared tilapia that I breaded in corn meal (about 6 months old), mixed with old bay, and put into the oven to bake. After all was in the oven, I took a look into the bag of corn meal, and only then did I notice it was crawling with very tiny black bugs! Echh! I had to toss all the fish, and got so frustrated. I gave the family scramble eggs for dinner since I could handle preparing anything else. Anyone know how these bugs got their in the 1st place? Was the it just too old? The bag was in a sealed plastic bag in a dark dry cupboard. & what were these bugs? We took a look at the other dry items, and they were clean.
