Insects in my Coriander Seeds

sasserwazr | Jan 7, 2010 08:35 AM

I recently purchased whole coriander seeds from a local south asian market. After a couple days I noticed tiny, flea-looking insects coming out of the bag. Upon further inspection I saw that the little mites were coming out of the actual seeds. What are these? Anybody else encounter this? Should I toss the seeds or is it safe to use them (they are getting ground and cooked and I have eaten insects. big deal?)
