    Margie,The cupboards are spotless and the flour was in the sealed cardboard container with snap plastic lid, my first thoughts was weevils I agree, to be honest the flour was in the cupboard for a couple of months so they could have been in the last bag of flour I topped the container up with,anyway they are in the dustbin now and just to double check I cleaned out the cupboard again, my own fault I should have used it up before now but most of my baking lately has been with plain flour, live and learn and I will but a new airtight container Rog

    Good point about the process Brew,is it a case of someone else changing the process because they think it's more healthy for us without consulting us? Rog
