    How do these small flies get into unopened loaves of bread?

    I bought bread wrapped in a transparent plastic paper and after about 24 hours there is something like 20 small flies playing inside the transparent plastic wrapping which has not been opened since when that bread was bought. How did these flies get into the unopened loaf of bread and where did they come from?

    It would seem that somewhere along the line the bread was left unwrapped long enough for the flies to attach themselves to it or hatch out from eggs deposited on it by their mama. Some flies such as fruit flies may need only a week to develop from egg, to larva, to fly. The store where you bought the bread needs to know about the situation.

    The eggs were already in the bread when you bought it.  The flies cannot just appear out of nowhere like magic.  I agree with the commenter below; you should alert the store to this and perhaps you'll get your money back, and perhaps they'll check into it.  We can hope they'll look into it at least!

    good question! I had been hoping mad to find these flies in the unopen bread/ buns too. Thanks for posting this question.
