Bugs in flour

Asked November 20, 2018, 4:03 PM EST

Used flour in pantry to bake cookies, when we got to the bottom of the container of flour it was full of small bugs. Are the cookies that we baked edible?

Without seeing the insects, I can not tell you to eat the cookies.
They are most likely flour beetles and you can search on that name on line to see if that is what you have.
After getting more information, you can decide for yourself if you want to eat the cookies.
