I ordered a blanket from Amazon and found this bug. Wondering what it is so I can either get rid of the blanket or just wash it a couple of times for peace of mind.

What you have is a plant bug, Not sure of the species, but they are pests of some crops. They are not a problem in homes. A quick wash of you blanket and you should be fine.

Not sure how it got in the package.
