Weevils infest over 100K sacks of rice

Authorities check a ship containing 133,000 sacks of rice infested with rice weevils or "bukbok" at the Subic Bay Freeport Zone on Wednesday. 

The National Food Authority said these sacks of rice would be fumigated to kill the pests before they are distributed to the public.
