Food Container (rewrite)
rating: 0+x

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is stored in a standard Safe-class locker at Site-75. The lid and body must be kept separate while not in use. To prevent confusion, other containers in use at Site-75 should not be colored blue.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a 1.2 L transparent plastic container, physically identical to those produced by Sistema Plastics. Its lid is attached to the body via a pair of blue locking clips, and may be removed and re-attached freely.

When food is placed in the container and the lid is clipped on, one or more whole dead insects will manifest inside the food. Further testing is required to ascertain the parameters of this effect.

Subject: 500 g long grain rice, cooked

Result: Approximately 2% of grains are substituted with housefly maggots (Musca domestica). Proteins in the recovered specimens are denatured in a manner consistent with that of cooking.

Subject: 10 Oreo biscuits

Result: Each biscuit has 3-5 New Zealand blackflies (Austrosimulium australense) embedded in its surface. Specimens are placed in a checker-board pattern, with each insect perpendicular to those next to it.

Note: Does anyone even read these logs?
