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 insects will manifest inside the food. All recovered insects have been found to be sterile, non-toxic, and dead. Testing on D-Class shows no adverse effects upon consumption, other than the expected feeling of disgust.

Addendum XXXX-1: Experiment Log

The following experiments were conducted by Riven Mercer.

Subject: 1 Moro Gold candy bar, unopened

Result: Wrapper remains sealed. Candy appears unmodified, except with the constituent biscuit pieces replaced by aphids (Aphis pomi).

Subject: 500 g long grain rice, uncooked

Result: Approximately 2% of grains are substituted with housefly maggots (Musca domestica).

Note: Okay.

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.

Note: I don't know what I expected.

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: This doesn't make any sense. None of this makes any sense.

Note: Does anyone even read these logs?



Note: Great news! My request to transfer to Site-19 was accepted — leaving tomorrow. Goodbye, you little rascal.

Date: 2070-12-01

Subject: 1 lemon

Result: Interior of the fruit contains five honeypot ants (Camponotus inflatus), replacing all of the seeds and most of the flesh.

Note: Great news. I've been kicked from Site-19, the whole Foundation thinks I'm a fraud, my partner left me… and guess what I'm working on again? This. Fucking. Box.

Date: 2070-12-25

Subject: 250 g chicken, roasted, with rosemary stuffing

Result: Stuffing has been replaced with mashed mealworms (Tenebrio molitor).

Note: I couldn't finish it.

Date: 2070-12-26

Subject: 500 g asparagus, cut and cooked

Result: A ladybird beetle (Coccinella magnifica) is embedded in the cladodes of each stalk.

Note: Here, I made extra for you.

Date: 2070-12-27

Subject: 100 g Camembert cheese, imported

Result: 32 head lice (Pediculus humanus capitis) appear in the surface of the cheese, partially displacing the mold.

Note: You're the only friend I have.


Date: 2071-02-13

Subject: 300 mL red wine (Leveret Estate Hawke’s Bay Syrah, 2068)
