Have you ever opened a package of pasta only to be appalled by small bugs (weevils)?
Sometimes infected packages affect others nearby. Other times stock is not rotated as frequently as it should be.
When shopping for packaged pasta gently shake the package so that the see-through section is on the bottom. Look to see if there's any sign of bugs. If not then it's safe to buy. If so- notify the manager of the problem.
