Two weeks ago, when fixing brown basmati rice for dinner (bought from bulk in last 2 mos.) kept some in a kitchen container, noticed black "dust" at bottom of container; put on eye glasses to see - eek!.... many dead teeny tiny black bugs, but about 200 crawling actively. Threw the whole amt. out. b) Now - today - preparing white rice [Bagged - different brand... purchaced within last 4 mos. ] from similar kitchen container I use for daily use....and eek! again the bottom coated w/ black "dust" + about 10% crawling teeny tiny black bugs.  Will the remainder not placed into plastic container be be okay in the original bag? Or - - should the BAG be thrown away? How can I prevent this in the future?
