Supermarket chain Waitrose paid for a family to be put up a family in a hotel after they feared their home would be invaded by deadly spiders found in their bananas.
The family, from Leigh on Sea, Essex, discovered a spider's nest and egg sac when they opened the bag of fruit bought from a local Waitrose.
The mum quickly put the bananas in a plastic container in her garden and called the store where she had bought them.
She was concerned for her 20-month-old daughter, fearing the spiders could be deadly Colombian spiders known to nest among bananas.
The supermarket chain put the family up in four-star Roslin Beach Hotel in Southend for two nights while their home was fumigated.
Tests revealed that the spiders were not deadly ones from Colombia, but were in fact lizard-eating huntsman spiders.
The woman praised the supermarket's brilliant response.
A spokeswoman for Waitrose told ITV News that the safety of customers was an "absolute priority".
