Anyone ever see tiny little bugs in their PBW container?

I have a 4lb container that's about a year old. I can tell that there is a tiny bit of moisture inside - its still powdery, but there is a tiny bit of clumping.

They remind me of flour mites, or something similar to that.

Anyone ever see this?

Wow those must be extremophiles, never seen anything like that.

Since the solution you'll make up will be contaminated with other organic materials as soon as you start cleaning things in it, I wouldn't hesitate to use it.

[ps: curious, I Googled this, and the same person posted this on Reddit, where it was dismissed. No other hits on this alleged phenomenon were found]
