EWING, N.J. (AP) -- A New Jersey man claims he found maggots in a sandwich he ordered from a convenience store.

Chris Garcia tells The Trentonian that he bought a buffalo chicken cheesesteak hoagie on Saturday from the Wawa store in Ewing before returning home. Garcia claims after a taking few bites, he noticed sauce from the sandwich was moving.

The 22-year-old Ewing man says he found two maggots moving around his sandwich. Garcia's mother recorded video of maggots crawling on the sandwich wrapper.

A spokeswoman for the convenience store chain says Wawa inspects its stores daily and holds itself to the "highest standard of quality in the food that we serve."

Garcia says he was given a refund after returning to the store with the sandwich.
