little white worms in onions?

Twice recently I've fouond little white worms in onions when I cut them open. In both cases, I only saw one, and it was a small white worm with a darker head. Both were alive. It totally creeped me out and I threw the onion away. Thoughts?
I've had maggots in onions once in a while, but it was with onions that went south (quite a memorable odor as well - right up there with chicken $hit...).
Yep, no doubt about it - kinda creepy and gross, but just toss them out and make sure the neighbor onions aren't infected as well.
Yes, I have those root maggotsonce in a while in the garden. When I pull up an onion and see the "roots" start moving, I have the same reaction.
