A Utah woman's claims that she discovered a severed snake head in a can of green beans has caused a company to halt some shipments of the beans, the Associated Press reported on Friday.
Citing an interview with KSL-TV in Salt Lake City, the AP said Tory Walker of Farmington, Utah, was making dinner Wednesday for fellow church members. As she was taking the beans out of a slow cooker she spotted what she first thought was a burnt bean.
As she lifted the spoon closer, Walker said she realized it had eyes.
Walker immeditly took the snake head and empty can back to the store where she purchased it. She also took a picture of the snake head and sent it to Western Family, the food distributor in Oregon who shipped the can of beans.
As a result of Walker's complaint, Western Family halted further shipment of any cans of green beans from the same batch. They're also in the process of determining how many cans from that batch were already shipped to stores.
Walker said she was nauseated by the experience, but is not angry about it. She just hopes nobody else makes a similar find in their can of green beans.
She also joked with family members about not serving green beans as part of an upcoming family dinner.
