Western Family Foods is investigating into how the “foreign material” got into the green beans.

A Farmington, Utah, woman’s discovery has opened up a can of worms, or more accurately, snakes, for Western Family Foods. Troy Walker discovered what appears to be a snake’s head in a can of Western Family green beans while preparing dinner for elderly neighbors, reports KSL. 

“It looked pretty much like a burnt bean. And then as I got closer to lift it off the spoon, I saw eyes… That's when I just dropped it and screamed,” says Walker. She brought the snake head and empty can back to Harmons Grocery and received a full refund on the cans she purchased.

Walker sent a photo of the snake head to Western Family and has been in touch with the company as it continues its investigation into the matter. Sharon McFadden, Western Family’s Vice President of Quality Assurance, says, “We have stopped distribution on that lot of canned green beans. We have issued a recall to wholesalers. That product was produced in August 2014 in Oregon. We are investigating how this happened,” quotes Fox 13.
