Woman Loses Appetite After Finding Snake’s Head In Can Of Green Beans

A Utah woman lost her appetite after finding what she believes was a severed snake’s head inside a can of Western Family Fancy Green Beans.

Troy Walker was making dinner with church members in Farmington, Utah, on Wednesday, when she spotted the unappetizing addition to the meal.

She scooped the beans out of a slow cooker and initially thought one was burnt.

As I got closer to lift it off the spoon, I saw eyes. That’s when I just dropped it and screamed,” she told the Deseret News.

Walker returned to the Harmons grocery store in Farmington, from where she’d bought the can. She left the head there, and received a full refund on all of the 30 cans she’d previously bought.

But Walker said it wasn’t about the money. “My biggest concern was that someone else would get the body,” she said.

She then sent a photograph of the serpent’s decapitated head to Western Family. 

The Oregon-based company said it was investigating the bizarre discovery and as a precautionary measure, it has suspended shipments of beans from the same batch.

“Foreign matter is not something we take lightly,” Western Family’s chief financial officer Peter Craven told the Deseret News.

He refused to confirm whether it was a snake’s head, but said that the product was “on hold” at the wholesale level.

Walker, meanwhile, didn’t fancy eating the rest of the green beans in which she’d found the head.

So she ended up throwing them all away. “It was just terrible,” Walker said.
