New England Woman Makes Terrifying Discovery After Shopping Organic
It's was a nightmare come true after spending time in the produce section.
According to WMUR News 9, a Connecticut woman says she found a black widow spider in a package of grapes. The woman says she was in the organic section of Stop & Shop in Branford, Connecticut Monday morning. After purchasing the organic grapes, she and her 11-year-old son were eating them together when they found the spider. In the WMUR report, the woman, who remained nameless, noticed the spider before she put the grapes in her mouth. For it's part, Stop & Shop offered her a full refund for the grapes.
Stop & Shop said in the report it takes all necessary measures to keep spiders out, but it is possible for them to get in because they are part of the “natural, organic environment.”
Listed in Wikipedia, black widow spiders have unusually large venom glands and their bite can be particularly harmful to large vertebrates, including humans.
Who's going to look extra hard next time they shop for grapes now?
