SARASOTA, Fla. (CBS Tampa) — A Florida woman claims that she found a bird skull in a bag of frozen spinach.
Madeline Brogan posted a picture on Facebook of what she said is a skull that she found in a bag of spinach she bought from Publix, a grocery store.
“I found a bird skull in a bag of frozen chopped spinach from Publix. Yes, a skull … With one eye, which means the other one was eaten,” she posted. Brogan took the picture of the alleged skull next to a toothpick to show how small it was.
Brogan told WTVT-TV that she discovered the skull on New Year’s Eve after microwaving the bag of spinach and draining it.
“I picked it up and started pulling the spinach off it and realized there were two eyeholes, and it was a little skull,” she told WTVT. “I ate that eye, or someone did.”
Brogan stated that she called the store and that the Publix manager offered her a refund. She declined the refund, saying that she doesn’t want anything from the grocery store.
Publix believes this is just an isolated incident.
“We did receive communication from the customer through our customer care department, which was shared with our corporate quality assurance team. They are working through the details with the customer and the supplier,” Publix said in a statement to WTVT. “We have not received any additional complaints and believe this is an isolated incident.”
