A Pennsylvania woman says she realized there was a bird in her can of spinach when she noticed a yellow beak in a lump of greens.
"I immediately felt like I was going to vomit," Cherie Lyons, of Chambersburg, told the York Daily Record. "I was sick for the next whole day."
Lyons said she found the bird June 14 after pouring the spinach into a bowl.
Lyons told the Daily Record she felt mistreated after calling Del Monte. She was offered a $10 check and a request for the bird to be sent back.
Del Monte told the Daily Record it’s investigating the incident.
"We are working with the consumer to gather more information and investigate the matter,” the company said in a statement. “We implement strict controls throughout our operations to ensure our products meet the highest levels of quality, safety, and purity."
