An investigation has been launched into claims that a woman found a snake in a can of cranberry sauce. A woman from Ontario, Canada, claims that she found the dead reptile in a can of sauce from Ocean Spray.
Now Canadian Food Inspection Agency officials are looking into the matter. The woman posted photos of the can’s contents to Facebook, and does indeed seem to show a snake floating in the sauce—which had been opened and poured into a bowl.
According to CTVNews.ca, the woman sent the reptile to the CFIA, and has spoken with representatives from Ocean Spray several times regarding the incident. She was apparently offered $10 worth of coupons.
Ocean Spray said in a statement:
“We take all customer reports very seriously and were very sorry to hear this customer had a disappointing experience with our product and our brand. This is an isolated incident and all products currently in stores or in homes remain safe to consume”
