Man shocked to find one single bean in new Heinz can, he claims

A man says he's "bean had" after opening a can of Heinz Baked Beans - and finding one bean inside.

Flabbergasted Steve Smith, 41, had recently bought the multipack tin from U.K. supermarket Tesco online and was hoping to cook a quick meal after a busy day.

But the local politician based in Bristol, England was thwarted by a shocking discovery - there was only one bean in the tin. The can was full of bean juice - but only one bean.
