A mother of four found a snake head in a bag of frozen green beans while cooking for her family in Houston, Texas, MyFoxPhoenix.com reported Monday.
Ernestine Jamison said she opened the bag of Pictsweet frozen cut green beans last month to find what she first thought was a rock.
"I saw something in there I wasn’t for sure what it was. I thought it was a rock because it was hard," Jamison said.
But upon further review, the Jamison family concluded the green and black frozen object nestled in their dinner was a severed snake head.
"When I saw it was a snake's head I just threw it down and called my kids and said I got a snake head in the green beans, everybody said 'Oh lord, you got a snake head in the green beans'," Jamison said.
After the screaming subsided, 15-year-old Sarah Jamison grabbed her camera and took video and pictures of their uninvited dinner guest.
"I saw big eyes, with a mouth open and a tongue coming out, it looked like it was ready to attack," she said.
Jamison called Pictsweet, and they offered her $150.
But she wasn’t looking for money and turned it down.
A letter sent by the company’s insurance provider to Jamison claims Pictsweet "is not responsible for this accident," and they are "denying liability".
The company also claims it wasn’t a snake head - it was a frog head.
"But it's still gross whether it's a frog or snake," said Jamison.
Now Jamison has to try harder than ever to get her children to eat their greens.
"Vegetables, umm, I don't look at vegetables the same, I never really liked the vegetables but like now I can't even go near vegetables," 17-year-old Mariam Jamison said.
MyFoxPhoenix attempted to contact Pictsweet several times in recent weeks to respond to the report, but calls were not returned.
