Maryland couple finds scorpion in bag of spinach

CHEVY CHASE, MD (WWBT/WRC) - A Maryland couple opened a bag of spinach from the grocery store to find a live scorpion inside.

Shanmukha Pranay Rajeev Jerripothula says he and his wife, Sri Sindhusha Boddapati, bought the "Triple Washed Spinach" at Giant on Friday night and opened it Monday afternoon, which means the scorpion had been crawling around in there for days.

Sri was able to capture the scorpion inside this water bottle and immediately called her husband at work. He then rushed home to take it back to the store where they bought it.

According to WRC, the Chevy Chase store pulled all of the remaining bags of spinach from the shelves, but there is no word yet on widespread recall just yet.
