A Utah woman says she recoiled when she opened a can of green beans and found...a snake head. She did not find the discovery hissssssterical.

Troy Walker says she was preparing dinner for a church youth function when she almost served up something not on the menu.

A snake head....in the middle of all those beans.

She contacted the manufacturer, "Western Family," and cans are already being pulled from store shelves as a precaution.

Walker says the snake was a big surprise, but she is glad to see the company taking steps to make sure something like this doesn't happen to anyone else.

"When I went to dish them out, I thought it was a burnt bean and low and behold it was a snake head,” she said. "My biggest concern was that someone would get the body or something and not the snake head."

Western family says they've halted production.

Right now they're conducting what they call a trace-back effort to determine wholesale locations that specific lot of green beans went to.
