Even Popeye may have passed on having seconds with this spinach side dish. A woman discovered a chunk of something in her frozen spinach package, so she tossed it into the sink and carried on with her dish.
Much to her chagrin, after investigating the discarded piece the next day, it turned out to be the skull of a bird. “I picked it up and started pulling the spinach off it and realized there were two eyeholes, and it was a little skull,” she said. “I ate that eye, or someone did.”
Brogan, who hails from Sarasota, Florida, told Fox 13 that she was preparing her New Year’s Eve party dinner when she found the unappetizing surprise. Moreover, Madeline says she and her party attendees had eaten some of the spinach.
Publix, the company that produces the spinach, said, “We did receive communication from the customer through our customer care department, which was shared with our corporate quality assurance team. They are working through the details with the customer and the supplier. We have not received any additional complaints and believe this is an isolated incident.”
Madeline is not planning on suing but stated that she does wonder where the rest of the bird carcass may be and wants to make sure Publix take this kind of thing seriously.
