Chicken-Fried News: Easter mouse



Nothing ruins an Easter potluck like a mouse’s head and leg in your can of green beans. Yes, you read that right.

Andrew and Chelsea Belflower bought a bunch of fancy cut green beans from a metro-area Crest Foods grocery store and discovered something not so fancy in one of the cans.

The two youth group leaders were preparing an Easter dinner for church when Andrew made the discovery.

“I just noticed there was something black in the green beans and was like that’s not normal. So I picked it up and threw it. [It was a] mouse head!” Andrew Belflower told KFOR-TV.

The couple alerted the grocery store and made a call to Best Choice, the canner of said green beans, to inform the company there might be a lot more than vegetables in some of its goods but was unable to reach anyone during the holiday weekend. The Belflowers held on to the animal remains in case Best Choice wanted them.

“I’m afraid there could be some bacteria or something in it, and if this has been in a batch, maybe the distribution center will want to test it,” Chelsea Belflower said.

KFOR-TV reported that Best Choice has since pulled its cans of green beans from Oklahoma shelves as a precautionary measure.
