After notification from a local news station, Giant Food recently pulled their bagged spinach products from shelves. A couple from Maryland found a live scorpion in a recent purchase of bagged spinach, captured it, and returned it to the store.The customer asked Giant to stop selling the bagged spinach, but the store did not initially do so.

Although there was no product recall, Giant Food of Landover did issue the following statement:

“Customer satisfaction is our highest priority. We regret any inconvenience to our customer. We take the quality of our products very seriously, and we are following up with the supplier to take every step to ensure this isolated incident does not occur in the future.”

Scorpion stings are rarely fatal, according to the Mayo Clinic website, although they can be very painful. Healthy adults usually don't require treatment for scorpion stings, but if a young child is stung, medical advice and treatment should be sought immediately.
