A Pennsylvania woman was disgusted when she found what she thinks was a dead bird in a can of spinach

Cherie Lyons said she was making dinner and opened a can of Del Monte Foods spinach, and when she dumped it in a bowl, she saw the unthinkable.

“So for dinner tonight I had grilled chicken, baked potato and BABY BIRD...in my spinach!! I am traumatized!!” Lyons wrote on her Facebook on June 12.

“I found some weird stuff in can veggies but never anything like this. I've washed my hands a couple times and they still don't feel clean, and I feel nauseated. Somebody will be getting a phone call tomorrow! So so so gross that I almost ate this!!! (thebird)”

Lyons has since called the company to file a complaint and they offered her a $10 check for her troubles, she told Fox News.

The company also reportedly sent a letter to Lyons asking her to send a sample of the bird so they could test it.

In a statement to Fox News, the company said: "Del Monte Foods is committed to providing high quality, safe and nutritious foods. We are working with the consumer to gather more information and investigate the matter. We implement strict controls throughout our operations to ensure our products meet the highest levels of quality, safety and purity."
