According to a Florida Today report, 48-year-old Mims woman, Victoria Jean Harrah sat down to have lunch with her fiance. On the menu was grilled ham and cheese sandwich and some canned ravioli.

Harrah claims when she bit into the usually scrumptious ravioli with sauce, she got a shock when her teeth gnashed down on what she says was a “hairy-legged spider tucked into a pocket of pasta”.

“I spit it up…I screamed, rinsed my mouth out and I must have brushed my teeth till my teeth hurt,” said Harrah, who said she found the nasty surprise in a can of Chef Boyardee Mini Ravioli.

Hannah has since contacted the FDA and food manufacturer, ConAgra to help determine what exactly is her objectionable finding.

According to Harrah, ConAgra responded by saying, “it was a figment of my imagination, it was just a piece of meat”.

“But this was a spider, said Hannah, You can see its legs. It’s in the middle of the noodle, it’s got eyeballs and big hairy legs. Now I love Chef Boyardee, I thought it was the best ever. I would buy 20 cans a week for 30 years. But will I eat it again? Not in this lifetime.”

ConAgra is reviewing her claim. The FDA appears to be ignoring her plight.
