OKLAHOMA CITY -- An Oklahoma couple tells KFOR they were preparing a dish for an Easter gathering when they made a disgusting discovery in a can of green beans.

Andrew and Chelsea Belflower went grocery shopping Saturday night for Easter and picked up 8 cans of Best Choice fancy cut green beans.

They were getting ready for a pot luck dinner at church, where they’re youth pastors.

“We started opening them and putting them in the crock pot and by about the fourth can, something dumped out into the crock pot, and my husband noticed it and said, ‘what is that?’” Chelsea Belflower told KFOR.

It was just the head and leg of a small mouse.

Chelsea called the manager at the Crest Foods grocery store where they shopped, who told her she needed to call Best Choice.

She did, but couldn’t get through to anyone on the weekend.

Obviously disturbed by what they found in their green beans, Chelsea and Andrew are worried the rest of the mouse could be floating around in other cans of green beans.

“It could be in one of the other cans on my counter, it could be at Crest, it could be in someone’s pantry, it’s really kind of grotesque,” Andrew said.

It could also be a possible health risk.

The couple kept the mouse in case Best Choice wants to see it first-hand.  The manager at Crest said he’d take the rest of the Best Choice cans off the shelf.
