A Utah woman says she found a little surprise in a can of green beans — a snake head. 

Troy Walker says she was preparing dinner for a church youth function when she almost served up something not on the menu.

She found a snake head in a can of green beans.

She contacted the manufacturer, Western Family, and cans are already being pulled from store shelves as a precaution. 

Walker says the snake was a big surprise, but she is glad to see the company taking steps to make sure something like this doesn't happen to anyone else.

"When I went to dish them out, I thought it was a burnt bean and low and behold it was a snake head," Walker said. "My biggest concern was that someone would get the body or something and not the snake head."

Western Family says they've halted production.

They're conducting what they call a trace-back effort to determine wholesale locations that specific lot of green beans was sent to.
