Madeline Brogan of Sarasota said she purchased the package of frozen spinach from a Publix store and set aside a strange chunk when she cooked it to serve to her New Year's Eve guests, WTVT-TV, Tampa, Fla., reported Thursday.
Brogan said she investigated the chunk while cleaning up the following day.
"I picked it up and started pulling the spinach off it and realized there were two eyeholes, and it was a little skull," she said. "I ate that eye, or someone did."
Publix said the incident is being investigated.
"We did receive communication from the customer through our customer care department, which was shared with our corporate quality assurance team. They are working through the details with the customer and the supplier. We have not received any additional complaints and believe this is an isolated incident," the store said.
Brogan said Publix offered to refund the cost of the spinach and she isn't looking for anything else from the store other than ensuring the matter is taken seriously.
