TROY, MI-A Michigan woman says she made a shocking discovery after returning home from a local Walmart Monday afternoon.

Ariel Jackson opened a carton a grapes, but as she was washing them in the sink, she says, she discovered a black widow spider inside the carton. The frightened woman says she immediately dialed 9-1-1 for assistance.

'When I called them, I was like 'this isn't really an emergency, but I have a black widow spider' and he's like 'just kill it' and I'm like 'me?  You want me to kill it?'" Jackson explained.

Jackson is just glad it didn't get loose in the house.

"My nephew is one. If he would have got bitten. If it were to get loose in the house like overnight, imagine, like something could have happened. It's just scary," she said.  "I think I'm going to take a break from grapes for a little while."

Walmart says it's investigating the allegation and taking appropriate measures to fully understand what may have happened.
