Mom Finds Scorpion In Bananas

A young mom found an Israeli Gold scorpion in a pile of bananas she picked up from ASDA, a UK supermarket chain owned by Walmart.

When she brought it back to the store, workers reportedly “giggled” and joked about how “cool” it would be to find a scorpion. The ASDA manager offered the not-amused mother of a 6-month old toddler a “double refund.” The type of scorpion is not deadly, but has a very painful sting.
