Ohio man claims to find black widow spider in Kroger broccoli

TOLEDO, O.H. -- A Toledo man claims he found a black widow spider in a head of broccoli brought from the Maumee Kroger.

According to a family member, the local college student found the spider Monday when he was washing the vegetable at home.

The man then placed the broccoli, spider and all, in a sealed bag and notified Kroger.

Kroger has offered the man a full refund on the product or a replacement.

An area animal expert picked up the spider and is caring for it in the meantime.
