LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - An East Texas woman says she made a gruesome find in her bag of greens she bought at Wal-Mart. The woman says she found a dead frog that literally made her sick to her stomach.

"I freaked out," said Carla Hill, of Gilmer. "All I could see were eyes looking at me out of my greens."

Hill was preparing her "Glory Foods" mustard greens for dinner Sunday, when she got a "froggy" surprise. 

"I was putting the greens in the pot - I'm like, 'Oh my God! I see eyes in my greens! Oh, it's a frog!' I just screamed. I was just hysterical. I hate frogs and I definitely don't want them in my greens," exclaimed Hill.

It turns out Hill's froggy greens were purchased at the Longview Wal-Mart on Fourth Street.

Anna Taylor is a spokesperson for Wal-Mart who says Hill will be reimbursed for her purchase.

"Thank you for bringing this to our attention," she said. "We believe this is an isolated incident and are working directly with the customer to learn more."

Taylor added that they are working with the manufactures to fix the problem.

On the bag, the Glory Mustard Greens states that they're "ready to cook" and all they need is to be washed.

In the meantime, Hill says Glory Greens won't be a part of her Sunday dinner anymore.

"I couldn't even eat chicken last night," said Hill. "It looked to much like that frog. I don't know if I can eat chicken again. This might be the weight loss I've been asking for."

As for Hill's love for greens, she says next time, they'll be home grown.

"I will never buy another bag of Glory Greens. The next greens I eat will be grown in my garden outside."

We also contacted "Glory Foods", which is the manufacturer of the Glory Mustard Greens Carla purchased. So far, they have not responded.
