Blog: Snake found in cereal

Catherine Sleep | 4 May 2005

First there was the poisonous spider found hiding in a bag of grapes, then came the severed finger in a fastfood meal. And now a five-year-old boy has found a two-foot-long snake in a box of cereal.

According to reports, the boy’s parents had bought the “Golden Puffs” box of cereal from a Netto store in Telford. Netto is apparently reviewing its safety procedures and checking with suppliers to find out how the harmless corn snake ended up on the breakfast table.
