    Iowa woman finds dead baby turtle in package of freeze-dried coffee

    The Associated Press
    AINSWORTH, Iowa — Marjorie Morris just wanted to pour coffee into a canister. What she found in the package of freeze-dried coffee left her shell-shocked.

    Morris, 77, of Ainsworth, found a dead baby turtle in the 2-pound package of Folgers coffee last Sunday.

    "I thought it was a toy at first," said Morris, 77, of Ainsworth.

    Morris said she had been making coffee from the same package for a month before she made the discovery.

    "It's a responsibility of the company to check their shipments closer," she said. "It could be much more serious."

    Morris said she doesn't plan to file a lawsuit against Folgers.

    She said a customer service representative for the company dismissed the find, explaining that because many Folgers plants are based in New Orleans the turtle might have ended up in the coffee as a result of Hurricane Katrina.

    Sussane Dussing, a spokeswoman for Procter & Gamble, the company that owns the Folgers brand, said it's too early to say how the turtle ended up in the coffee.

    Dussing said she wasn't aware of other similar incidents and that Morris' discovery would be investigated.

    Morris, who has kept the turtle, said she would continue to drink coffee, but that she is now a more mindful consumer.

    Things could have been worse, she said.

    "It could've been a snake."

    No, I don't mean the the turtle in the coffee. I mean:
    Morris said she doesn't plan to file a lawsuit against Folgers.

    WTF!!!! That's positively unAmerican!!!!!

    It could have been a Snake on a Plane!

    Folgers should have said they were going the Cracker Jack/cereal route by putting a toy in the cans, and they couldn't anticipate that dead turtles weren't considered fun by everyone.

    What if the turtle ate the snake that was in with the coffee?

    Stupid Folgers can't keep it straight.

    Turtles don't go in the freeze-dried coffee. Turtles go in the slow-roasted coffee. Hares go in the freeze-dried coffee.
