Action News

HAVERFORD, PA (WPVI) -- A Delaware County grocery store worker is on the mend after being stung by a scorpion that hitched a ride in a load of bananas.

The incident happened Saturday at the Giant store in Haverford Township.

Giant spokesman Chris Brand told Action News the man was stung while he was unpacking a shipment of Chiquita bananas.

The worker was taken to the hospital for treatment. He is now home treating his sore hand.

The exact species of scorpion has not been identified yet.

The bananas in question came from a farm in Honduras. A Chiquita spokesperson said the company will no longer use that farm.

In a statement, Giant officials said,

"We regret that this incident has occurred and have taken immediate steps to prevent a similar incident from happening in the future.

GIANT inspectors have been put on high alert. Bananas are reviewed and inspected multiple times throughout the ripening cycle in our Perishable Distribution Center."

Who knew drugstore.com had so many sex toys in the clearance section? Found this and like the coffin box, lol! This, Death by Orgasm The Scorpion

When one of the anchors was shown asking, "Guess what someone found in the bananas?", I guessed spiders, lol!

A NY site showed a picture of a purple Asian something scorpion, then added, "This is not the scorpion." It was also copyrighted so I couldn't steal it.

They probably need to do a DNA test to see where it originated. I know nothing about scorpions, but, I like the ones that glow in the dark at the zoo. The nocturnal section is my favorite.

The one the anchor showed on the news at 11 PM ET looked purple to me.

Kanda444, It may not pay well, but, it adds to the conversation after work.

"How was work today?"

"Got stung by a scorpion hiding in the bananas."

Doesn't happen everyday, lol!

Re: Pennsylvania Grocery Worker Stung by Scorpion

I found a GIANT dead spider when I worked in the fruit and veg at a supermarket in my teens. I was terrified for a good couple of weeks afterwards. It's not that uncommon either.
