(BRIGHTON, Mich.) - It was a frightening discovery for one Michigan family.

A Brighton, Michigan woman bought a bag of grapes from her local Kroger and inside was a black widow spider.

Her 20-year-old son noticed a web and then saw the spider when he was enjoying the healthy snack.

They put the spider in a jar and called Kroger.

Kroger released the following statement on Wednesday:

"Kroger is obviously concerned about the well being of our customers. We are extremely grateful no one was harmed in this incident. We recognize the customers reached out to our store team. The store team addressed their concerns with the customer.
