SURPRISE, AZ. -- Carla Egelston bought what looked like a regular container of grapes at Walmart. But when her daughter went to wash them, she was, well, surprised.

"When I looked at it, it was a big white pill,” Egelston said.

Egelston showed WCPO sister station ABC15 in Phoenix, Arizona, a photo of the white pill right in the middle of a grape taken Oct. 8.

She bought the grapes from a Walmart in Peoria, Arizona, and wasn’t pleased with their initial response.

"They didn't ask for any of my information, didn't ask for what type of grapes they were," Egelston said.

But after informing the store that she filed a police report with the Peoria Police Department Egelston said, “They wanted to know what type of grapes they were, my phone number, my name, everything."

She posted the pictures to Walmart's official Facebook page, but says she has no ill will toward the store.

"I never said I was going to stop shopping at Walmart. I never said Walmart was at fault," Egelston said.

She just wants to remind parents to always check their food, for the sake of their kids.

"I'm not going to say I'm a perfect shopper and look at everything, but I'm more careful now. I just want to warn parents with little ones that people do this. There are sick people out there," Egleston said.
