Procter & Gamble Co. is looking into a report that an Iowa woman found a dead turtle in a package of its Folgers coffee, the company said on Friday.

P&G spoke with the woman, Marjorie Morris, on Thursday. The incident was reported by the Associated Press.

Morris says she found the turtle in a vacuum-packed brick package of Folgers coffee. She transferred the coffee to a plastic container for storage in the refrigerator and no longer has the original packaging, a spokeswoman for P&G said.

Morris is sending the animal to P&G for investigation.

“We believe that this is an isolated incident,” P&G spokeswoman Susanne Dusing told Reuters.

P&G, which makes Folgers and Millstone coffees, said it was not aware of any other such incidents.

According to the AP report, Morris, of Ainsworth, Iowa,  said she does not plan to sue Folgers.

The report comes months after Wendy’s International Inc. saw its sales suffer after a woman claimed she had found a piece of human finger in a bowl of the burger chain’s chili. The woman and her husband were later arrested and pleaded guilty to charges that they planted the finger in the chili to obtain compensation from Wendy’s.
