ENDICOTT, N.Y. — A woman says she found a large bug in her Folgers coffee can.

Ronisha Carson was making her morning coffee when she saw the "big fly."

"I almost threw up," Carson told FOX40. "I like freaked out and I almost threw my cup at first."

Carson said she called Folgers and the company would be sending coupons.

Folgers staff said they had not received a complaint, despite Carson's claim. They said what Carson may have seen is the skin from a coffee bean.

Smuckers, the parent company for Folgers, said they will investigate the incident.

"Our commitment to quality has long been demonstrated by our comprehensive quality assurance policies and procedures. We are extremely disappointed that we were unable to fully investigate this claim," a statement from Smuckers said.

"Based on the poor quality of the images you provided and most importantly the fact that our quality assurance teams have not had an opportunity to examine the product, we cannot provide an assessment of the images."
