A Wal-Mart customer said a scorpion pinched his thumb when he reached into a box of bananas at a store in Scott.

The man, who asked not to be identified, wasn't stung and was uninjured.

Wal-Mart representative Betsy Harden said the company alerted its food safety team, produce suppliers and third-party pest control provider. She said the pest control team searched the rest of the bananas and the store and found no other problems.

“We believe this was an isolated incident,” she said.
