Yvonne Whalen said she found a live spider in the grapes she purchased at a local supermarket.

A local expert said it was a dangerous black widow.

Whalen, from Dillsburg, said she bought the red grapes last week. On Thursday, she pulled them out of the fridge. While she was rising and eating them, she found the spider.

Bridge performs black widow removals.
