Malik told WCBS 880 reporter Sophia Hall that something was amiss the day after she bought a bag of potpourri from HomeGoods in Riverhead.
“Two pieces of the potpourri actually was out, crashed onto the floor,” Malik told CBS 2’s John Slattery.
After that, she said she found a nine-inch-long piece of snake skin in the potpourri bag.
“And then the whole other piece just came out in one long strand,” she told Slattery. “It was moist.”
Malik said she has not seen a snake, but is convinced there is one somewhere in her house.
