A grandmother is taking some heat after posting a photo of her baby granddaughter in a a roasting pan surrounded by potatoes on Facebook.

She also posted a picture of her granddaughter with her pacifier duct-taped to her mouth.

Jackie Sheaks of West Columbus, Ohio posted the photos to Facebook in an effort to be funny, but some of her friends didn't get the joke and called police as well as Child Protective Services. Both agencies visited her West Columbus home to check on the baby's well-being.

Ohio's 10TV reported that Sheaks said never meant any harm: "It started as just a joke; we put a little tape on the pacifier because we were being silly."

"What we think is funny, other people don't," she told 10TV.
