Woman Finds Dead Bird’s Head in Bag of Spinach After Consuming Bag


As if a dead frog in a salad wasn’t bad enough we can add dead bird’s head in a bag of frozen veggies to our list of WTF food moments. A Sarasota woman came across the quarter sized bird’s head after she had already dined on some of the bag. To add insult to injury the tiny skull only had one eye which means that it’s very possible that her or her party guests had a little something extra in their appetizer bite. *shudder*


The bag of frozen spinach came from Publix, a popular grocery chain in Florida. While the market offered their sincerest apologies and a refund the woman doesn’t want anything from the store. Her main concern is two-fold: finding out where the rest of the bird is and pulling all the spinach bags off the shelf so no other customer has to go through the same thing. She later updated folks via Facebook to inform them a Publix representative had visited her with goodies ranging from gift cards to fruit baskets to bags of frozen veggies…including spinach.

Woman Orders Tuna Salad Gets Dead Frog Over Leafy Greens Instead


We’ve all had that moment of sheer terror when you find something that doesn’t belong in your dish. Usually these appetite killing infractions range from flies to rogue hairs but apparently we can now add amphibians to the list.

A Wall Street Journal staffer thought she’d enjoy a nice Albacore Tuna Nicoise Salad from Manhattan based Pret-a-Manger but instead she was greeted by the not-so-smiling face of a dead frog atop her leafy greens. Yes. A freaking frog was in her salad.

Though the diner was understandably not thrilled about the free frog in her lunch the restaurant has offered a statement apologizing for the mishap:

At Pret A Manger, we take issues like this very seriously. Our lettuce is sourced from farms that do not use any pesticides on its produce, therefore organic matter does very rarely manage to pass through our production process. We are currently looking into this issue to make every effort that this does not happen again.

This isn’t the first time a frog has found its way into produce meant for consumption. Back in 2008 a live frog was found in a bag of organic lettuce in Brooklyn. Where the hell is New York getting their greens?!

See, this is why Foodbeast doesn’t do salads.
