We thought last year’s giant spider was the most terrifying thing you could find in a bag of pre-packaged salad. Turns out we were wrong.
Two customers discovered what is believed to be the decomposing corpse of a bat inside a bag of salad they purchased from a Florida Walmart.
According to the Guardian, the discovery has prompted a regional recall as well as an investigation by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. While the decayed mammal was sent to a CDC lab to see if it contained rabies, the state the corpse was in prevented conclusive results. Luckily, both the consumers showed no signs of rabies after receiving treatment.
The brand in question was identified as Organic Marketside Spring Mix. Fresh Express, the company that produces this brand of salad mix, issued a public recall to their item.
Details of the product are shown here:
Walmart has since removed all of the bags from their grocery aisle shelves. Though, bat or no bat, the CDC recommends anyone who ate from the bag of recalled salad should contact their health department just to be safe.
If you happened to purchase this item, you may want to throw it out immediately.
