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.
