Woman finds tiny frog in salad, keeps him as pet
CALIFORNIA: A woman found an unexpected ‘pet’ in a boxed salad she purchased from a local outlet in California.
Becky Garfinkel of Corona said she bought the Taylor Farms baby spring salad mix from Target recently and she was about halfway through eating the meal when she noticed the lettuce moving on its own.
“As I’m pulling to go stab another bite, I see a frog sitting in my salad plate after I’ve eaten almost the entire salad. Completely freaked out — screamed. I threw up afterward because I was traumatized. I’m a vegetarian and I couldn’t believe there was a frog in there,” Garfinkel told KABC-TV.
“This is the most disgusting thing I have seen,” she wrote. “Yes that’s a frog, a live from my spring mix I got from your store today. I discovered him after eating almost my entire salad and almost stabbed him.”
Garfinkel said she rinsed the salad dressing off and noticed the amphibian appeared to be in poor health.
“[My husband] noticed that he was kind of not moving a lot and he rolled over. So he decides, let’s do some chest compressions. With his finger — I’m not kidding you — barely pushes on the little frog and he breathes and turns around. I’m like OK. We have to keep him,” she said.
