Since all instances of frog in salad are hoaxes, well, this is a hoax too.

You can tell the bag was old. Fresh salad frogs are still alive.

I once found a beautiful caterpillar in a bag of lettuce. He was complete and alive. I stuck it outside. I always wondered if I added an invasive species to Oregon?

I once found half a grasshopper in my salad.

Whether or not I ate the other half is still unknown.

It's gross, but hell, it's an agricultural product.

i'd rather suffer the occasional frog than a lifetime of agrobusiness sterilefood.

pret a manger is a successful british company that makes decent food from reasonable ingredients with basically no evil stuff in it at reasonable prices.  there is nothing like it in the USA.  all the chains in the USA that try to pass themselves off as healthy or using good ingredients, well, don't, because very soon they figure out that in order to make more money, they have to  include more fat and salt and have larger portion sizes to keep americans waddling back - even if they keep the "healthy" veneer.   im looking at you, whole foods-takeaway food / "fresh" mexican places including chipotle / panera bread / au bon pain / corner bakery cafe.

He doesn't.  It came from the decapitated mouse head you just swallowed.

I do product recalls/retrievals for a living and have had several calls where a consumer found a spring peeper in their can of corn/peas. My most memorable pickup was a man who bought a prepackaged salad mix. As he dumped out the last bit of salad, a dead, mummified mouse fell out of the bag. He was not pleased.

We process hundreds of tons of food each year.  I am surprised that there are not more cases of small critters, nuts and bolts or other contaminates found.

I got a mummified frog in my salad bag. I tossed the whole thing out and told a few friends. It didn't dawn on me to call a press conference.

There's ick in nature.
