Woman Makes Disturbing Discovery Inside Store-Bought Salad

A woman was looking forward to enjoying a nice, fresh salad. Then she saw what was in it.

When Becky Garfinkel, a California woman with a love for salads and healthy eating, purchased a Taylor Farms organic baby spring mix salad from a Corona Target store, she had no idea what was waiting for her.

Ms. Garfinkel purchased the salad early in the morning, but when she went to have lunch later in the day, she was shocked to find a living creature in her meal. “I'm halfway through my salad and as I'm going to stab another bit, I see [the frog] peeking out from under the salad, I jumped back. I screamed, 'There's a frog in my salad!'" recalled Ms. Garfinkel.

According to Inside Edition, Ms. Garfinkel, who allegedly suffers from ‘meat allergies’, rushed to the bathroom and began vomiting. When she got back, Ms. Garfinkel’s husband had revived the sluggish amphibian. “I come out and [my husband] had got [the frog] out of the salad. It had been in the fridge for a couple of hours. It’s barely moving…He presses on his little chest and he started moving,” recalled the horrified woman.

Fortunately for the frog, Ms. Garfinkel has always loved animals and she decided to bring the frog into her family. Ms. Garfinkel named the frog ‘Lucky’ and it is rapidly recovering from its stint in Taylor Farms' refrigerators. Now, Lucky can relax in a small enclosure that used to belong to Ms. Garfinkel’s pet lizard. Ms. Garfinkel is just happy that she didn’t kill the poor frog, telling Inside Edition: “I couldn't believe this little, tiny thing has survived all of this…We're such animal people. We got [the frog] the moss he needed. He has a full set up. He's eating. He's climbing. It doesn't seem like he went through something so shocking.”

After Ms. Garfinkel contacted Target to tell them about the incident, Target offered the California woman a $5 gift card and released the following statement: “Target is aware and we are working directly with the guest. Additionally, our vendor Taylor Farms has been engaged and [is] in contact with the guest." Ms. Garfinkel would later receive a heartfelt apology from Taylor Farms.

Ms. Garfinkel seems to have moved on from the incident, saying: “He's lucky that I didn't eat him. He's so small — just bigger than a dime. It's disgusting... but at the same time he's cute. Let's keep him as a pet... just not in my salad.”

Taylor Farms is one of California’s most popular salad producers and this isn’t the first time that the company has been embroiled in controversy. The fruit and vegetable packaging company made headlines when it was embroiled in controversy after hiring undocumented Mexican migrants to work in a temporary capacity at “sub-minimal wage.” According to The Guardian, Taylor Farms managers threatened to report undocumented migrants to Homeland Security if they didn’t cooperate with severance or hiring terms. The dishonest employment practices were publicly revealed when former workers took their story to journalists around the country.
