Severed Lizard Head Found In Kale Salad, Claims New York Woman (PICTURE)

A New Yorker claims she received extra greens in her kale salad – in the form of a severed lizard’s head.

Robin Sandusky ordered the salad from a Guy & Gellard deli in Manhattan on Tuesday, NBC New York writes.

The 31-year-old told the channel that upon her discovery, she called the store and asked for a refund, declining their offer of a replacement salad.

A manager at the store told the channel he apologised to Sandusky but couldn’t confirm if the lizard head was still in the meal when it was returned.

He said: “She told me but I didn’t check it. When the salad came back, I wasn’t here.”


Sandusky, who is a theatrical coordinator for Rodgers and Hammerstein: told the New York Daily News: “I just grossed out.

“I thought it was a piece of asparagus, but then I saw the eye.”

In January another New Yorker claimed to have found a dead frog nestling in her Pret A Manger salad.

The firm issued an apology, a refund and a voucher for a free lunch, admitting: “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.”
