It was labelled ‘wild’ rocket salad from Italy.

But Ian Lock, 55, couldn’t believe his eyes when a live six-inch long lizard appeared amongst the leaves, crawling around inside.

The electrician said the sight of the creature in the bag he was about to use to make a sandwich made his ‘stomach turn over.’

Sometimes I doubt these stories about finding animals in bags of food.

Does seem to be a lot of them and coming from Daily Mail you have to wonder.

If it is true look at it like this, you bought a pet lizard that came with a bag of food.

If the little bugger was still alive, that proves that the salad is fresh. No?

I'd eat the salad.

Just a little protein to go with your greens.

Not sure how a lizard could remain alive in a sealed package(little air left), but who knows.

Wonder if the package ingredients read "including one live lizard" :passifier:

That's a good-sized lizard and I would guess make the bag of lettuce noticeably heavy (-ier than the other bag they picked up) and cause the bag to move as the lizard did, even make a plastic crinkling noise.  Possibly die in the bag in the frig for a week and should have eaten or torn it's way out en route, sometime?

So, not sure about this one. But having never found a lizard in my bag of greens, I can't say for sure.

That's a baby dragon!  Yuck!  I thought out would be a cute little gecko or something.

It's not a good idea to eat the salad after you found that thing in it, it had all kinds of bacteria, including salmonella, all over it.

I would never buy that brand of salad again because they clearly don't take care to be clean.

It's the veggies that cause more cases of salmonella poisoning than meats because of the fertilizer used.  Veggies need to be cleaned very well before eating.  that salad with the lizard will never be clean enough for me!  Yuck!

And geckos chirp like a songbird.Did they determine that it was in fact a lizard, or a saladmander?
