A Michigan woman purchased a box of organic baby spinach that came with a nasty surprise inside: a live frog.
In a report by FOX 2 Detroit, a photo showed the frog inside the box of Earthbound Farm baby spinach.
"My daughter was screaming. She was like, 'Oh my God, it's a, it's a frog," Amber Worrick said. "It was alive and moving," she noted. "Just thank God I didn't eat the frog."
The box says that the product is "TRIPLE WASHED."
"I don't believe that it's washed," Worrick said, arguing that if it had been washed, the frog would have been caught.
Worrick had purchased the product at a Meijer supermarket.
"The frog was carefully relocated to a new home outdoors. This product came from Earthbound Farms, one of the many farms Meijer partners with across the country to stock the freshest produce, delivered to our stores daily. We have provided the customer a refund," Meijer noted in a statement, according to the Detroit Free Press.
The outlet also reported that Taylor Farms, which owns Earthbound Farm, communicated the following message via email: "We are in direct communication with our customer partner and the consumer to express our apologies. Food safety and consumer experience are the top priorities for us and we are looking into how this happened and how this can be prevented in the future. Our organic farming practices help promote biodiversity and healthy ecosystems on and around our farms. We will continue to work tirelessly to provide the freshest, finest quality veggies for consumers."
