    Burger King Customer Finds Live Frog In Her Salad

    Woman Finds a Live Frog in Her Salad

    AMSTERDAM, Netherlands - A woman eating at a Burger King restaurant in the Netherlands found a live frog in her salad, the company confirmed Sunday.

    "What's happened is that one of our guests Thursday evening found a frog in her salad. She went to the manager and showed him the frog. He saw it was there and that's a fact," said spokeswoman Christine Frey.

    Dutch newspaper Algemeen Dagblad quoted the customer, identified as 23-year-old Astrid Roek, as saying "it was a big black thing, a frog or a toad."

    She said she found the amphibian while halfway through her meal at the Burger King restaurant at The Hague's central train station.

    "I stood up and screamed the place upside-down," she told the paper. Roek has submitted a complaint to the Dutch Food and Wares Authority, but is not expected to sue for emotional damages or punitive damages in the matter: large compensation suits are virtually unknown in the Netherlands.

    "We know that everybody sues everybody in the United States, but Holland is not like that, it's not how it works here," Frey said.

    Frey said the company had given its excuses and is trying to figure out how the frog got into the salad.

    It appeared likely it happened between being packaged at the restaurant and when the diner reported finding it.

    Frey said the company's basic salad supplier was confident the frog was not in the large, vacuum sealed bags of salad the restaurant receives.

    "The fact is _ it's in the process of how we prepare our basic salad _ it's just not possible a frog will survive," Frey said.

    Any frog would likely have been killed by dicing of leaves or refrigeration, but certainly by suffocation in the bags, she said.

    She said she couldn't speculate about whether it just hopped in while the salads were being prepared, or had been placed in the salad by an employee or customer as a gag.

    "We just don't know how it's happened, and we have to be careful what we say," she said.

    Frey said she did not know what happened to the frog following its discovery.

    Did they charge her extra for the frog?

    On a more serious note I wouldn't be suprised if she put it there herself!

    They will forget what you said,
    they will forget what you did,
    but they will never forget the way you made them feel.

    It's happened before. The story (read $$$$ ) would have been better if she had bitten into it. Then again, perhaps she is a Brigitte Bardot type, " no animals were hurt in the making of this lawsuit"

    I once had a terrible experience dining out: I ordered frogs legs and discovered salad on my plate!

    I am fairly certain this frog was placed in the food as a gag or joke on the customer, by one of the youths employed at this Burger King.

    If she had inadvertently tried to swallow the frog and it got stuck, she'd have been the first person to truly have a frog in her throat!
    May your genitalia never fail ya.
