Interesting news, though not so interesting for the victims.
A family in the UK bought prepared salad bought from Tesco’s supermarket and the salad came with a surprise, a dead bird. According to the report, Mr Streeter, the salad purchaser “emptied the salad into a bowl and presented it to his family at the dinner table before returning to the kitchen.” "Suddenly my girlfriend shrieked and couldn't believe what she'd found on her plate”. Mr. Streeters girlfriend is a strict vegetarian.
I guess the mystery of how the bird ended up in the salad will perhaps remain unsolved. Was the bird caught when the salad was being picked at the farm? Or was it added by someone along the way. These things happen. A friend of mine used to work in a butcher. Once a bird flew into the butcher and never flew out again. Some customers probably found their mince meat had a special gamey taste, and they probably loved it!
Back to the UK story. The supermarket has apologized, of course. However this incident will probably teach the family a lifelong invaluable lesson, make your own salad. The salad in question was a simple baby leaf and rocket salad. How hard can it be to put it together? If you want others to put different greens together for you, you should accept the possibility of finding a surprise.
