Woman Finds Reptile Head In Her Salad
A Manhattan theatrical agent got a slithery surprise in her kale salad when she found a severed lizard head among the leafy greens Tuesday afternoon.
Robin Sandusky, 31, said she ordered a $6 salad from Guy & Gallard on West 40th Street, but found the reptile head inside the lunch after it was delivered to her Chelsea office.
“It was the craziest thing,” she said. “After a few bites, I look down at my fork, and think, ‘Oh, is that a piece of asparagus?’And then I saw that it had eyes, and an arm.”
Sandusky said she has had many salads from the Hell’s Kitchen deli before and never found a reptile in one.
“I order from them all the time,” she said. “The same kind of salad at least every day for the last two weeks, and it’s been fine.”
Sandusky repackaged the head with the salad and sent it back to the deli, which promptly gave her a refund.
“Honestly, I’ve never heard of something like this,” a deli manager said.
“I’ve never even seen a lizard in New York!”
