Woman Finds Frog in Target Lettuce Mix

The tiny amphibian was probably not the salad topping she wanted

A California woman found a frog in her bag of lettuce mix from Target and only narrowly avoided consuming it.

Becky Garfinkel had nearly finished a salad made of lettuce mix from Target at her home in Corona, California, when she noticed a live frog among the greens, covered in dressing.

“As I’m pulling to go stab another bite, I see a frog sitting in my salad… completely freaked out — screamed,” the strict vegetarian told ABC7. “I threw up afterward because I was traumatized.”

According to Garfinkel, once she rescued the amphibian and rinsed it off, she noticed that it was barely breathing. “My husband noticed that he was kind of not moving a lot and he rolled over. So he decides, let’s do some chest compressions. With his fingers — I’m not kidding you,” Garfinkel continued.

After saving the frog’s life, she reported the incident to Target. The company told her that it would look into the issue and offered her a $5 gift card for her trauma.

Garfinkel and her husband decided to keep the frog as a pet, and named it “Lucky.”


If she needs something to help her relax after the ordeal, Garfinkel could use that $5 gift card to buy any of Target’s new line of $5 wines.
