Pret A Manger, a U.K.-based fast food chain, has a secret ingredient in their salads: Dead frogs

Yesterday, Wall Street Journal Digital Features Editor  Kathryn Lurie captured this photo of an Albacore Tuna Nicoise Salad that one of her colleague's ordered from one of the chain's New York City locations. As you can see, it's topped with a deceased frog. The recipient of the Frog Salad was understandably "shaken."

Gothamist reached out to Pret A Manger for comment, and a rep provided the following ass-covering statement:

At Pret A Manger, we take issues like this very seriously. Our lettuce is sourced from farms that do not use any pesticides on its produce, therefore organic matter does very rarely manage to pass through our production process. We are currently looking into this issue to make every effort that this does not happen again.

Inspect all salads closely in 2014.
