(Newser) – "Lizards are not the green I was looking for," says a Trader Joe's shopper in Washington, DC, who got quite the shock Tuesday when she found a dead lizard inside her bag of pre-washed kale. "It was a back and forth between denial and horror," Grace Goldstein tells People of the incident, which Trader Joe's says it's investigating along with an unknown vendor.

According to People, she's now "really into spinach." (Read more Trader Joe's stories.)
