(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. As she "didn't want a decomposing lizard in the fridge," Goldstein says she put the bag of kale in the freezer, though "it's a little too close to my late night ice cream for comfort." According to People, she's now "really into spinach."
