I Still Call Your Salad Home

Hopefully QANTAS suspended their 5 drink limit for the benefit of this poor woman:

WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) – Australian carrier Qantas said Tuesday it has changed its lettuce supplier after a passenger on a flight from Melbourne to Wellington found a live frog in her greens.

The one-inch Australian whistling tree frog didn’t get a chance to hop away. The woman plunked the lid back on her meal preventing any escape.

The Qantas plane’s crew notified the Quarantine Service while the plane was still in the air and officials were waiting when it landed at Wellington Airport.

“I’m afraid the frog was euthanized” in a freezer, service general manager Fergus Small told National Radio.

Quarantine officials made a check of the airplane “but no other frogs were detected,” he said.

A Qantas spokesman told National Radio that the airline had changed its supplier since the February incident. Tree frogs were common in the area where the lettuce was grown.

I love their excuse. It’s almost as if the presence of frogs makes it impossible to keep them out of the salad.
