I guess the dead chicken in her salad wasn't upsetting. Ironic, eh?

CORALVILLE, Iowa -- There's good news about a lizard head found in an Iowa woman's salad. It's tested negative for salmonella.



The lizard head was found earlier this month in a carry-out salad from a restaurant in eastern Iowa.



The Johnson County Public Health Department says preliminary results showed no presence of the bacteria that causes food poisoning. Final results are expected Monday.





A University of Iowa dentistry professor filed a complaint with the health department, saying his wife discovered the lizard head in a Santa Fe Chicken Salad she bought at an Applebee's restaurant.



He says she was "upset" and probably won't be eating Santa Fe salads anytime soon.



Applebee's parent company, Apple Corporation LP, has issued a statement apologizing for what it calls an isolated incident.



The statement says the restaurant is now using pre-cut, pre-cleaned lettuce for its salads.

How could a lizard end up in her salad in the first place? Most omni's that I know would never even eat a lizard.

I think the lizard was unfortunately in the wrong place at the wrong time when the lettuce was harvested.
