    Irvins Salted Egg apologises for dead lizard found in fish skin snack packet

    Irvins Salted Egg apologises for dead lizard found in fish skin snack packet-c61bda10-4ad5-41ca-b29f-f915c48d374d-jpeg

    SINGAPORE - Singapore-based food company Irvins Salted Egg is offering refunds for batches of its popular snack after a Bangkok customer found a dead lizard coated with salted egg in a packet.


    Irvins Salted Egg manufactures all its products in Singapore.


    Ms Jane Holloway, 38, who lives in Bangkok, said in a Facebook post last Saturday (Dec 29) that her mother and brother had eaten half the bag of Irvins Salted Egg Fish Skin before they discovered the dead reptile.


    Describing it as "so disgusting", she wrote: "How can this happen? This gecko was probably deep fried with the salmon skin by the looks of it. Eeeewwww!"


    Speaking to The Straits Times on Wednesday, Ms Holloway said that she bought the product in Bangkok in early November from international supermarket Villa Market at K Village in the Khlong Toei district.

    Thai have definitely become more fussy than say 30 years ago when they would've queued up to buy Deep Fried Gecko with Salmon Skins.

    Nobody seems to mine the dead lizard in the bottom of a bottle of HK Whiskey.

    Probably faked it so her facebook friends could see she's eating a 700b snack.

    She's not a bad looking sort. Probably had a cockatoo. A parot as well it seems.
