A Coles customer was left feeling sick, saying she’ll “never” eat a salad again after finding multiple slugs in her Coles Kitchen Caesar Salad Kit.

The packet says that the salad is “washed and ready to eat”, but found several slugs on the lettuce as she was preparing it.

The shopper described the experience as “absolutely disgusting”.

“I don’t like healthy food and that’s the only salad I tolerate,” shopper Steph said to 7NEWS. “But nope, never again.”

After Steph shared the incident on Facebook, some suggested it was acceptable to find garden bugs in your lettuce.“You all know vegetables and fruit including lettuce are grown outside and it’s literally what slugs eat and thrive on?” one said.

Coles said that the supermarket plans on following up the issue with its supplier after the incident.

“Coles takes the quality of all our products seriously,” the spokesperson said.

“We have contacted the customer to get more information and will follow up with our supplier to investigate the matter.

“As always we encourage customers to return any item they’re not 100 per cent happy with to their nearest store for a full refund or replacement.”
