A woman in Florida, filed a complaint with LiDestri Food & Drink of Fairport, New York, after she claimed to have found a lizard leg in a bottle of Mantia’s pizza sauce.

Suzanne Abercrombie of Fort Myers, said that she bought the bottle of pizza sauce at the Save-A-Lot grocery store near her home.

She made pizza and used some of the sauce. After eating the pizza, she fell ill.

At first, Abercrombie did not associate the illness with the pizza sauce, but when it happened a second time, she emptied the entire bottle.

Abercrombie was shocked when something that appeared to be the leg of a lizard fell out of the bottle.

The woman returned the bottle of sauce to the Save-A-Lot grocery store, where workers freaked out and offered her free milk or wine, but she refused.

The woman then sent the bottle and the lizard leg to LiDestri Food & Drink. The company tested the object, and it was found to be just moldy sauce.

The company sent their finding to Abercrombie. In a letter, the company assured Abercrombie that there was no animal matter in the bottle of sauce.

Abercrombie dismissed the finding, saying she fell ill and could not work for several days, causing her losses of $500.
