Hmmm! The head wasn't cooked, so it was obviously put in the food after it was prepared. If I were the investigator, I'd start with the customer.

I haven't read the article, but, it sounds like it happened during the picking process. Because produce is picked fresh and bagged on site lots of creatures can end up in bags of lettuce and other packaged on-site products. That's my guess. Now, I'll go read the article.

OK - read the article and agreed - someone put this in the broccoli after it was cooked and I'm with Scotch on this one - investigate the patron first.

the brocolli was already cooked when the head was added. sounds like someone playing games.

I read somewhere a little while ago that a couple of employees had just been fired and the authorities were, let's say, "interested" if they had anything to do with the tampering.
