If you were at a friend’s house for a holiday dinner and you found a dead cockroach in your salad...?!

Question: If you were at a friend’s house for a holiday dinner and you found a dead cockroach in your salad!.!.!.!?
what would you do!?Www@FoodAQ@Com

i would scream and run out of room crying uncontrollably!.

or i would just stop eating !.!.!. for good!.!.!.

and i'd kick the hostess in the face on the way outWww@FoodAQ@Com

I would quietly remove it from the salad and stop eating it!. I'd the excuse myself and ask the host/hostess to join me for a private moment in the kitchen, where I would show her the evidence!. At that point she can choose to alert other guests, check the rest of the food, etc!. at her own descretion!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

I would think to my self "it's the roach that I saw and didn't eat"( for a change)!.
Here's why!.
On average we all eat about 2 lbs of insects, insect parts, rodent hair and excrement per year!.( yes, it's in your chocolate, peanut butter, vegetables, fruits, flour, grains etc etc)!.
It's call "The Food Defect Action Level"( allowable insect parts per gram of food)!.
So we eat bugs everyday( although we don't see them)!.
If we didn't we all starve to death!.

So, it's not the bug you see, it's the bug(s) you don't see!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

I would thank my lucky stars that it was still on the plate and not in my mouth!. I would get the attention of the hostess of the party and let her know what you had found!. I would then definately make sure i picked through every other thing that i put in my mouth!.!.!.!. just to be sureWww@FoodAQ@Com

Politely and privately tell the hostess, it would be the right thing to do!. But that sounds really gross!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

I'd at least be glad it wasn't wriggling!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

ask them if this salad was supposed to have proteinWww@FoodAQ@Com
