I live in Hawaii and my sister recently alerted me to this: https://www.webmd.com/a-to-z-guides/...site-in-hawaii

I check my lettuce and salads pretty closely now. Not that I was ever really looking to eat a slug but I never thought it could be fatal.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned compensation yet and so how many Avios is a Slug in a Salad actually worth?

I would honestly be horrified and would have trouble eating another BA meal

I am reminded of the advice to stay away from the food that does not attract flies...

What’s worse than finding a slug in your salad? Finding half a slug 🤢😂

I found a caterpillar in a bag of pre packed lettuce from Tesco. Finding caterpillars on Cauliflower or cabbage is also not that rare.

I felt pretty sure someone would mention it sooner or later, so was not at all surprised when you did exactly that !

this one presumably?

TLDR: everything in australia will try to kill you

presumably just removing the slug would be too much?

I remember reading about that, and it's what came to mind reading this thread.

I surround the rhubard in my garden with saucers of beer in order to prevent slugs advancing thereupon (blue slug pellets having been banned in the UK, post-Brexit). Might cabin crew have been invited to surround your seat with saucers of beer to kill the critter? Admittedly, that might be feasible in First and Club Suites. Less so in economy. Extra points if they use JetStream or BrewDog Speedbird 100.

better to find the whole caterpillar than half of one.
