Irvins Salted Egg Apologizes for Lizard Incident

Plus, details on how to get a refund.

( Christmas may be full of surprises but Jane Holloway from Thailand could probably do away with what she got this holiday season. In a Facebook post dated December 29, 2018, she recounts how her mom and brother had discovered a dead gecko in their bag of Irvins Salted Egg Fish Skin, which she guesses had been deep-fried together with the fish skin.

Irvins Salted Egg immediately responded. They've posted an official statement on their official Facebook post taking full responsibility for the incident and have also apologized to Holloway and her family. Most important to note: If you bought any snack packs that expire on October 16, 2019*, or "are simply uncomfortable with consuming [Irvins] snacks," Irvins encourages everyone to "kindly email [them] at" for refunds and recalls. Here's hoping there will be fewer scaly incidents involving snacks in the future. 

Read their full statement below:

*Update as of January 4, 2019: A representative from Irvins Salted Egg Philippines clarifies that snack packs that expire on October 16, 2019 were not sold locally.
