Netizen Jane Holloway took to Facebook to express her pure disgust when she opened a packet of Irvins salted egg fish skin, only to find a fried dead lizard inside.

Along with a letter of complaint written by her brother, she also shared horrifying photos of the creature.

In her post, she wrote, “OMG I can’t believe IRVINS Salted Egg is not purely salmon fish skin but also gecko! My poor brother and mum ate half the bag before they found this inside!!! Soooo disgusting! How can this happen? This gecko was probably deep fried with the salmon skin by the looks of it. Eeeewwww!”

In response, Irvins released a statement apologizing and adding that they will be looking into the matter.


In their statement they said, “All of us at IRVINS Salted Egg were very shocked and devastated to hear that one of our customers discovered a dead lizard in a snack pouch that she opened.

“We promise to investigate this further as we don’t have a full explanation on how the dead lizard ended up in our snack pouch and we promise to make the necessary changes in our production to ensure this will never happen again. The case has been reported to AVA and we will cooperate with them fully”.

They also cautioned, “For all of our customers who still have our salted egg snacks at home, please kindly check on the back of the pouch for the expiry date. If you have a snack pouch that expires on 16 October 2019 or if you are uncomfortable with consuming our snacks, kindly email us at feedback@irvinsaltedegg.com so that our Customer Experience team could assist you with the product recall and refunds required for the snacks”.
