A Johannesburg woman has denied planting a frog in a packet of her Woolworths spinach in a video that has gone viral on social media.

Connie  Bhebhe – a make-up artist – posted the video on TikTok.

It’s not the first time Woolies shoppers have discovered strange objects in their fresh produce.  Rats, snakes, and spiders have been found in stores and packaged products.

While Bhebhe appreciated the farm’s fresh produce, she wasn’t a fan of the four-legged visitor. 

She added: “He survived in there for two days eating spinach.”

She also denied “planting” the frog in the packet.

Bhebhe – who ordered the item via the Woolies Dash app – told The South African: “I don’t live anywhere where frigs stay, and Im terrified of reptiles, so that’s unlikely Id wake up early in the morning to search for a frog.”

Despite the scary experience, Bhebhe claimed she would continue to shop at the store.

“It’s not a train smash, but it definitely opened my eyes to how disconnected we are from how our food grows.”

In a follow-up TikTok video, she added: “Don’t blacklist Woolies after this”
