How Many Times is Too Many to Find a Bug in Your Salad?

It's Friday and it's time to hear from the crowd. We're launching regular open threads to try to answer some burning reader questions. Have something you want discussed among the fine Eater readers? Send it this way.

2011_04_bug1.jpgToday's burning question comes straight from someone here at Eater HQ, who filed this after today's lunch:

Last week I picked up a salad from a place around the corner from the office. The salad was great, and I will probably have it again. I'm just going to go ahead and say it was Financier, and the commenters can say whatever they're going to say. Love Financier, loved the salad, but there was a little bug in it. A small fly. I picked it out, and it was fine.

Today, I got a different salad from Financier, and as I was telling my co-worker my bug story from last week, I put my fork into this lady bug type creature to the right. One bug, fine. Two in a row? I like that the salads are fresh, but I may have to switch up my lunch order.

Today's reader question: how many bugs-in-a-salad instances is too many? Somewhat related: what kind of bug is this?
