Insects are not toxic; some are even great allies against smaller insects detrimental to our cultures but we agree, your plate is not the place for them. All of our lettuces go through very high-tech equipment to detect and discard any debris and insects that could have been collected during harvesting. The majority of them do not make it pass the pre-rinsing step and there is very little possibility that a bug ends up in a finished product but unfortunately, some insects are harder to detect than others. If you find a bug, you can put it aside and rinse your lettuce with fresh water and dry it well before eating.
