Read that again: She found a dead mouse sewn into her dress. I don’t think that’s what she meant when she said she wanted to be fashionable.
This wouldn’t be the first time people have found a dead mouse where there shouldn’t be one, as a Canadian man once found a dead mouse in his McDonald’s coffee cup, and an Oklahoma couple once found a mouse head in their can of green beans. But this right here is just bizarre.
Cailey Fiesel, a 24-year-old woman who lives in NYC is suing Zara after she said she found a dead mouse actually sewn into the hem of her dress. Fiesel says she bought the dress from a Greenwich, Connecticut Zara store in the summer.
Fiesel only noticed the mouse a few weeks later when she wore the dress for the first time and noticed, and get this, a “disturbingly pungent odor” coming from it. Holy hell, that is gross.
“I felt something brushing up against my leg and thought it was a string from the seam of the dress,” Fiesel tells New York Post. “I then felt the hem of the dress and it felt like there was some sort of sensor. I turned up the seam of the dress and saw it was not a sensor and that it was a mouse. I froze – I was paralyzed with fear.”
It gets worse: In the legal documents, Fiesel says that she developed a large rash that was diagnosed as a “rodent-born disease.” So obviously Fielsel is suing Zara for unspecified damages.
And what does Zara say about all this? Well here was their statement: “[Zara is] aware of the suit and we are investigating the matter further. Zara USA has stringent health and safety standards, and we are committed to ensuring that all of our products meet these rigorous requirements.”
