In 1992, I had a salad there, which contained shrimp. The shrimp was at the bottom of the salad and still had the tails. I wasn’t paying attention and swallowed the tail (there were other crunchy parts in the salad, so it didn’t feel strange).

When it went down it perforated my esophagus and I spent the weekend in the hospital. Hopefully they don’t put tails on the shrimp in the salad, or they put them on top of the salad, so you can see them.

Sorry about your accident. I eat a lot of chicken, in burritos and bowls, where it is disguised among the other ingredients.

Chewing is the only safeguard, and occasionally I will find a bone, in my mouth.

Chewing improves digestion, slows down eating, even reduces calorie intake, if that matters.
