today we had the pleasure to dine at #1343 table 71 check #25931. during our visit my mother found a piece of plastic in the bulk salad provided for the three of us that were dinning. our order was two soup and salads, and one chicken alfredo, in which my brother ordered the salad with his hot entree'. this incident was brought to a ladys attention i assume was a manager on duty. her response to the foreign object in our salad was she would inform the provider that was in paris, tn of the mishap along with an apologie. although i don't blame her, or the attentive waitress we had for the item found in our salad, i wanted the olive garden corp. to know what we experienced during our visit to this olive garden during our lunch. it makes a customer wonder what else could be in our food of foreign nature and we not know about it.
