Woman Disgusted After Finding Small Rat Sewn Into Her Zara Dress

A Manhattan woman bought some clothes from Zara in Greenwich, Connecticut last July and hung them up in her closet. She put on one of the outfits for work in August and was shocked to see that something disgusting was hiding in it.

Cailey Fiesel put on her new $40 black scoop-neck dress about a month after she had purchased it. The 24-year-old was first alerted to the fact that something was wrong when she smelled a terrible odor.

She couldn't find the source, but it seemed to follow her.

"As the day went on, Ms. Fiesel started to notice what felt like a loose string from her dress rubbing against her leg," said a lawsuit filed with the Manhattan Supreme Court, "...without giving it much thought she reached down with her hand to try and locate the piece of string that was rubbing against her."

The 'string' turned out to be the appendage of a dead rodent. Fiesel was horrified when she felt the small lump in her hemline. She ran to take off the dress and found a small rat had been accidentally stitched into the dress.

Fiesel tells The New York Post: “I froze — I was paralyzed with fear. I was in complete shock. My eyes saw that it was a mouse but my brain told myself it can’t be.”

“It’s disturbing," said Adam Deutsch, Fiesel's attorney. "It clearly comes from a lack of oversight in terms of what they're putting on their shelves."

Fiesel is suing for an unspecified amount.

Zara is investigating the matter. "Zara USA has stringent health and safety standards, and we are committed to ensuring that all of our products meet these rigorous requirements," said a spokesperson for the company.
