Woman allegedly discovers dead rat sewn into new Zara dress

A woman in New York is suing retail giant Zara after she allegedly discovered a dead rat sewn into the lining of a dress she bought.

The gruesome discovery was made after the 24-year-old smelt a “foul odour” coming from the dress which she had purchased from a Zara store in Greenwich, Connecticut, The New York Post reports.

According to local media, the young woman felt something scratching her leg – only to discover what she says was the leg of a dead rodent that had emerged from the hem.


The woman is now suing for an unknown sum.

A Zara USA spokesperson told TMZ that they “are aware of the suit and are investigating the matter.”
