This wasn't just a case of a gross animal making its way into food, which has been known to happen. The salad could have literally killed it's hapless victims: According to a report from the CDC, the bat was tested, but, terrifyingly, the “deteriorated condition of the bat did not allow for CDC to definitively rule out whether this bat had rabies.” As a precaution, both people underwent rabies treatment.
