Eek! There's a mouse in my loaf

It was hard to explain that dead mouse baked into a loaf of bread.
British officials have released the photo that proved Stephen Forse was not kidding when he claimed to have found the wee creature while making sandwiches for his children.
Mr Forse, who bought the bread from a supermarket last year, said on Monday he first thought a dark spot in the bread - branded Best of Both - was some poorly mixed dough.

Cherwell District Council released this picture  of a mouse in a loaf of Hovis bread  bought by Stephen Forse.

Then he noticed it had fur.
The case wound up in court.
Premier Foods pleaded guilty to violating health laws, and was fined the equivalent of $27,670.
Mr Forse said his gruesome discovery made him feel ill, and he felt sick again when health officers noted that the mouse's tail was missing, perhaps already eaten in a sandwich.
