Dead Mouse Found in BBQ Chips

Postby sox 06 » Fri Mar 16, 2007 2:01 pm

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - An eighth-grader said he found a dead mouse inside a bag of Frito-Lay barbecue potato chips he bought in a school lunch line, and his claim appears credible, school officials said.

The boy reported he found the mouse Wednesday at Lewis-Palmer Middle School in Monument, about 40 miles south of Denver. The principal and a vice principal interviewed his parents and other students who were sitting at the same lunch table and decided the incident didn't appear to be a prank, said Donna Wood, a spokeswoman for the Lewis-Palmer School District.

Frito-Lay spokeswoman Aurora Gonzalez said Friday the Plano, Texas-based company expected to receive the bag of chips soon and will investigate to determine what action, if any, it will take.

"We take these things very seriously because we have stringent quality control in place," Gonzalez said.

Wood said the school district has temporarily pulled all chips from its vending machines and lunch lines.

Yes doctor, I am sick.

I don't understand people who get upset about this kind of thing. If I found a mouse in a bag of chips I'd take the bag back to where I found it, tell them there was a dead mouse in there, ask for a new bag and call it a day.

When will these companies get more careful of how they package their food products? The other day i found regular Skittles in a package of Sour Skittles i purchased from a vending machine. %-6

People like this overeact but they do have something to beef about. If you opened a bag of chips and found a mouse, you should get something for it because that shouldn't ever happen.

I don't see why they should get something. If they ate a bag of chips that made them really sick then give them something, but I highly doubt finding a mouse in a bag of chips will traumatize the kid for the rest of his life. It is pretty gross though.
