Yikes! Mouse in Maltloaf

Mouse-in-Malt-Loaf.jpgTimes might be tough but here's what not to serve your customers.

Embedded into the base of this Hyndman's maltloaf is a lifeless mouse, purchased by one very shocked man from a supermarket in the Ballymoney area before Christmas 2007.

The judge fined the company, D Hyndman and Son Ltd, Maghera, £1,000 plus costs for placing unsafe food on the market, reported the BBC.

A defence lawyer told the court that the presence of the mouse was a shock to the company and suggested it might have been put in the tin to sabotage the baker who has been in business for 60 years with no complaints.

The defence lawyer said an "onerous inspection" is held at the bakery every six weeks and that two field biologists attend each year. There are 131 bait stations in the premises; staff members carry out daily inspections and two full-time cleaners are employed at the bakery who both work eight hours per day.
