The daughter says ""It's kind of embarrassing," she said. "My mother is a very dignified lady. Everybody around here knows her. My father was a minister."

Good, then she won't stoop to litigation against Campbells, right? After the Wendy's Chili-finger incident, the press should be more careful about reporting this crap. The Chili incident killed Wendy's revenues -- I'm glad to see that Ayala woman doing time for fraud.

dead mouse,was it mickey? well any way it's just extra protean...lol.....what did she do eat the beans right out of the can....that is the only way i can think of she would eat it without seeing the mouse,because if she put it in a pan,the mouse would have fallen out,don't you think? i always look in my can food to be sure all food is out and if i ever come across something that shouldn't be there in the trash it goes...when in doubt throw it out....

The FDA allows a set percentage of rodent and insect material in every thing we eat. Every thing processed and that comes to your table. So in this case the total allotted amount for one batch of soup came in one can and not distributed in 25 thousand cans. This could be a good thing?

No, she had put the soup in a bowl, most likely after heating it (the picture above is after they put the mouse and the soup back into the can to store for investigation purposes). But I still can't imagine emptying a can of soup into a bowl or a pan without seeing something big and brown lying in it. Most people, before eating soup, stir it around a bit to cool it off. Surely if a mouse were in there, any blasted fool would have seen the thing.

The actual FDA acceptable limits for foriegn matter in processed or canned foods is 10% foriegn matter per tank! A mouse is within the 10% foriegn matter catagory. No harm, no foul. MMMMMM Tasty! An inspection of the mouse can and will indicate weather or not this is a hoax. If the mouse was sealed in the can when it was cooked in the boiler then the mouse shold be cooked and etible. If the mouse showed up after the can was open, the contents of the stomach and the condition of the skin would indicate an untimely demise but not by the canner. You are right about foreign matter...only 10% of total tank storage capacity. A 500,000 gallon tank can have up to 50,000 gallons of foreign matter...that's no joke.
