What's up with animals in food??

Usually, I'm all for animals in my food.  After all, you can't have bacon without pigs and you can't have chili (mmmm, chili) without cows.  But recently, there have been a WHOLE LOT of unwanted animals in packaged food.  YUK!

Recenly a UK man found a mouse in his loaf of bread. (Typing that last sentence gave me the heeby-jeebies)  It's sorta nasty -- the poor little guy got sandwiched between the bread and the plastic wrapper.  Sorry for the pun, but it was necessary!

And while looking for that info, I ran across this: A woman in Minnesota found a gecko in her Planters trail mix. This one seem a little wierder to me.  A mouse in a bread factory makes sense to me.  A gecko in a trail mix facility seems a little off..... I wonder if he had insurance!  :)  (Admit it -- you saw that coming!)
