Suspected mouse remains found in beans

This is truly disgusting. I don't think I could ever eat beans again after something like this. Well...I probably could because I could eat anything, but these kids have to traumatized for life.

OAK RIDGE, Tenn. - No child became sick, but the thought of finding mouse remains in cooked green beans at a preschool lunch has officials feeling ill.

About half of the Oak Ridge Preschool's 206 students had been served Wednesday when a teacher distributing the meals spotted suspected rodent remains.

Philadelphia-based Aramark Corp., which provides food service management to Oak Ridge and more than 420 other public and private school systems around the country, was investigating, spokeswoman Karen Cutler said Thursday.

"The object has not been identified. There is no confirmation of what the object is until it is tested," Cutler said, noting that the local health department considered the health risk so minor "they declined to come out. They are not going to take any samples or anything."
