Mouse in Loaf, found in Supermarket in Ballymoney

Ballymoney is a town 12 miles away from me, made me laugh, Ballymoney folk usually would be glad of a good feed of free meat.

A man got the shock of his life when he opened a loaf of bread and found a whole mouse inside.

North Antrim Magistrates Court heard how a man purchased a Hyndman’s malt loaf from a supermarket in the Ballymoney area before Christmas 2007.

When he unwrapped the loaf he discovered the small lifeless mammal embedded in the base of the bread.

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

The managing director of the company was present in court to answer the charge.

A defence lawyer told the court that the presence of the mouse was a shock to the company. He suggested it might have been put in the tin to “sabotage” the baker who has been in business for 60 years and has never had any complaints.


  1. At least he saw it. . . Before tucking into. . .lol

    I remember reading some years ago a persons K.F.C (the cheap imitation version that is). His fried chicken had a tail to it.

    Yes he did start on it. . .looked like any fried bread crummed piece of poultry I guess.

    eeoooww! !xxx

  2. Chazza, that is jiving! It would have started tasting a bit hairy quite soon into the feed.

  3. youd have thought so, wouldnt you. . Lol. Xxx

  4. Just add sauce...
    Should've been rebranded as an exotic European dish.

  5. Isti, there's a good chance that IS being sold as a tasty meal somewhere.
