The Huffington Post reported that a former McDonald’s employee shot a cell phone video of a live mouse in a bag of Big Mac buns at a McDonald’s in Philadelphia. The employee alleged that mouse droppings were often found on buns at the fast food restaurant, and the manager ordered workers to serve the buns after wiping off the droppings. Check out the video below.
LegalNewsline reported that PepsiCo, the maker of Mountain Dew, is gathering scientific evidence for a lawsuit brought against the company by a man who claims he found a dead mouse in his Mountain Dew can in 2009.
PepsiCo stated that the man has no evidence that the mouse was in the can when it left the bottling plant in 2008, adding that the company had proof that the mouse could not have been in the can for that period of time. PepsiCo enlisted a veterinary pathologist to examine the mouse, and found that it could not have been in the can that long because the acid in the soda would have eroded the body into a “jelly-like” substance.
>According to Fast Company, an epidemic is wiping out U.S. bats, which are responsible for consuming large amounts of pests every day. In fact, the industrious little brown bat eats up to 1,200 insects per hour– a very large feat for such a tiny name. And not only are bats talented in pest control, but they are also great pollinators. Of course, less bats means more pests and less pollination, which means higher food prices for us.
