On Thursday, August 17, 2006, I was shopping in a grocery store, in the bakery department, when I noticed what I thought were mouse droppings on the shelves with bread, rolls and other baked goods. I was disgusted!!!
On Sunday, August 20, again, I was in the bakery department of the store. Again, I saw mouse droppings on the shelves – lots of droppings. I approached an employee in the bakery and told her about it. She didn’t seem too bothered by this, but told me that she would have someone come and clean it up. Not trusting that this would actually be done, I waited around for about 15 minutes to see if someone would come. No one did.
On Monday, August 21, I called the Department of Health to express my outrage. After being passed on from person to person, the response to my claim was decidedly unenthusiastic. The woman I spoke with said she wasn’t surprised – this happens at all grocery stores. She took my name (first name only) and said she would pass on the information (to whom, I’m not sure – I assume a health inspector). I suspect that this whole claim will be mostly ignored.
So, the next time you’re shopping for raisin bread at the grocery store, make sure those are really raisins in there!
