(Scroll down for video) A shopper took videos of a mouse contaminating cookies in a display case and uploaded them to the Internet.
Shoppers might think twice before getting baked goods at this supermarket in Australia, after seeing a video of a mouse eating the cookie.
The incident occurred at Woolworths in Port Lincoln.
Mickey Young said that he was shopping at Woolworths, when another customer spotted the disgusting scene.
When the customer pointed it out to Young, he took out his cellphone and recorded the mouse feasting on the cookie.
The bakery was closed as soon as Young pointed it out to staff and the place was cleaned thoroughly.
The supermarket has launched an investigation into the incident and called in exterminators to make sure that it never happens again.
Young, who works as a baker at another store, said that it is very dangerous because mice carry diseases. “That is probably one of the worst things for a baker to see in another bakery,” Young said.
