An investigation was yesterday continuing to find out how parts of a mouse got into a cereal bar which was sold in Norfolk.

Breckland Council is trying to trace where the contamination occurred before it arrived at Netto's Swaffham store.

The discovery has led to a nationwide recall by Netto on six packs of Minimum cranberry and apple flavoured bars. The customer who bought the contaminated bar found what was thought to be the tail and body parts of a mouse and complained to Breckland, who launched an immediate investigation.

A Breckland spokesman said: "Our advice to the public is to contact us on 01362 656870 if they have any concerns and return any purchases of Minimum Cereal Bars (cranberry and apple) with the batch codes BBE 04.11.07 A04, BBE 14.11.07 B14 or BBE 14.11.07 B21 to the store where a full refund will be issued."
