SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (KMOX) - Missouri State University and its food supplier are trying to figure out how a small mouse was found in a dining hall meal this week.

The mouse was found in a salad at Garst Dining Center. University spokeswoman Suzanne Shaw says the school is working with its food service provider, Chartwells, to determine how the mouse ended up there.

Chartwells said in a statement that it pulled the prepackaged, pre-washed spinach from its facilities. 

Chartwells says it has also contacted its Quality Assurance team and is reviewing all pest inspection reports for the last six months. The company says it is confident the rodent came from its produce supplier.
