Food for thought

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - A Colorado Springs-area eighth-grader says he found a mouse inside a bag of Frito-Lay barbecue potato chips he bought at a school lunch line.

Officials at Lewis-Palmer Middle School in Monument, Colorado, say the boy's claims appear to be credible.

The boy reported finding the mouse Wednesday. A spokeswoman for the Lewis-Palmer School District says the school principal and a vice principal interviewed the boy's parents and other students who were sitting at the same lunch table. The officials decided the incident didn't appear to be a prank.

The district spokeswoman, Donna Wood, says the district has temporarily pulled all chips from its vending machines and lunch lines.

Frito-Lay spokeswoman Aurora Gonzalez said today the Plano, Texas-based company expects to receive the bag of chips soon and will investigate to determine what action, if any, it will take.

Frito-Lay is a unit of PepsiCo Incorporated.
