HELSINKI (Reuters) - A hospital patient in Finland found a mouse head among the steamed vegetables on his plate.
“Understandably, he lost his appetite,” said Sakari Kela, chief administrator at the Northern Karelia Central Hospital.
The health of the patient in Joensuu, eastern Finland, had not been compromised by the dead rodent, Kela said Saturday.
The severed head most likely originated in a bag of Belgian vegetables. The body has not been found and being “a Belgian mouse, the rest of it could be anywhere in Europe,” Kela said.
