EUGENE, Ore., Sept. 5 (UPI) -- An Oregon woman says she discovered what she believes was a mouse bone in her bowl of Life cereal.

Shea Boman-Smead, 25, of Eugene said she was finishing her cereal when she noticed an object floating in the milk that she suspects was a mouse femur, KVAL-TV, Eugene, reported Thursday.

"Maybe the cereal is contaminated, maybe I could've gotten sick," she said. "Other people could find something like that in their cereal. It's just gross."

Boman-Smead said she contacted Quaker, the manufacturer of the cereal, and was sent a box with a request for her to send in her empty cereal box and the foreign object for analysis.
