Do you know what's in your cereal?

Posted: Updated:

Instead of the normal prize in the cereal box, a woman in Oregon found an animal bone.  Gross food finds aren't unheard of.  According to the Food and Drug Administration, animal droppings, insect heads, and even mold to a certain degree are allowed in food in small amounts. 

For example, noodles can have up to 4 and a half rodent hairs and cocoa beans, per pound, can contain up to 10mg of mammal waste.

If it's any consolation, the FDA says the average level of defects in products is much lower than the levels mentioned.

The information in this report was gathered by KVAL in Oregon.
