Posted: Updated:

This is a cereal crime.

A mom in the United Kingdom is super cereal about her kids' breakfast. She's ratting out Kellogg's after she found a dead mouse in her 2-year-old grandson's box of Crunchy Nut corn flakes, according to the Mirror.

Pauline Henderson, 50, was pouring a bowl of the freshly opened cereal when she says she found this:

Naturally, the Portsmouth native was disgusted.

"It was horrible," she told The Portsmouth News. "If [my grandson] Toby had eaten it I could have been rushing him to the hospital ... Goodness knows how long the mouse was in the box or if it was dead or alive when it went in."

She didn't have to rush anyone to the hospital, but she did throw the box -- mouse included -- into the freezer while she notified environmental officials.

A representative of the supermarket Tesco, where Henderson reportedly bought the cereal, told the Daily Mail that the find is "concerning."

"We set ourselves the highest standards for the quality and safety of the food we sell and were concerned to hear of this," the spokesman said. "We would like to thank Ms Henderson for alerting us and we will work with the supplier to support their investigation."

Henderson also reportedly declined Kellogg's offer of a new box of cereal.
