A large rodent was found in a customer’s Subway sandwich. A customer in Lincoln City, Oregon, encountered a particularly unappetizing surprise when he was about to dive into eating his Italian sub.

Matt Jones and his friend, Jay Armstead, went into the Subway restaurant located on Highway 101 on October 6 during mid-afternoon. When the Subway employee made Jay’s Italian sandwich, she used the last bit of lettuce available in the tray. Matt, however, noticed a dead rodent in his friend’s Subway sandwich, KGW TV reports. He said that “it was gross” after discovering the dead mouse inside the sandwich.

Subway reportedly alerted the county health department right away, and an inspector was sent out to examine the dead rodent and search the restaurant for other signs of contamination. It was concluded that the rodent problem wasn’t from the Lincoln City Subway location, according to Cheryl Connell, director of Lincoln County Health and Human Services.

Connell said the mouse most likely came from a bag of the bagged spinach.

“It was probably in a bag of the bagged spinach product, not from the facility itself. Everything was sanitized and cleaned properly afterwards.”

Jones and Armstead both received full refunds on their sub sandwiches.

Jones snapped a photo of the dead rodent found inside the Subway sandwich and posted it on his Facebook page. The photo is seen above in this article.

“Look at this beast of a mouse in the spinach at Subway today! Good thing we didn’t bite into it! AMAZING! WTF!! The manager was in shock!” Jones wrote in the post.

The county health department reassured customers who went to the restaurant earlier that they were unlikely to get ill due to the rodent found in the Subway sandwich.
