A British bakery that admitted to selling a loaf of bread containing two baby mice, droppings and hair was fined $12,000 in England Thursday.
Magistrates also ordered British Bakeries to pay $6,000 in court costs after it pleaded guilty to supplying food unfit for human consumption, the BBC said.
The loaf of sliced brown bread was purchased by a 41-year-old woman in Marlborough in September last year.
One judge said he found the incident particularly distasteful.
"We feel this offence was made more serious because of the nature of the contamination which involved new-born rodents being found in the bread," he said upon sentencing.
Among the bakery's numerous national brands is Teletubbies Tubby Toast.
