Mouse Enjoys Whole Foods Meat

A mouse enjoying a slab of raw meat at the Columbus Circle Whole Foods was recently spotted by a shopper who decided to share her experience in a short video. TikTok user (and former Whole Foods shopper) DefineBritt shared the clip on Monday, May 24, and it’s racked up 1.8 million views since.

This also appears to be her first TikTok video, so if she’s looking to make a career out of it she’s certainly off to a good start. DefineBritt also has a Youtube channel where she posted an in-depth analysis of the incident.

In the TikTok video, the mouse can be seen enjoying some Osso Bucco Veal, which is priced at $22.99.

After the incident went viral, a Whole Foods spokesperson told Eat This, Not That that they were taking the situation seriously.

“We immediately removed and disposed of all products in the case, performed a deep cleaning, and brought in a third-party service for a thorough inspection,” the spokesperson told the food publication. “The store diligently followed our detailed protocol in response and continues to work closely with our food safety team.”

In the comments section, DefineBritt said she left immediately without making a purchase, and she doesn’t plan to go back. At least to this location.

In more pleasant Columbus Circle food news, signage was recently spotted at 58th and Broadway for a new Farinella location.
