Mouse found baked in bread sold at BJ's...

A man in North Carolina has found a mouse baked inside a package of Hot Dog buns sold at BJ's Wholesale Club.
BJ’s Wholesale Club has pulled thousands of bread products from 44 stores in three states after we called the company to inform them of what a customer believes he found when he went to make dinner.

A spokeswoman for BJ’s also sent a statement, it reads, “BJ’s first priority is the health and safety of our members. We deeply regret Mr. Van Dyne’s experience as he described it to us. The Arnold Potato Hot Dog Rolls come to us prepackaged from George Weston Bakeries and are placed directly on our shelves by George Weston employees. We have contacted George Weston Bakeries and they are investigating this matter. George Weston has informed us that the product under investigation was manufactured at their facility in Plant City, Florida. As a precaution, we are removing all potentially effected products made by the George Weston Plant City, Florida facility.”

BJ's Store Closings...

From the State, South Carolina

From staff reports

South Carolina's only BJ’s Wholesale Club will close today in Greenville.
The Massachusetts-based chain announced last week that it will close the store on Woodruff Road for failing to meet sales expectations, company spokeswoman Maria Fruci told The Greenville News.
BJ's operates 178 wholesale clubs in 16 states. The Greenville store opened in 2000 and employs about 60.
Fruci told the Greenville paper the company has no plans to close any additional clubs.
BJ's members in the Greenville area will receive pro-rated membership fee refunds
 What are your thoughts?  We've gotten a few email's asking if we've heard any rumors that would affect the NY/NJ area, we'll keep everyone posted.  But what's the feeling around the clubs?

Here's an article regarding the development that will overtake once BJ's vacates.
