FREDERICK COUNTY, Md. - We have an update to a story we brought you earlier this month about a Frederick County woman who says she found a dead mouse in her popcorn. 

As we've reported, after Joanna Mullinix found a dead mouse in a bag of Smartfood Delight Popcorn she called the popcorn company and the health department.

Since then, both the Health Department and the FDA have started an investigation. But officials say they believe this is an isolated incident. 

The popcorn company, Frito Lay, sent WHAG a statement on the matter, stating they've been in touch with the consumer and are working to resolve the issue.
