    It's the holiday season and you have to expect everyone to indulge, including mice. There were reports of the little critters in snack bags, gnawing on dried fish and roaming the candy isles. Couple those citations with expired bacon, dented cans, dirty deli slicers, an unapproved George Foreman grill and you have this week's Clean Plates report.
