J-R-N says it received the results late Friday night.
It says both analytical and forensic tests were done on the mouse, the chicken, and the breading used that night.
But the Cummings say according to the lab report the received today the test results seem inconclusive. And they say it's unfair the that J-R-N not only picked the lab, but paid for the test, and got the result first.

J-R-N Incorporated says lab tests reveal that the mouse died shortly before being breaded and cooked by an "undetermined process".
But the company says the conclusive proof is in the breading. Two samples of breading used on the night the Cummings purchased the chicken were sent to the lab.
