Rodent fur has been found in a batch of Mexico-made Heinz ketchup, according to the Brazilian health agency.
ANVISA said it has suspended sales, distribution and marketing of the tomato ketchup.
Some of the ketchup had been imported to Brazil last year but has been withdrawn.
The Mexican authorities have ordered an inspection of the factory where the batch was produced, according to the BBC.
Affected product was manufactured by Delimex of Mexico and imported by Coniexpress with a best before date of January 2014.
