My name is***** and I am sorry to hear that you had a mouse in your pantry.
You were correct in discarding the foodstuffs that were obviously tainted by the mouse. The pasta that is in the sealed boxes is safe to cook and eat without fear. You would see signs of urine on the boxes if he peed on them and there would be a strong odor on the boxes. Also, cooking the pasta in boiling water will also destroy any dangerous bacteria or viruses that the mice may have carried if your food was exposed to them.
Does this help? What other questions do you have?
Were you able to clean up after your tiny home invasion? I hope there wasn't too much food wasted. Do you have any more questions for me?
