Chennai Man Finds Blood-Stained Bandaid In His Order, Swiggy Suspends Services From Restaurant

In a disgusting incident that took place in Chennai, a customer found a blood-stained bandaid in the food he ordered through Swiggy. 
 

 

On Sunday, Balamurugan had placed an order for Chicken Schezwan Chopsuey from Chop N Stix in Selaiyur through Swiggy and only after eating half of his food, he realised that a used bandaid had been inside the noodles.
 
 
In a Facebook post, Balamurugan expressed his disgust and wrote, ‘Contacted restaurant and they aren't sensitive and offering a replacement for the food! Who again wants to eat such contaminated food! Tried to contact Swiggy, no option to call them directly through the app for already delivered food and the only option is to chat but they aren't responding either! Want to badly sue both restaurant and Swiggy too for partnering with a restaurant which doesn't practice general hygienic method like using hand glove or not allowing any kitchen staff with injured fingers/hands in the kitchen!’
 
 
 
Speaking to TNM, Balamurugan said that he hoped to raise awareness among people through his post. He said “I'm expecting the restaurant to take corrective measures, Swiggy to fill gaps in their process of selecting partners, and also I would definitely like to ensure that I've not been infected or that I've contracted any infectious disease by way of eating that food. They have responded to my Facebook post and I was told that they will investigate and get back to me.”

 

Balamurugan also said that he is doing fine health-wise, “There has been no specific update on the particular incident from Swiggy or the restaurant. The last update from Swiggy was that they will investigate and get back to me in a day or two.”
 
He also said that Swiggy continued to take orders from the same restaurant “without stopping the service for the restaurant until their vendor does re-audit or quality checks.”
 

A statement from Swiggy in response to this article read, 'We understand that consumers trust Swiggy with their health and safety, and are committed to working with restaurants to ensure that only hygienic and quality food is delivered to them. We deeply regret the issue faced by one of our users and apologise for the angst it has caused'.
 
'This is certainly not the level of service we intend to promote. While the restaurant has acknowledged a lapse at its end, based on the complaint, we have suspended this outlet pending further investigation by an external agency. Swiggy conducts stringent third-party hygiene audits across our restaurant partner network- regularly, and is invested in working with them to ensure a safe and delightful food experience for our consumers.'
