Restaurant lost $190 million in value after dead rat found in soup

Restaurant lost $190 million in value after dead rat found in soup”

Waiter, there's a rat in my soup!

The husband, identified only as Mr. Ma by local outlet Kankan News, said a staffer had the gall to say his wife should get an abortion if she was anxious about the baby, offering over $2,000 for the procedure.

The woman and her husband anxious the rat brew would affect their baby, since the mother had already taken a couple gulps of the soup when she made the horrifying discovery at Xiabu Xiabu on September 6.

Reportedly, the owner offered 5,000 yuan in compensation until hearing that one of the diners was pregnant.

The woman's husband, Mr Ma, said he alerted restaurant staff to the situation and was offered cash for abortion if they were anxious about the health of the baby. The patrons, Mr. Ma and his family, were having dinner at the hotpot chain in Shandong province. He would be ready to negotiate with them after they were cleared of any health issues from the dead rat incident.

Photos of the incident made their way online and netizens couldn't be more disgusted by what they saw. "I'm never going to eat hotpot outside again", said one user.

"I feel like vomiting", wrote one person.

"If something happens to her baby how are they going to compensate her?"

In a statement released to the South China Morning Post, Xiabu Xiabu said it had always placed great emphasis on food security and would make any necessary improvements.

According to a report from Chinese outlet Kanka News, the market value of Xiabu Xiabu has been on a downward trend since August.

Hotpot, a bubbling Value-Added Tax of broth in which diners dip pieces of meat and other morsels, is a beloved family meal in China, especially when the weather starts to cool down.

In a statement published on 8 September on Weibo, which has since been deleted, the restaurant chain stated that a preliminary investigation had found that restaurant hygiene or operational reasons were not responsible for the rat ending up in the dish.

Typical ingredients in hotpots include thinly sliced meat, tofu, vegetables and seafood.
