A man in Chennai found a blood-stained bandage in the food he had ordered through Swiggy on Tuesday.

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 realized that a used bandaid had been inside the noodles.

Taking to Facebook the man narrated his ordeal. “Contacted restaurant and they aren’t sensitive and offering a replacement for the food! Who again wants to eat such contaminated food!” he wrote.

“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(sic)!” he added.

Replying to Deenadayalan's post and comments, Swiggy later released a statement saying they have suspended the concerned restaurant pending further investigation by an external agency.

As the cases of adulteration in food ordered online are on a rise and peoples health are taking a toll it becomes important for people to take a stern stand against any such condition and become informed consumer.


Assistant Manager of the restaurant also commented on the post stating that Balamurugan is provided with a refund.

“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 apologize 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," Swiggy said.
