It’s very much likely that first name that pops up in your mind while taking of Pizzas is that of Domino’s. Known for its delicious mouth watering pizzas, this food chain is loved by the foodies all over the world.However, what happened with a Delhi Guy Rahul Arora makes us question the quality of ingredients that the chain uses.
Rahul has uploaded a video of live insects crawling out of a Domino’s Pizza seasoning packets. Rahul warned everyone with a video saying:’#BEWARE! All lovers of Domino’s Pizza India’s oregano seasoning, like myself. This is what they make you eat…‘
Rahul ordered Domino’s Pizza online on 8th September from Domino’s Pizza, DLF City centre, MG Road outlet. On the very next day when he opened the leftover seasoning packets, He was totally shocked and disgusted from what he saw. There were live insects in four remaining oregano sachets.
NDTV Quoted Rahul, “The insects are very tiny and can be easily mistaken for herbs as they don’t move much and have the similar texture to that of the herbs. It’s only when I suspected something wrong and poked the seasoning with my finger to check, that they scattered.”
Here is the video that Rahul shared on Facebook :
Domino’s also replied to his post with an apology.
Here is the screenshot of comment
Rahul claimed that he received a call from the pizza joint offering him to replace his order. “I told them that it’s not a late home delivery complaint. We fell ill on consuming their contaminated food. The issue should not be trivialized,” he told to NDTV.
As per his Facebook post, he has filed a complaint with Department of Consumer Affairs and is waiting for their response. NDTV quoted Rahul as saying,”I wonder what would have happened if this happened in the US.The chalta hai attitude towards Indian consumers should end.”
In a statement to NDTV, Domino’s Pizza said that they maintain the strictest hygiene and quality standards in their products and processes.
We thank Rahul for being an aware citizen and for raising his voice against the wrong and taking it forward. However, Domino’s response of replacing it with pizza was not only inappropriate but also reflects how seriously they take their hospitality. Instead, they should have taken proper action against the outlet which sold the defective food items.
A report by moneycontrol.com says that shares of Jubilant Foodworks’ lost over 6 percent intraday on Wednesday after Deutsche Bank raised concerns on bugs being found in Domino’s Pizza’s seasoning sache.
The Indian Feed urges its audience to stand against such issues and raise their voice.
