What Would You Do If You Find A Dead Rat In Your Soup?

It was a very disturbing experience for a pregnant woman who had gone out with her family for a meal in a popular Hotpot restaurant in China. She saw a dead rat in her soup after she had downed some bites of the meal.

After the incident, the restaurant allegedly offered her 5,000 yuan [N264,345.56] as compensation, and according to a local news channel that spoke to her husband, Known as Mr Ma, he declined. He wants his wife to receive a full body check-up before he settles for an amount.


Mr Ma also alleged that one of the staff of the restaurant advised that his wife goes for an abortion if he was worried about the baby’s health and offered to give him 20,000 yuan [N1.05m].
