A video of a lizard strolling through sweets at an outlet of the famous Gourmet bakery has gone viral on the social media, exposing the food safety and hygienic standards at the bakery chain.
Subbayal Hussain, the customer who recorded the incident, in his Facebook post, said that the branch management asked him to delete the video when they learned of its existence. However, “they wasted some of the sweets in front of me,” he added.
It merits a mention here that Gourmet was fined twice, in 2014 and 2015, by the Punjab Food Authority (PFA) for serving unhygienic food.
Gourmet Foods is yet to issue a public statement in this regard.
