One woman from Chenghai District, China ordered a braised duck hotpot from an online food delivery platform.
She’d been eating with friends when one of them found a dead cockroach in the dish, reports said.
The woman says they removed the cockroach, and then started inspecting the broth.
The group of friends claimed they found more than 40 cockroaches.
The woman complained to the restaurant before reporting the case to the police – who are now investigating together with officials at the local Food and Drug Administration.
The restaurant has announced a 15-day suspension of business while investigations continue.
