14th October 2020 – (Hong Kong) A mini roach was found in a salad box purchased by one of our readers, M.J. today. The HK$84 salad was purchased at 11.30am today from simplylife Café at Shop B32, B1/F, Landmark Building, 12-16 Des Voeux Road, Central today and the customer was shocked to see the cockroach in the salad.
An employee named Shirley immediately asked the customer if M.J. wanted another box as a replacement but M.J. refused due to loss of appetite. The customer urged the food establishment to be more cautious as salad is a raw food and the incident is unforgivable under the current epidemic situation.
The customer has yet to report the incident to the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department. simplylife Café is owned by Maxim’s Caterers Limited.
