After reporting earlier this week on the rubber glove allegedly found in a bubble tea, it seems you now need to check any bread snacks you purchase before you take a bite.
Last week, a customer of Paris Baguette, the renowned South Korean bakery chain, experienced this firsthand. After purchasing bread from the Jiading outlet, she found bite marks which she believed were left by mice, reports Shine.

The customer, named Lu, contacted the store the next day about the matter. To her surprise, the outlet denied the possibility of pests or mice, saying the bread was produced in the factory and they had nothing to do with it. At the same time, they did offer a refund. Seeking an explanation rather than compensation, Lu demanded further communication. However, the outlet refused the request, claiming they were too busy.
This week, the story took an interesting turn when Paris Baguette staff advised the media they had taken the matter seriously and visited Lu to express their regret. Nonetheless, Xinmin heard something completely different when interviewing Lu about this. "They never came," Lu angrily advised. "All I received was an apology letter via e-mail."
Currently, the Jiading District Market Supervision and Management Bureau has accepted Lu's request to investigate and will conduct a thorough inquiry.
