Meanwhile, the officials also issued notice to Murugan Idli Kadai outlet at Parrys based on a complaint.
“ I went to Murugan Idli Kadai outlet on Friday and ordered for meal. While eating, I found a worm in the rice. When asked about it, an in-charge of the outlet said, the food was not prepared there and it was brought from the kitchen at Ambattur. So, the worm would have entered the food while on transit. Then, I filed a complaint with Food Safety Department through their Whats App complaint number,” said, T R Prabhakaran.
