Dead Rat In Soup Causes Chinese Restaurant Chain To Lose $190M

The well-known chain, Xiabu Xiabu, was closed for an investigation by health officials after the incident occurred and stock hit the lowest level in nearly a year after news spread, the BBC reports.

The outlet initially offered her compensation of 5,000 yuan ($729). Ma alleges that restaurant staff offered the couple cash for an abortion if they were anxious about the health of the baby after eating the rat soup.

The woman's husband, named as Mr Ma, said restaurant staff had told him: "If you are anxious about the baby, then we'll give you 20,000 yuan to abort it", according to Shanghai-based Kankan News.

The outlet in Shandong province has now been temporarily suspended, a BBC report said on Thursday.

Photos of the boiled rat quickly spread on Chinese social media site Weibo, where users reacted with anger and disgust. Some users said that they would never eat there ever again.

On 11 September, the company's share price hit its lowest level since October a year ago. "I can't believe this", another commented. "Is a life worth only 20,000 yuan?" In a statement published on Sunday on the Chinese messaging platform WeChat, the bureau said that while it found no traces of rats, the restaurant had committed violations related to stagnant water and buying food from unlicensed suppliers. It's a fun, sociable meal popular across China - a country with much regional variation in cuisine - and chains are cropping up alongside mom-and-pop stalls.

Though hotpot has gained in popularity in recent years, customers across China have complained about questionable hygiene standards at hotpot chains, particularly over restaurants reusing hotpot broth with new customers.
