In a shocking event, a dead lizard has been allegedly found in a cake of Layers bakers in Faisalabad.
The customer who bought a chocolate cake from the bakery has shared a video on social media showing the lizard in the cake as proof.
Reports claim that customers approached the Layers Faisalabad to report the sickening incident. Amid the outrage, videos shot from mobile phone were posted on social media and they went viral, sparking outrage and urgency for a probe into the hygiene practices of the famous confectioner.
As the matter landed on social media and had everyone talking, Layers quickly shared a response, and called it false allegations circulating about the bakery items.
“We find ourselves in an unfortunate situation where our brand, Layers, has been subject to baseless allegations that aim to tarnish our hard-earned reputation…We take immense pride in the quality and hygiene of our products. Our factory adheres to the highest standards of cleanliness. It is technically impossible for foreign objects, such as the alleged lizard, to be found in our baked goods,” it said.
The company also warned of legal action against those involved in defamation of their brand according to the Cybercrime Laws of Pakistan.
Meanwhile, social media users showed their disgust and called on food safety authorities to take much-needed action against those responsible.
