The customer, Kishore, tweeted on September 12 that he found the insect inside a slice of chocolate cake while his daughter was eating the dessert at the IKEA store. He also posted a video of the cake. On September 19 he again posted a video claiming that no step has been taken by the municipal agency.

The Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation has reportedly fined the Swedish furniture major Rs 5,000 based on Kishore’s complaint.

IKEA on Thursday expressed regret over the incident. “In our Hyderabad restaurant when a customer was eating a chocolate cake which he bought, a fly was seen on the cake which eventually flew away. We regret this and apologise to our customer for the unfortunate experience. We are taking steps to avoid such occurrences,” an IKEA spokesperson said.
