Restaurant Loses 190m in Value After Dead Rat Found in Soup
A popular Chinese restaurant chain has lost around $190m (£145m) in market value after a pregnant woman found a dead rat in her soup.
Hotpot restaurant Xiabu Xiabu’s stock hit its lowest level in almost a year, after photos of the dead rat being fished out of the broth with a pair of chopsticks quickly spread online. The outlet in Shandong province has now been temporarily suspended. The outlet reportedly offered her 5,000 yuan (£559, $729) as compensation.
