But the investigators did not find any rodent in the premises of the restaurant.
The video that was posted by Cortes had a caption of, “Please do not buy food in Yihi Japan that is inside Polaris mall. I bought a Teriyaki Chicken and I got a baby rat cooked with the food. It’s disgusting. Please share so that no one buys food there, and prevent someone from getting sick.”
The video that was posted by Cortes has gathered more than 1.1 million views, many of the comments were telling Deyanira to ask for legal advice.
Here are some of the comments in the video:
An fb user said, “Is there carbs or gluten in those rats?”
Another fb user said, “I don’t understand. Was it not cooked? Did they charge extra for it?”
A third one added, “They didn’t charge more for the extra protein? I need some of this in my life!!”
The Washington Prime Group, the company that owns the mall where Yihi Japan was located at released a statement about the incident and said that they are not going to renew the lease of the restaurant.
A spokesman of the group said, “We are working closely with the Columbus Public Health Department as they investigate this incident. Washington Prime Group, the owner of Polaris Fashion Place, is currently evaluating the option of not renewing a lease with this tenant.”
