Meat from human feet was allegedly served in a Chinese restaurant in Italy. The restaurant was accused of such horrific activity after a waiter posted an image of two severed and partially decomposed human feet in a blue bowl. The photo, taken in the restaurant’s kitchen, was soon posted on social media.
The restaurant is located in Padua, northern Italy. The issue surfaced after a customer from Slovenia went to the restaurant with some friends. They then asked for bear paws, a Chinese delicacy. According to the waiter, who was not identified in the reports, the tourists were served with the human feet instead of the paws, as per the Daily Mail.
Italy: Restaurant Serving Human Feet
The disturbing image circulated quickly on social media. An Italian customer saw the photo and reported it to the authorities. While investigating the restaurant, police and food standards officials discovered 55 lbs of meat and frozen fish of questionable origin.
In fact, law enforcement authorities discovered dirt as well. They found grease all over the refrigerators. They found grease on the floors and on the oven, too. Frog legs and crab meat were also discovered in packages beyond expiry dates. It was still unclear whether the restaurant was still legally allowed to operate.
Authorities have consulted a forensic pathologist for answers regarding the picture. The experts claimed that the feet in the photo appeared human. However, they are still investigating the image’s origin.
Italy: Human Meat In Nigeria
In other news, on February 2014, two human heads wrapped in cellophane were discovered in a hotel restaurant. Eleven people were arrested after a tip-off led police to make the discoveries. The event took place in Anambra, Nigeria. In addition, AK-47 guns and other weapons were seized from the place.
“I went to the hotel early this year, after eating, I was told that a lump of meat was being sold at N700, I was surprised,” said a pastor who ate there. “So I did not know it was human meat that I ate at such expensive price.”
It seemed like human flesh was being sold at that place. The price was reportedly quite high. Authorities claimed that roasted human head was also on the menu, as reported by Independent UK.
