Even more surprising is that when the packet was given to them, the rat was still alive. The delivery agent reached the house with a live rat in the packet and did not even know it.

Taking to Twitter, Nitin wrote, “Worst experience with @letsblinkit. Ordered a packet of bread on 1st Feb 2023 with a live rat inside. This is a warning to all of us.” Tagging @blinkitcares, Nitin further wrote, “If such item comes in 10 minutes delivery, I would prefer to wait for few hours rather than receive such item.” Along with this, Arora has also posted a picture of a rat in the packet.

“Yes, I can see, your concern is genuine. I deeply apologise to you for this issue. We have noted this and will escalate it from our end. Your feedback for this specific incident has been noted and we will surely take corrective measures to improve the same,” said the support executive.
