A woman was disgusted when she found a fly in her beef noodle soup after she had finished more than half of the meal.

Stomper Audrey bought a bowl of beef noodle soup from Odeon Beef Noodles at Junction 8 in Bishan on July 12 at about 6pm.

"After eating three-quarters of the bowl of beef noodles, I realised there was a f***ing big fly in the soup," she said.

"What's worse is the attitude of the staff, food court manager and the stall owner who took the matter lightly and even claimed the bug had gotten in after I had started eating.

"They tried to brush me off by returning me the amount I paid.

"They even tried to chase me away by claiming they would be changing and pouring away the soup while still continuing to sell it after receiving feedback."

In response to a Stomp query, the Singapore Food Agency (SFA) said they had inspected the food establishment and did not detect any food safety lapses.

"Nonetheless, the food operator was reminded to ensure their premises is clean and well-maintained and that their food handlers adhere to good personal hygiene and food handling practices," an SFA spokesman said.

"Food safety is a joint responsibility.

"While SFA puts in place and enforces the regulatory measures, food operators must play their part by adhering to good food hygiene and preparation practices.

"Members of the public who come across any potentially errant food operator should report to SFA via the online feedback form.

"As part of the enquiry and gathering of evidence, SFA may engage the feedback provider for more details and will not hesitate to take enforcement action if sufficient evidence has been obtained."
