Florida Uber Eats customer finds soiled underpants in food order


BAL HARBOUR, Fla. (WFLA/WPLG) – Most people tend to be understanding if delivered food arrives a bit cold or isn’t exactly right, but when it comes with a side of soiled underpants?

That’s no accident.

It happened to a man in Florida and he wants people to know what can happen to food between when you order it and when it gets to you.

“Who thinks that you’re going to get delivered somebody’s dirty underwear?” asked Leo, the unfortunate customer who received the underwear.

“Disgusting, unhealthful, it’s potentially deadly.”

Leo, who asked that his last name not be used, decided to order some dinner from a nearby Japanese restaurant.

When it arrived, he walked outside of his hotel to pick it up from the Uber Eats driver.

“I grabbed the food and right when I got the food she took off running and I was like, ‘that was kind of odd,’” he said.

When he opened the plastic bag back in his hotel room, his food was there, but sitting right here next to it was a pair of thigh-length underwear, clearly stained with what looked like feces.

Disgusted, he called Uber, the restaurant and the police department.

Uber sent this statement, saying: “What’s been reported is very concerning. We are reviewing this order and reaching out to all parties involved to help understand what may have occurred. The courier has been removed from the app pending investigation.”

Uber also gave Leo a full refund on the order.
