Mumbai, June 13, 2024: A shocking incident of a human finger being found in an ice cream has been reported from Mumbai. A woman residing in the suburbs of Malad had ordered the cone ice cream online from Yummo Ice Creams, but was left shocked as she unwrapped it.


A photo shared online shows a human finger sticking out of the top of the ice cream.

According to a report in Free Press Journal, Malad resident Orlem Brendan Serrao (27), a doctor, had eaten half of the butter scotch ice cream when he sensed something wrong on his tongue. When he took a closer look, he found a human finger inside it. The ice cream was ordered by his sister online.

Serrao’s sister immediately informed the police about the incident. The police, in its initial probe, said that it was a human finger in the ice-cream. The police have now sent the finger for forensic investigation.

"I had ordered three cone ice creams from an app. One of them was a butterscotch ice cream of Yummo brand. After eating half of it, I felt a solid piece in my mouth. I thought it could be a nut or a chocolate piece and spat it out to check what it was," said Dr Serrao.

A careful examination of the "solid piece" left him in shock.

"I am a doctor so I know how body parts look like. When I carefully examined it, I noticed the nails and fingerprint impressions under it. It resembled a thumb. I am traumatized," he said.

Dr Serrao immediately put the object in an ice pack so he could show it to the police and filed a complaint with the Malad police.

A case has now been registered against Yummo for food adulteration and endangering human life. The cops have sent the ice cream for investigation and the finger for forensic analysis.

The presence of a body part in the food item has also raised suspicion of a bigger crime, which the police are investigating.

Yummo Ice Creams, which was launched in 2012, was co-founded by Walko Food Co. Ltd.
