Internet users were aghast after photos of what looked like “an alien” found in a Rice Dream carton were posted on Sunday.
Netizens speculated what the foreign object in the drink could be, with one commenter suggesting that it “looks like some mega magnified alien cells,” on Facebook.
Anthony Tsang, who posted the pictures, said: “When I saw it, my domestic helper and my wife were shocked. Then we were in a panic. My wife cried several times because she was so worried. But my two sons did not feel sick immediately after. The hygiene department would not specifically follow up with the case. We can only wait for a report from the FEHD [Food and Environmental Health Department].”
