  • The rat was found at the hot pot restaurant chain Xiabu Xiabu in Weifeng China

When her husband alerted the staff, they allegedly offered the couple 20,000 yuan (S$4,000) to get an abortion if they were anxious about their baby's health, KanKan News reported.

The woman and her husband were eating at the popular chain Xiabu Xiabu on September 6 when she discovered the dead rat in the hotpot, South China Morning Post reported.

Photos and video of a dead rat found at a branch of Xiabu Xiabu - boiled, hairless with legs outstretched - sandwiched between a pair of chopsticks after being fished out of a Value-Added Tax of broth have since circulated on Chinese social media.

Mr Ma also alleged that one of the staff had suggested his wife get an abortion if she was anxious about the baby's health, and offered him 20,000 yuan for the procedure.

The Shandong outlet was later shut down by local authorities for investigations.

Kankan News quoted her husband as saying restaurant staff had told him: "If you are anxious about the baby, then we'll give you 20,000 yuan (NZ$4444) to abort it".

Users of Chinese social media site Weibo reacted to the photos and video with disgust, with one person writing: "I feel like vomiting. I'm never going to eat hotpot outside again".

Ma said he and his wife went to the hospital where she had a checkup to ensure the baby was healthy.

An inspection was immediately undertaken at the restaurant, but there was reportedly no trace of rats.

Shares of Xiabu Xiabu in Hong Kong plunged 12 percent Monday and Tuesday causing the company's market value to plummet around £145 million. "Is a life worth only 20,000 yuan?" Over the years, rats falling from the ceiling and climbing up customers trousers at hot pot restaurants around China appear to have done little to diminish Chinese diners' appetite for the simmering soup. Ms Gao said the chain had always taken great care over the quality and safety of its food.
