It’s the kind of image that makes you cringe… surveillance video, allegedly capturing someone a California family claims is a DoorDash delivery driver, taking a sip of one of their family member’s drink.
In the video you see the driver walk up to the door, he then appears to sip some of the milkshake and wipe down the straw, before ringing the doorbell and handing the drink to the customer.
Rajesh Malhotra said the drink was for his 14-year-old son.
The teen said he drank the milkshake with some cookies, not realizing that a stranger had tried his drink.
The family said they had no idea what happened until the next morning when they looked at their security camera footage.
The Malhotras said they reached out to DoorDash about the incident.
A DoorDash spokesperson released this statement Friday, March 29 which reads:
“We sincerely regret that this incident fell short of the experience we strive to give our customers every day. We reached out to this customer immediately after being notified of this event three weeks ago. We have since taken appropriate actions, including deactivating the dasher from our platform for failing to follow and maintain our standards of food safety.”
DoorDash is a technology company that connects people with local businesses and does door-to-door delivery, according to its website.
