On June 12, Brendan Ferrao, 26, had filed a complaint with the Malad police, and a case was registered under sections 272, 273 and 336 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) against Yummo Ice Creams.

Following the complaint, the company's management claimed the ice cream was manufactured at Fortune Dairy Industries Pvt Ltd in Indapur.

The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) and Food and Drug Administration (FDA) officials then visited the units in Indapur and Hadapsar. The FSSAI then suspended the license of Fortune Dairy Industries.

In another incident, a Noida woman claimed to have found a centipede inside an ice cream tub she ordered through an instant delivery app. The Noida food safety department took suo motu cognisance of the woman's social media post and reached out to her. The officials said they have collected samples of the brand's ice cream from the instant delivery company store for testing.
