Rat Spotted In Pasir Ris West Plaza FairPrice Bread Section, Supermarket Implements Pest Control

Rat Spotted At Pasir Ris West Plaza FairPrice Supermarket

For obvious reasons, supermarkets are one of the last places where we’d hope to run into a rat. After all, that’s the place from which many of us get our groceries and food supplies.

A TikToker, however, was going about her business doing just that when she spotted a large rat scurrying in the bread section of a FairPrice outlet in Pasir Ris.

FairPrice has since implemented pest control measures and assured customers that they take food safety and hygiene seriously.

When she approached the bread section of the supermarket, the rat’s long and thin tail could already be seen sticking out from the shelves.

But as she got closer, the rat ran deeper into the shelf and stood on some pre-packaged sandwiches.

Upon noticing the OP, the rat darted from the shelf towards another section of the supermarket.

Even though most people would be terrified of such a scene, the OP was able to see the humour in the situation. She joked that the rat was in the “wrong alley” as there wasn’t any cheese, and quipped that the rodent was “kinda cute”.

She added that she had informed staff at the supermarket and that they had notified pest control.
