(Meredith) - A DoorDash driver was caught on camera appearing to take a sip of a milkshake just moments before delivering it to a California residence.
Homeowner Rajesh Malhotra, of Stockton, said he didn't realize what happened until the next morning when he checked the surveillance footage from his doorbell camera.
"I looked at it and saw the driver who delivered the food was sipping out of my son's Coldstone,'" Malhotra told KTXL-TV. “I was like, ‘Woah, that’s crazy. How could someone jeopardize the product like that, especially food?'"
The cookies-and-cream shake was for Malhotra's 14-year-old son, Rishab.
"My dad told me to check out the video from last night, and once I checked it out, I brushed my teeth five or six times," the teen said. "I felt really disgusted."
The family is now demanding an apology from DoorDash and a promise that it won't happen to someone else.
"We have trust between the company and the drivers," Malhotra said. "Once that trust is broken, we can’t go back."
He said he reported the incident to the company the next day and even provided a copy of the video. That was more than two weeks ago, and the family is still waiting for a response.
