“When we cut (the lemon), it was okay. It’s our fault for not seeing it when it went out to the table, and then they took the video.”
Meanwhile, Jim Boyce, general manager of Produce Express — the restaurant’s supplier since 2007 — said that the lemon was not from them.
“I’ve been doing this for 30 years and I have never come across insects inside of our lemons. We have never had one report of lemons being infested with maggots or worms. We are USDA-certified and have passed all of our health inspections,” Boyce told the Press Tribune.
It is unclear how Blue Nami plans to redeem itself, but Lui mentioned of unspecified promotions in the future.
