3 ON YOUR SIDE: Health department rules suspected rat at Chinese buffet is squid

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) - A photo circulating on social media accusing a local restaurant of violating health codes is false.

The person posted the photo of what they believed to be a rat's tail found in their food at Forbidden City on Gunbarrel Road.

The Hamilton County Health Department opened an investigation after Channel 3 contacted health inspectors about the photo.

Public Information Officer Bill Ulmer tells Channel 3 inspectors visited the restaurant Wednesday night and did not find any sign of a rat infestation. After taking a closer look at the photo, inspectors believe what was thought to be a rat's tail is actually a part of squid.

Ulmer says the restaurant has not violated any health codes.
