Mumbai: Cadbury India Ltd, the Indian arm of Mondelez International Inc., said it was examining an apparent instance of a worm being found in a bar of chocolate made by the company.

A picture posted on Twitter purported to show the infestation. Mint couldn’t immediately reach the consumer nor could it ascertain the veracity of the claim.

“We are looking into the matter," said a Cadbury spokesperson, adding that it had received a complaint and that the company was talking to the consumer. No details are available, she said.

In October 2003, Cadbury had to deal with bad publicity over worms in its flagship Cadbury Dairy Milk brand in some shops in Maharashtra and Kerala.
