UberEats delivery person eats out of customers food bag

A video of an UberEats delivery person, eating food from a customer's order has gone viral. In the video, the UberEats delivery guy can be seen peeping inside the delivery bag. He then reaches into the bag, and can be seen devouring what looks like french fries.

The incident was noted by a friend of radio show host Eddie McGuire, who according to a Daily Mail report, told his listeners that he often felt that his food packet was light when he received it. The incident has been reported from Melbourne, Australia.

“This has been a bit of a common occurrence at my place where sometimes the Uber [Eats] comes in and you go ‘it’s a bit light’,’ McGuire said during the program explaining the incident.

His friend informed him of the incident after the delivery person's sly act was caught on the home security system. McGuire's co-host defended the delivery person, saying that the “poor guy” was probably not paid well and “if you can’t get a tip, you’ve gotta get a chip”.

UberEats has issued a statement over the incident, and said how food safety is important to them. “Delivery partners using UberEats are expected to comply with the Uber Eats community guidelines which explain they can lose access to the app for tampering with orders. We encourage users of the app to contact us with any concerns or issues they may be having and we will work to resolve these with them,” the statement read.
