Dec. 11 (UPI) -- A tourist visiting Florida said his Uber Eats order came with an unwanted side -- a pair of soiled underwear.

The man, identified only as Leo, said he was visiting Miami for Art Basel when he placed an Uber Eats order for food from a local Japanese restaurant.


Leo said his driver left in a hurry after he picked up his food outside the hotel.

"I grabbed the food and right when I got the food she took off running and I was like, 'That was kind of odd,'" Leo told WPLG-TV.

He said the driver gave him a plastic bag that contained the paper bag of his food and a cloth item.

"I thought this, when I was pulling it out, this sure is a fancy napkin," Leo said.

The man said he quickly discovered the item was a pair of thigh-length underwear stained with what appeared to be feces.

"Disgusting, unhealthful, it's potentially deadly," Leo said. "What do you do if you find this in your food?"

Uber said Leo was given a refund and the incident is under investigation.


"What's been reported is very concerning. We are reviewing this order and reaching out to all parties involved to help understand what may have occurred. The courier has been removed from the app pending investigation," Uber said in a statement.

Leo said the incident has also been reported to Bal Harbor police.
