The mother wrote on Facebook and said her boys love the "Chinese food" from Little Tokyo at the food court in Poughkeepsie Galleria. However, that has changed due to what she says they found in their food during their most recent visit to Little Tokyo.

Once one of her sons started eating, he noticed a bug in his food. The mother says she looked and realized the bug was a cockroach, according to a Facebook post that was posted on Sunday around 2 p.m. and has been shared over 2,200 times.

A spokesperson from Little Tokyo confirmed the incident happened. The spokesperson went on to tell Hudson Valley Post the chef working that day has been let go, adding the company is "very sorry for what happened," and is working to make sure something like this never happens again.
