Multinational pizza restaurant chain Domino's came in for sharp criticism after a Twitter user posted a video purportedly showing a mop and a toilet brush hanging above the pizza dough, almost touching it. 

The Twitter user, Sahil Karnany, who said he was an IT graduate, posted the video in reply to a July 24 tweet where he had first shared photos of the pizza dough. He wrote, "This is how @dominos_india serves us fresh Pizza! Very disgusted. Location: Bangalore." 

He claimed that the outlet in question was on Hosa Road in the city. He also tagged the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India, Ministry of Health, Karnataka Health Minister Dr K Sudhakar and Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya.
