Burger King Employee Posts Photo Of Himself Stepping In Lettuce, Gets BustedAn anonymous 4chan user and Burger King employee posted a photo of himself stepping in bins of lettuce to the site on the evening of July 16. The original poster captioned the image with "This is the lettuce you eat at Burger King."
From Burger King:
Burger King’s Manager of Global Communications, Denise Wilson, sent Fox 8 News the following statement this morning;“Burger King Corp. has recently been made aware of a photo posted on a social networking site that allegedly shows a BURGER KING® restaurant employee violating the company’s stringent food handling procedures. Food safety is a top priority at all BURGER KING® restaurants and the company maintains a zero-tolerance policy against any violations such as the one in question.
The restaurant where this photo was allegedly taken is independently-owned and operated by a BURGER KING® franchisee. The franchisee has taken swift action to investigate this matter and terminated the employee involved in this incident.”
I can't get over the fact that they tracked this kid down in 15 mins. I realize they didn't get a name or anything, but they found the exact Burger King he took the picture at. Really makes you think about posting anything. And more to the point. I am now terrified of fast food places because of dumb stuff like this. Who knows what you are going to be treated to when you stop for a burger or milkshake.
Fired? That's it? There should be jail time for this type of reckless endangerment. Goofy punk.
And folks look at my wife and I funny when we say grace over our food when we are in restaurants.
Makes good sense to us to ask God to bless what we are about to consume,given stuff like this.
