A Whopper of a Violation
Burger King has responded to a disturbing video taken by a customer at a Florida restaurant showing an employee cleaning tables with a mop which had just been used to swab floors.
Katie Duran had just finished eating at with her family when she saw the staffer lift the mop off the floor and use it to clean the tables. She took out her phone and captured it on video.
After the video was shared with Burger King, the chain issued a statement saying, "The action depicted in the video is unacceptable and not in line with our brand standards or operational procedures. We have strict protocols around cleanliness and food safety. The restaurant owner will be re-training his team on all operational protocols.” (WJXT-TV)
- It's a good thing someone caught the employee on video.
- It's pure laziness, and it probably goes on at other restaurants, too.
- It's probably not the first time the worker has done this, either.
