A Wendy’s employee fed up with her store’s lack of hygiene decided to capture it all on video after she found a live rodent running around the hamburger buns. Now, the fast food chain has had to launch an investigation to get to the bottom of this mess.
“I just hear ‘mouse, mouse, mouse!'” Skylar Frame, who works at a Wendy’s in Catoosa, Oklahoma, told KJRH-TV. “I go back there and the mouse is moving around in the big buns.”
Frame claims she also found feces in the packaging, but management did nothing.
A second employee named Samantha Niebelink told KJRH-TV this was not the first time the workers have had an encounter with mice. Niebelink said when she found another mouse running around the buns section earlier this month, a manager told her to just “take a new rack.”
“That was just disgusting because last time there was rat feces, it was dribbling underneath every other rack,” Niebelink added.
Both Frame and Niebelink have threatened to quit because of the stores’ multiple health code violations, which includes an instance when a worker allegedly continued to make sandwiches despite having a cold and not wearing gloves. “I thought I was going to throw up,” Niebelink said.
Wendy’s told KJRH-TV that a sanitary environment is a top priority for them. “Nothing is more important than the safety of our employees and customers,” the company said in a statement. “We have stringent procedures in place to ensure a safe and well-maintained restaurant.”
Other fast food chains, besides Wendy’s, have come under fire for rodents roaming around its stores in the past. On June 6, video of a mouse poking around a Burger King in Delaware quickly went viral.
Last August, another woman filed a lawsuit against Chick-fil-A when she bit into what she thought was a burnt bun, but found a rat inside of her sandwich instead.
