Even if you don't eat it often, we all consume fast food at some point. I know for me it's usually when I go on road trips. I'll stop somewhere to get something quick and easy, then hit the road once again.
I can understand why people try to limit their fast food intake, especially when you think about what really goes into the food, but some restaurants have a better reputation than others. For example, I used to trust places like Wendy's or Chipotle, just because I felt like they ran their businesses right.
Then it came out that Chipotle had their systems hacked and compromised customer credit card data, and I refused to eat there again. But I still had Wendy's, right? Wrong.
A new video from an Oklahoma Wendy's will surely turn you off the chain for sure. Employees at this location in Catoosa shared a video of a live mouse wriggling around inside a bag of hamburger buns at the fast food restaurant.
"I just hear 'mouse, mouse, mouse!'" Skylar Frame, an employee at the location said. "I go back there and the mouse is moving around in the big buns."
The bag was filled with mouse feces, and was extremely disgusting. However, according to Frame, management didn't feel like it was a big deal.
"The managers they're just like 'yeah we'll get to it, yeah it's not really that big of an issue.' My boyfriend's mom she called up later and said 'is there mice in your store?' The manager at the time, Lillian, she denied that," Frame said.
It's also not the first time a rodent has been found at this Wendy's either. Samantha Neibelink, another employee, posted her own video of a mouse found in a burger bun bag. But instead of getting a new bag, her manager told her to pick out the buns that hadn't been touched or contaminated.
"She told me 'just take a new rack and get the buns underneath,'" Neibelink recalled. "That was just disgusting because last time there was rat feces it was dribbling underneath every other rack."
If that's not enough to make your stomach turn, then listen to this!
"There was this one guy he was sick, he was a sandwich maker, and he was not wearing gloves," Niebelink said. "He was rubbing his nose, he was making them, and he didn't care if the buns were toasted or not, he was just throwing them out. I thought I was going to throw up."
Wendy's has since released a statement on the allegations of the mice, saying:
"We've been made aware of this situation and take these matters very seriously. immediately launched an investigation with our pest control vendor and internal quality assurance experts to insure immediate and appropriate action is taken.
They also noted that the local health department visited the morning after Frame found the mouse, and concluded that there were no health code violations.
