CHATTER AWAY: Overnight Open Thread

The Florida Daily News reports:

A video of a now-former Wendy’s employee bathing in an industrial sink at the franchise’s Milton location has gone viral overnight. The owners of the Wendy’s in Milton provided a statement about the incident Wednesday afternoon. Mike Johnson, director of marketing for the company, would not comment further.

“We are taking this incident seriously and it is obviously totally unacceptable,” the statement said. “This was a prank by a person who no longer works at this restaurant, and who clearly did not use good judgment. We are taking this opportunity to reinforce our very strict quality procedures with our restaurant team.”

The Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation, the Division of Hotels and Restaurants was notified about the incident. The restaurant’s manager was instructed on sanitation, safety requirements and the importance of active managerial control.
