Nothing spreads like wildfire more than an embarrassing photo or video, which is too bad for these fast food chains with employees caught in acts that give health code inspectors the shivers.
In the latest fast food photo mishap, a district manager is shown in a surveillance video urinating in the kitchen sink of a Pizza Hut in a small town in West Virginia. The restaurant location in Kermit, which is on the border with Kentucky, has been closed since the video surfaced this week, though the incident was recorded several weeks ago.
The unnamed man oversees six Pizza Hut locations, according to WOWK-TV, a CBS affiliate.
Here's more about the incident captured on tape at the Pizza Hut and other images taken from other fast food publicity disaster.
A spokeswoman for Pizza Hut said the company is "embarrassed by the actions of this individual."
"Pizza Hut has zero tolerance for violations of our operating standards, and the local owner of the restaurant took immediate action and terminated the employee involved," Pizza Hut's statement read. "While the isolated incident occurred during non-business hours and did not involve any food tampering, we follow strict safety and handling procedures and the restaurant has since been closed permanently. We apologize to our customers of Kermit, West Virginia and those in our system who have been let down by this situation."
