Wendy's Employee Posts Shockingly Gross Image to Facebook

Warning: if you have a weak stomach, and you eat at Wendy's fast food chain, you might not want to look at this footage. It's positively repulsive. An employee of one restaurant filmed something she discovered in a bag of hamburger buns: a live mouse. The video is so disturbing that Wendy's stock is dropping since the image went viral.

The employee works at a restaurant in Catoosa, Oklahoma. The employee, named Sky Frame, knew she would be risking her job by posting the footage, but she couldn't in good conscience let people eat at the establishment without warning them. She said it's happened more than once.

Frame filmed the mouse in the bag at her restaurant, but she's found bun bags loaded with mouse feces. A friend of hers at another Wendy's sent a video they took at their store of a live mouse inside a bun bag. There are also often mice found around the store.

Frame says that she doesn't feel comfortable serving food with the mouse infestation escalating. But rodents aren't the only problem, according to the employee.

In her two years at the restaurant, Frame says she has witnessed employees touching food without gloves, smoking cigarettes near their work stations and putting them down on the station. She says managers let the unsanitary behavior slide, and that the restaurant needs to ramp up its efforts with exterminators.

The whistle blower says she has no ill will against Wendy’s. She doesn’t want to be fired, but she can’t in good conscience continue serving food prepared in these conditions. The buns are still being used, despite the rodent problem, and employees are disregarding safe food handling laws. She is worried that someone will get sick.

No word yet on whether Frame is facing any disciplinary actions for posting the video or revealing what was going on behind the scenes at her restaurant, but Wendy’s says they are taking care of the issue.

"Our franchisee is aware of this situation and is taking this matter very seriously," said the company in a statement. "They immediately launched an investigation with their pest control vendor and internal quality assurance experts to ensure immediate and appropriate action is taken. We have stringent procedures in place to ensure safe and well-maintained restaurants."

The company also notes that a health inspector came by and that they passed with flying colors.

“This is an isolated incident at the restaurant; it did not happen at the vendor or distribution levels,” said a spokesperson.

Just as the video of the mouse went viral, Wendy's stocks dropped, according to Market Insider. "Mouse and other pest sightings at fast-food chains can cause major problems for companies. Wendy's shares dropped close to 1% on Monday as publications reported on the footage of the mouse," a report read.

Frame has gotten some backlash with people claiming that the footage is fraudulent. Some Wendy's workers have blasted the recent high school graduate for her video.

Some customers were grateful that Frame gave them the heads up about the situation. " I am proud of you baby girl! Thank you for standing up for what is right!" said one.

"Thank you for doing the right thing young lady," said another.
