    Default Ohio Burger King Lettuce Incident



    “This is the lettuce you eat at Burger King,” read the caption of the photo an Ohio Burger King employee posted on the online image board 4chan on Monday.

    The photo showed someone in black pants and black shoes standing atop two tubs of the fast food restaurant’s lettuce.

    Within minutes of the posting, the site’s users had extracted GPS data from the photo and worked to pinpoint the exact franchise location where the photographer had acted in Mayfield Heights, Ohio.

    They then began to forward the posting around to local news outlets in the area.

    The three employees who were involved have since been fired, according to a statement from Burger King’s corporate headquarters.

    Burger King said the employee in the photo is shown violating “the company’s stringer food handling procedures.”

    “Food safety is a top priority at all Burger King restaurants and the company maintains a zero-tolerance policy against any violations such as the one in question,” the statement said.

    The Burger King manager at the franchise told ABCNews.com he had no comment on the incident.

    Posting that on 4chan was the second stupid thing those three did that day. The first was standing on the lettuce in the first place.

    Dumb, dumb, dumb.

    I like how they were caught pretty quickly. Makes you wonder what you eat at those places.

    Great. I just had my first Whopper in years from that location just last week. I almost never eat fast food, but I was pressed for time and hungry. The line at McDonalds was backed up out into the street, so I went next door. Wonder if I got any tainted lettuce that day.

    "Hey, I know something fun! Let's go stand in the lettuce!"

    These douchebags have the collective IQ of a head of lettuce.

    I always eat BK but the extent of my whopper is meat, cheese, and ketchup. I don't get any condiments because I'm picky, but now I feel better about not eating lettuce with mine

    You just insulted lettuce everywhere. You should apologize.

    When I was in the Navy, the people assigned mess detail as servers on my ship were the lowest ranked and often were assigned there as a punishment. They got worked like dogs, and generally had pretty bad attitudes. You did not want to make them mad as you would run the risk of your food or drink getting "rimmed", which is just as horrific as it sounds.

    People really like their McDonalds, eh?

    As for the incident itself, I'd like to think this stuff doesn't happen as often as we think it does, but I'm probably wrong. I've worked in food service for over 5 years in high school/college and I never saw anything unacceptable, but I guess I have to be realistic. I guess I come from the camp of "what you don't see won't hurt you," but even I have my limits. Example:

    My wife and I were at a Mexican restaurant a couple months ago and were sitting near the kitchen. About halfway through the meal, my wife pointed out the can of Raid that was on top of the cooler that was easily seen through the open doorway into the kitchen.

    We haven't been back since.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.
