Permanent Error Violates Company Doctrine

Feet-in-lettuce photo hits Internet, gets Burger King employees fired


The photo initially appeared on 4Chan, a website which allows users to post images and participate in discussion anonymously. It was captioned, "This is the lettuce you eat at Burger King."


Bryson Thornton, director of global communications for Burger King, confirmed that the photo was indeed taken at a Burger King location, though he clarified that it happens to be "independently owned and operated by a Burger King franchisee."


"The franchisee has taken swift action to investigate this matter and terminated the three employees involved in the incident," he said, after giving me a standard statement, which I suspect was painful to draft:


Burger King Corp. has recently been made aware of a photo that shows a Burger King restaurant employee violating the company’s stringent 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.
