A Pizza Hut in Kermit, West Virginia, has lost their district manager. Why, you may ask? It appears that a TV station in the area, WOWK-TV, caught the manager peeing in one of the store’s sinks. Not just any sink, but apparently it is the same sink that is used to wash dishes — including the trays, pizza cutters, etc. Luckily for Pizza Hut customers, none of the food was fiddled with.
Unfortunately for fast food consumers, this isn’t the first time something like this has happened. in 2009, a video of a Domino’s went viral when he decided to pick his nose and put his… findings… in one of the pizzas he was making. And, in case you forgot, there was the video of a Taco Bell employee licking a stack of the taco shells… That would soon be consumed by their customers. Almost seems like a trend, no?
According to an article in USA Today, Pizza Hut said in a statement that, “Pizza Hut has zero tolerance for violation of our operating standards, and the local owner of the restaurant took immediate action and terminated the employee involved.”
What do you guys think? I have to admit, it makes me a little apprehensive as to when I decide to order my next Pizza Hut pizza. Are you order from Pizza Hut anytime soon?
