A picture recently surfaced on Taco Bell’s Facebook page of what appears to be one of the chain’s employee licking a bunch of tacos.
While the circumstances surrounding the public display of taco shell affection are unclear — as Consumerist notes, it’s possible the shells were destined for the trash — it may make us think twice before buying our next Doritos Locos Taco.
Taco Bell spokesman Rob Poetsch wrote in an e-mail statement to The Huffington Post that the company has “strict strict food handling procedures and zero tolerance for any violations.”
“When we learned of the situation we immediately contacted this restaurant’s leadership and although we believe it is a prank and the food was not served to customers, we are conducting a full scale investigation and will be taking swift action against those involved.”
This is disgusting, prank or no prank. YUCK!
