An alleged employee of a Burger King location in Northwest Ohio posted a nauseating image of someone standing atop two lettuce bins, with the caption: “This is the lettuce you eat at Burger King.”
The image was posted to the website 4Chan on July 16. Yahoo’s Shine blog said it took the hacking group Anonymous a mere 15 minutes to track down the alleged culprits and expose them.
Burger King is playing this one close to the chest, telling media outlets that food safety is a top priority and that three employees had been fired as a result. It didn’t comment on the circumstances surrounding the picture. Thus far it’s been all quiet on the social media front, with the company’s Twitter feed and Facebook page avoiding the topic.
