There’s nothing worse than when employees play with people’s food but how about when an employee bathes in the very area where your food is prepared?

That’s actually what allegedly took place at a Wendy’s restaurant in Milton, Florida. A Snapchat video of a male employee taking a bath in a sink full of soapy water has gone viral. The restaurant owners are currently investigating the incident.


According to reports, the employee no longer works there and the owners said in a statement that they’re looking into the incident. “We are taking this incident seriously and it is obviously totally unacceptable. This was a prank by a person who no longer works at this restaurant, and who clearly did not use good judgment. We are taking this opportunity to reinforce our very strict quality procedures with our restaurant team.”

Mike Johnson, director of marketing for the company, would not comment further on the matter.

Employees can be heard laughing in the background of the video while one female repeatedly said “take a bath.” The employee hopped into the sink full of water and was handed a paper towel to “wash” his armpits. He then used the paper towel to wash other parts of his body.

According to Patrick Fargason, communications director for the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation, the Division of Hotels and Restaurants was also notified about the incident late Tuesday. Fargason said inspectors planned to go to the Wendy’s to investigate it.


An investigation report was published by 3 p.m. Wednesday and the report showed that the restaurant’s manager was instructed on sanitation, safety requirements and the importance of active managerial control.

The restaurant passed the inspection.

The Wendy’s remained open throughout the day Wednesday as customers continued to order food.

The woman who shared the video on her private Facebook page said she did so because she felt the public had the right to know what was happening while the business was operating.

“The actions in the video were appalling and I felt like the public had the right to know … ,” she said to the Daily News through Facebook messenger.
