Photo shows a Wendy's employee eating ice cream directly from machine
Nick Ut, Associated Press
Less than two weeks after a Taco Bell employee was fired for licking a stack of taco shells, the New York Daily News reports a photo has surfaced of a Wendy's employee guzzling ice cream straight from the restaurant's machine.
The photo, first published on Reddit, shows the employee squatting down to put his mouth on the ice cream dispenser.
"We don't know the exact date the photo was taken, but we believe in it was in May," Wendy's spokesman Bob Bertini told the New York Daily News in an email. "The incident was totally inappropriate, and we're taking it very seriously."
Gina Pace of the New York Daily News reports the employee is no longer with the company.
