Photos Show Fast-Food Restaurant Workers Bathing In Kitchen Sink, Pictures Turn Up At Pharmacy
ADVANCE, N.C. -- State law requires restaurant workers to keep their hands clean. Two employees of a Wendy's in Davie County took it a little
Health officials said the two workers were photographed bathing in a dishwashing sink at the fast-food restaurant in Advance. The sink has cleaning
jets and is normally used to wash pots, pans and other cookware.
Davie County Health Department Director Barry Bass said photographs of two men in swimsuits taking turns bathing in the large, bubble-filled sink
prompted an investigation. Bass said while he's never seen anything like it, the act didn't pose a health hazard.
Health officials said the restaurant manager assured them that the sink had been sanitized.
The pictures turned up at a CVS pharmacy. A photo technician alerted authorities.
So far, no comment from Wendy's.
