Taco Bell is investigating a photo of an employee seen licking a large stack of shells, and the fast-food chain has come out with gloves on.

Worker Licks Taco Shells

The worker hasn’t been identified, but more than likely he has already been fired.

Surely, he wasn’t expecting a photo of his antics to show-up on his employers Facebook page, but it did.

The stomach turning photo was posted yesterday by “Jj O’Brien Nolan,” with the comment “This sure says a lot about your employees.”

Taco Bell spokesman Rob Poetsch told The Huffington Post that the company has, “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.”

Adelaide Neto Pereira from Toronto, Canada commented on the Taco Bell Community Facebook page, “Awhuch Taco Bell ! Licked tacos ? No thank you !”

Taco Bell Canada responded, “Hey Adelaide, we have strict food handling procedures and zero tolerance for any violations. We believe this is a prank, and the food was not served to customers. We are conducting an investigation and will be taking swift action against those involved.”
