A Burger King location in DE was temporarily shut down last week after a video showing rodents running around bags filled with hamburger buns went viral on social media. The video shows two big rats running around the abandoned stash of buns. Their report says inspectors found rodent droppings in and outside the hamburger and chicken rolls.
Andrea Wojcik, acting as a spokeswoman for the Division of Public Health said the Office of Food Protection received a complaint about the restaurant on Friday, June 1. The restaurant had been closed because of rodent infestation and gross, unsanitary conditions.
A shocking video of rodents racing inside a package of Burger buns at Burger King has gone viral on social media.
Burger King also didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
A spokesperson for Burger King told Delaware Online that the restaurant was independently owned and operated.
