The district manager of six West Virginia Pizza Huts was caught on a surveillance camera urinating in a food prep sink after hours at a Kermit location, according to WOWK TV.
The unnamed man was caught in the act Jan. 29. The pizza chain employee was first seen at a computer; he then walked over to the stainless steel sink, unzipped his fly, then let er rip! After lightening his bladderwithout washing his hands, the man turns on the faucet to wash away the evidence. He then heads back to his computer to resume what he was doing.
Health officials then shut down the Kermit location. Brett Vance, who is a city health official, told WOWK the restaurant will remain shuttered until it is thoroughly cleaned and there are reassurances of safeguards in place, which could take up to several weeks. A cleaning crew is flying in from Texas to clean and sanitize the location, as well as the other restaurants the district manager was in charge of, including Pizza Huts in Ceredo, Danville, Chapmanville and Logan.
Meanwhile, the corporate office of the fast food pizza chain swiftly released a statement regarding their pee-brain employee’s unsanitary act:
“Pizza Hut has zero tolerance for violations of our operating standards, and the local owner of the restaurant took immediate action and terminated the employee involved,” the company said in a statement. “While the isolated incident occurred during non-business hours and did not involve any food tampering, we follow strict safety and handling procedures and the restaurant has since been closed. We apologize to our customers of Kermit, West Virginia and those in our system who have been let down by this situation.”
