Fans of Pixar’s Ratatouille have been clamoring for a sequel to the loveable tale of the anthropomorphic rat that dreams of becoming a chef since it raked in over $600 million at the box office in 2007.
It appears a Wendy’s franchise in Catoosa might have been taking those claims a little too seriously. Video of a mouse running through a package of hamburger buns was posted online after employees told KJRH that management did nothing to rectify the health code violations.
“The managers, they’re just like ‘Yeah, we’ll get to it; yeah it’s not really that big of an issue,’ employee Skylar Frame told the news station.
Another employee, Samantha Niebelink, said she got video of another rat about a month earlier.
“The next time, I found an actual live mouse in there, crawling around, eating all the burger buns. [The manager] told me ‘Just take a new rack and get buns underneath.’ That was just disgusting because last time there was rat feces it was dribbling underneath every other rack,” Niebelink told KJRH.
Both employees said they planned to quit if management doesn’t make improvements, but by talking to the media, we imagine that they might’ve already forced their hand.
KJRH reports that the health department did not find any violations when they followed up after the videos, which means someone did an elaborate job of cleaning up or maybe trained the mice to make the best dang spicy chicken sandwich you’ve ever tasted.
