Outrageous Dunkin' Donuts Employee Drops Donuts on Floor Before Selling Them
Dunkin' Donuts' slogan is "America Runs on Dunkin'," but America might be running from Dunkin' after watching this stomach-turning video.
A surveillance camera at a Dunkin' Donuts franchise in Mendon, Massachusetts, captured an employee dropping a tray of donuts on the floor and then putting them back on the display rack.
Liam Flaherty, who used to work at the franchise, said the video was recorded last November, but he just posted it to his Facebook page in recent days.
Flaherty revealed the woman in the video was his manager.
"People ate those donuts that fell and touched the ground," Flaherty told ABC News. "And she was just OK with that."
He said he shared the footage because the franchise's management neglected to respond to the "deplorable" store conditions when he brought them to their attention.
Dunkin Donuts' global office released a statement:
At Dunkin' Donuts, food safety is a top priority and nothing is more important to us than the operation of clean and safe restaurants. We have been informed that the Mendon Board of Health visited the Dunkin' Donuts restaurant today for an inspection and no violations were found.
