Fast food employees fired after engaging in food fight
Four employees of a fast food chain in Vermont, United States, have been fired from their jobs after having a food fight at the end of their shift last Friday, July 19.

“This is what happens behind the scenes at your KFC and Taco Bell here in St. Albans,” Demar said.
The incident did not go unnoticed by authorities for too long. After catching wind of the video, the Vermont Department of Health went to investigate the establishment on Monday, July 22, as per CBS-affiliate WCAX last Wednesday, July 24.
According to the manager of the KFC-Taco Bell branch, the employee caught washing her hair in the kitchen sink had taco sauce squirted on her hair during the supposed food fight. She was not able to remove the sauce while washing it at the bathroom sink, which is why she opted to use the sink in the kitchen.
The store where the incident happened did not give further comment when asked. Meanwhile, the corporate office issued a statement that said the behavior of the employees concerned was unacceptable, and that their employment has since been terminated.
Aside from the video posted online, footage from security cameras inside the establishment will be used by the corporate office of the fast food chain in conducting its own investigation. As per repot, the store has sanitized all surfaces and equipment used in the video. Ryan Arcadio/JB
