WATCH: Fast Food Joint Closed Down After Employees Cooked Dead Rat on Burger Grill


Oh, now that is just nasty… a hamburger joint in Hawaii was closed down after employees shared a video of a dead rat cooking on the burger grill on social media.

Teddy’s Bigger Burgers, which has locations across the Hawaiian Islands and the western U.S., shut down one of its outlets in Honolulu after the video began making the rounds on social media.

In the video, an employee can be seen using a steel spatula to push a dead rat around on the burger grill.

Another employee is seen with his mouth wide open in mock shock as the two joke about the incident.

The company immediately closed down the Mapunapuna location and then fired the two employees seen on the video.

“We are horrified that a former teenage employee would conduct themselves in that way and make such a video of which we are investigating its authenticity,” said Richard Stula, the president of Teddy’s Bigger Burgers, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

The company also ordered a complete sanitation of the location where the two joksters worked.

It is also set to replace the grill and cooking utensils at the restaurant.

“We will then send a corporate team in to inspect and complete a thorough audit of the location before it is allowed to re-open,” said Stula about the plans to clean the location.

The company will undoubtedly face intense inspection by state health authorities.

Still, the company has a good sanitation record with authorities.

Stula added that he is looking into possible prosecution of the fired employees.

“We are horrified a former employee would create something like this trying to destroy our reputation without regard for our 20-plus years of quality and aloha,”Stula said.

They are right to be worried. Something like this could destroy their business.
