A Florida Taco Bell is under investigation after a police officer found his food poisoned, according to reports.
A Lee County Sheriff identified as Officer Brown alleges that he ordered food at a Lehigh Acres, Florida, Taco Bell but when he began eating he caught a foul odor from the food.
According to Fox News:
Brown said he ate two of the burritos on his way to a call and noticed something was off. Brown said he inspected the remaining two burritos, and claimed the exterior paper wrapped around the food smelled like bleach.
Soon after eating the burritos, Brown said his tongue started to feel “numb and tingly,” WXYZ reports.
The officer said he is now concerned for his health after consuming what he feels were tainted burritos.
The restaurant chain released a statement about the incident promising that the owner of the outlet will cooperate with any investigation:
We take food safety very seriously and are deeply appreciative of the men and women who serve and protect our communities and our country. The franchisee that owns and operates this Lehigh Acres restaurant is cooperating with local authorities and investigating this matter.
Police announced that an investigation is now underway to find out who poisoned the officer’s food.
This is far from the first time that police officers have found their restaurant orders tampered with.
Just this month a Kansas McDonald’s worker was charged with a crime for spiking a police officer’s drink with peroxide-based cleaner. A similar incident occurred to an Indianapolis officer who reported that his food was poisoned by a McDonald’s worker.
Another food service worker went in a different direction with her hate for police by refusing to serve them at all.
A woman who owned a Detroit food truck recently told police that they were not welcome as customers.
The left-wing owner of a Detroit, Michigan, food truck has announced that she will not serve any members of law enforcement because, she says, she and her customers “do not feel safe around law enforcement agents.”
Rocky Coronado, the owner of Rocky’s Road Brew, took to Facebook Friday to say she is “well within [her] rights to refuse service to law enforcement agents,” Fox News reported.
The Facebook post has since been deleted, but the Antifa food trucker claimed that on Friday two officers “in a unmarked, black suburban with tinted windows both with bulletproof vests and badges,” came to her truck for a meal.
