Taco Bell Employee Under Investigation For Licking Shells

A Taco Bell employee found himself caught between a rock and a hard shell when he posted a pic of himself licking the taco coverings on Facebook and is now the subject of an investigation.

JJ O’Brien Nolan, an alleged worker at the fast food chain in Calif., posted the above photo with the caption, “This sure says a lot about your employees, food treatment, and what they post on the internet.” The flick was reportedly shared nearly 2,000 times, prompting Taco Bell to take immediate action.

The company then commented on the picture, saying, “Hi Jj – We have strict food handling procedures and zero tolerance for any violations. We believe this is a prank and the food was not served to customers. We are conducting an investigation and will be taking swift action against those involved.”
