In an unusual turn of events at a Taco Bell branch in Kokomo, a former employee, Jennifer Legear, took to social media to expose a picture of one employee giving another a haircut right in the kitchen area, just moments before the lunchtime rush.
This eyebrow-raising incident has prompted an investigation by the local health department.
Jennifer Legear worked at the Sycamore Taco Bell for a short period, and she initially shared the photo privately with friends on Snapchat.
However, when one of her friends posted the image on social media, it quickly gained attention.
Unfortunately, this newfound notoriety led to Legear’s termination, but she decided to make the photo public on Facebook.
The Howard County Health Department received a complaint related to this incident and subsequently visited the Taco Bell location.
While they did not confirm a direct connection between the photo and the complaint, the inspection report is currently pending release.
Legear, in her Facebook post, shed light on her perspective of the situation.
The management at the fast food chain explained that the haircut occurred because employees have tight schedules and lack the time to visit a hair salon.
She revealed the responses she received when questioned about taking the picture, including the statement, “if you had a problem with it, you should have said something.”
The health department clarified that they responded to the complaint and conducted an inspection to assess the restaurant’s compliance with food safety regulations.
The inspection report will be made public after a 10-day response period.
As for Taco Bell, they have not yet commented on this unusual situation.
Depending on the findings, a corrective action plan may be necessary to address any violations.
Any delays in implementing these corrections could result in significant fines for the establishment.
