A new video posted on social media might make you think twice about stopping at your local Dunkin’ Donuts for a treat anytime soon.
The video, posted on Facebook by Liam Flaherty, a former employee at the franchise’s Mendon, Massachusetts location, showed an employee dropping a rack of donuts on the floor and then putting them back on the display for purchase.
Flaherty said he posted the surveillance footage, which was recorded last November, because, he said, management wouldn’t respond to the “deplorable” conditions when he made them aware of them.
He claimed the woman in the video was his manager at the time.
“People ate those donuts that fell and touched the ground,” he told ABC News. “And she was just OK with that.”
Dunkin’ Donuts responded to the video with the following written statement.
At Dunkin’ Donuts, food safety is a top priority and nothing is more important to us than the operation of clean and safe restaurants. We have been informed that the Mendon Board of Health visited the Dunkin’ Donuts restaurant today for an inspection and no violations were found.
Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants are independently owned and operated by individual franchisees who are solely responsible for their employees, including employment decisions such as schedules and wages. Franchisees are required to comply with all applicable state, federal and local laws, including but not limited to wage and hour laws and those governing health and safety.
Watch the original footage below.
