Burger King responded with a statement:
“While this is an isolated incident, we take these matters very seriously. Food safety and hygiene is always a top priority for us.
“We have already contacted the Franchisee, who independently owns and operates the location, to investigate this matter and ensure they take the appropriate measures. We can confirm that the Restaurant is temporarily closed and will reopen once this issue is addressed.”
Delaware Health and Social Services temporarily shut down that Burger King location and said it will reopen once health inspection standards are met.
