After a video that shows rats running inside the bags of buns goes viral, a Burger King branch in Delaware was temporarily shut down last week.
The video of the rats running inside a bag filled with hamburger buns was posted on Facebook last Thursday by Shantel Johnson, a resident of Wilmington.
She posted the video with the caption: ‘Don’t go to Burger King on 202 (rats are) running all over their buns … (at) Wilmington Delaware Concord Pike,’
Her Facebook post went viral and had been viewed by more than 742,000 Facebook users and shared by 22,000.
Delaware’s Division of Public Health Office of Food Protection received a complaint last Friday, according to Delaware Online.

Inspectors visited the Burger King location and decided to close the location immediately due to an ‘imminent health hazard’ caused by ‘gross unsanitary conditions’ and ‘rodent infestation.’
According to the inspection report, rodent droppings were found on and inside the hamburger and chicken sandwich buns.
A spokesperson for Burger King told Delaware Online that the location in question was independently owned and operated and the owner of the location has been contacted to investigate this matter.
