Food inspector finds no violations after viral social media post

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Fort Wayne’s NBC) – The Allen County Department of Health has given a fast food restaurant called out on social media for being filthy a clean bill of health following a new inspection.

On Monday, a Fort Wayne man posted on his Facebook page about his dining experience at a local Wendy’s.

He wasn’t impressed.

He claimed the Wendy’s off of US 24 had food all over the floor, trash overflowing and paper receipts scattered all over.

The post began spreading quickly on social media, and the Allen County Department of Health received a complaint about the restaurant’s alleged condition.

However, on Tuesday a food inspector found the floors to be clean, and found no food debris under kitchen equipment.

The manager told the inspector that the issues were being addressed with staff.

The Health Department found no violations.

Wenco, the franchise owner for this location, sent this statement to Fort Wayne’s NBC:

“Nothing is more important to us than the high-quality restaurant experience that we provide. Upon learning of this situation, we took immediate action, and the local health department visited the restaurant yesterday and found no violations. We have also taken this opportunity to retrain and reinforce our strict food safety and cleanliness procedures with our restaurant team.”
