When contacted about this, Taco Bell spokesman Rob Poetsch wrote in an e-mail to HuffingtonPost that the company has “strict food handling procedures and zero tolerance for any violations. When we learned of the situation we immediately contacted this restaurant’s leadership and although we believe it is a prank and the food was not served to customers, we are conducting a full scale investigation and will be taking swift action against those involved”.
