Waffle House fires 2 workers after customers find hair in food

FORREST CITY, Ark. (AP) – Waffle House says it has fired two employees at one of its Arkansas restaurants after video emerged showing a worker dipping her hair into a pot of water in the restaurant’s kitchen.

Antonio Robinson tells Memphis, Tennessee, television station WREG that his friend found hair in his food when they dined last week at a Waffle House in Forrest City, about 90 miles east of Little Rock.

Robinson says he watched one employee dipping her hair into the water pot on a stove in the restaurant’s kitchen, then drying it with a towel.

Robinson says he and his friend recorded the incident on their cellphones.

Waffle House, based in Norcross, Georgia, said in a statement it has fired two employees and that the restaurant has since passed a state health department inspection.
