www.nyourfacetv1.com A now former employee at a McDonald's in
Philadelphia claims he saw the rodent while on
the job and whipped out his cell phone camera.
He's talking only to Fox about what his manager
told him to do with that food.
The man says this happened when he worked for
the McDonald's on Stenton Avenue in the
Philadelphia's West Oak Lane section.
The Fox 29 viewer contacted us because he says
he was so disturbed by what was happening, he
wanted to warn customers:
In the video is a bag of hamburger buns used to

the former employee.
Demaio tells us he shot the video with his

In the video, the brown object in the center-

tail come into focus as the mouse squirms

droppings on the bread," Demaio said.
Demaio told Fox 29 his boss ordered employees
to brush off the droppings, and serve the bread
Fox 29 spoke to another former employee who
did not want to be identified. He says he was
fired for not showing up to work. That
employee confirmed what Demaio told us.
What's more, that former employee says he
once saw the general manager brush off the
