We see many reputed and popular restaurants get into trouble because of public dissatisfaction that occurs due to poor quality and bad service. One such incident had caused outrage for a police officer in New Mexico, USA when he ordered food from the well-known restaurant, Burger King in Clovis, NM.

Police gets food with pig symbol from burger king USA

On August 9, Timo Rosenthal, the New Mexico Police officer shared a facebook post in which he described the poor quality of the food that was delivered to him by Burger King. He said the “patties were burnt and the burger was of very poor quality” and it would be his last order at Burger King, Clovis.

“Well, while on lunch break (and in uniform) I ordered food at Burger King and received this. The patties were burnt and the burger was of very poor quality. Guess that was the last time I ate at Burger King in Clovis, NM” wrote Timo on his Facebook wall.

Further, the wrapper had the hand-drawn “Pig” symbol which presumably would not be found in any Burger King orders irrespective of the type of food orders. The issue has been escalated to the concerned authorities of Burger King and reportedly 5 employees who were involved in the delivery of poor quality burger were suspended. To compensate for the incident, the restaurant has decided to offer free food for all the uniformed officers as a gesture of goodwill.

“When made aware of the incident, the restaurant owner immediately reached out to the officer involved to apologize and terminated the team members involved. To make amends, the restaurant is now offering free meals to uniformed officers.” a Burger King spokesperson was quoted as saying by Fox News.
