MAYFIELD HEIGHTS -- A local fast food worker has been fired after a picture he took inside a Burger King went viral.

And it's pretty easy to see why. The worker is stepping right on two bins of lettuce.

Channel 3's Dan Haggerty was live outside the Mayfield Heights Burger King where we are told the picture was taken.

Tuesday afternoon, Burger King released a statement:

"Burger King Corp. has recently been made aware of a photo posted on a social networking site that allegedly shows a BURGER KING restaurant employee violating the company's stringent food handling procedures."

"Food safety is a top priority at all BURGER KING restaurants and the company maintains a zero-tolerance policy against any violations such as the one in question."

"The restaurant where this photo was allegedly taken is independently-owned and operated by a BURGER KING franchisee. The franchisee has taken swift action to investigate this matter and terminated the three employees involved in this incident."
