Outrage over viral Taco Bell picture of worker who appears to be licking a stack of taco shells

Someone posted a picture of a Taco Bell employee apparently licking a stack of taco shells to the company's Facebook page Monday. The picture sent a wave of nausea across the internet.

The outrage was predictable but unfortunately so is this kind of behavior. There has been a rash of recent incidents at fast food chains.

So is this a new trend? Or is social media just finally spilling the beans?

    Why isn't there federal criminal charges for tampering with someone food. Someone needs to bring a consumer protection complaint against the chain for negligent hiring, improper training and supervision.
