You’ll never look at your Taco Supreme the same way again. A photo posted to Taco Bell’s Facebook of an employee licking taco shells has gone viral, raising eyebrows and red flags with Taco Bell’s head honchos.

While the circumstances are unknown, the taco shells the employee appears to be making out with could have been destined for the trash rather than public consumption. Even so, Taco Bell is now trying to find the pictured taco shell licker.

Huffington Post posted a statement from Taco Bell spokesperson Rob Poetsch. In the email statement, Poetsch makes it clear that Taco Bell has “strict food handling procedures and zero tolerance for any violations.”

“When we learned of the situation we immediately contacted this restaurant’s leadership and although we believe it is a prank and the food was not served to customers, we are conducting a full scale investigation and will be taking swift action against those involved.”

This is just one of the crazy stories we found floating around the web. Check out what we covered this morning in 50 Shades of Cray.
