Austin Velliquette posted the photo to Facebook on Sunday with the caption, “Sandusky Taco bell for ya. I think I'll go somewhere else, thanks.”

Taco Bell confirmed to newsnet5.com the picture was taken at its location on Fun Drive in Sandusky and released the following statement:

This is completely unacceptable. Our franchisee took immediate action, and has terminated the employee and re-trained the entire staff. We want customers to know that the person in the photo was never in contact with the food, and that the Health Department inspected the restaurant and approved its operations.
