Popeyes employees fired for putting cayenne pepper in food

News

SCOTT, La. (CNN NEWSOURCE) — Popeyes’ new chicken sandwich has customers storming restaurants all over the country to get their hands on one, and that means employees are working nonstop, but not everyone is thrilled about the boom.

A video shows a Popeyes employee in Louisiana pouring an excessive amount of cayenne pepper into sandwiches ingredients.

The unidentified employee shot video of the incident. That video was posted on Instagram.

While police say the situation isn’t a criminal matter, the people involved have been fired. The restaurant also says it is investigating the incident.

No word on if the extra spicy sandwiches were actually served to customers.
