The furor over chicken sandwiches from Popeyes has spread across the nation. There have been fights and arguments and even one man was murdered for allegedly cutting in line to get a chicken sandwich.
Now pictures have surfaced from a Virginia Popeyes restaurant showing employees putting together the sandwiches over a garbage can.

On the picture, you can see the employee spreading the mayo-based sauce on the toasted buns, and then laying them on a tray that was sitting atop a garbage can. As you can see in the photo, it looks like the other prep area is full.

In a statement to Fox News, Popeyes says it is investigating the incident.

“We are aware of the incident and the actions that took place clearly do not meet our standards for food service and preparation. We have already addressed the situation with the restaurant owner who is looking into the matter.”
