Posted: Updated:

A shocking video of an employee of Pizza Hut led to the Kermit, WV location being closed down.

In the video, the employee urinates into a sink in the food prep area.

The Mingo County Health Dept. went to the restaurant after learning of the video and closed the restaurant.

Pizza Hut responded to the video with the following statement:

"First of all, we are embarrassed by the actions of this individual. Pizza Hut has zero tolerance for violations of our operating standards, and the local owner of the restaurant took immediate action and terminated the employee involved. While the isolated incident occurred during non-business hours and did not involve any food tampering, we follow strict safety and handling procedures and the restaurant has since been closed. We apologize to our customers of Kermit, West Virginia and those in our system who have been let down by this situation."
