While Wendy’s can be a pretty decent spot to cure some late-night munchies, few would welcome clumps of deep-fried weed in their child’s French fries. Unfortunately, that’s exactly what an Ohio woman says happened when she took her four-year-old daughter to a local Wendy’s earlier this month.
On her way from daycare to cheerleading practice, Dezeray Risner stopped at a Wendy’s in Huber Heights, figuring she’d get her kids a quick snack. The trip took an unexpected turn, however, when Risner’s four-year-old daughter started “yelling that her food is nasty.” After making her daughter spit out the half-chewed fries, Risner found not only a bunch of deep-fried weed in the palm of her hand, but also what looked like a cigarillo blunt wrap. Unsurprisingly, Risner sat down and wrote a scathing Facebook post once she got home.
Risner filed a police report after Wendy’s employees allegedly snickered about the incident and failed to take any real action. According to WDTN, the police detected a “strong odor of marijuana” and found a “green leafy vegetation” after opening the bag, but didn’t find any weed back at the restaurants. Still, two employees later confessed that they occasionally puff on the ganja.
“In response to Ms. Thompson’s Facebook Post, please know all of our customers as well as the quality and integrity of our food are a top priority at Wendy’s and we are taking this very seriously,” a spokesperson for the company told WDTN in a statement. “We are currently conducting a thorough internal investigation and the Human Resource and Legal departments are both fully cooperating with police in their investigation. We will get to the bottom of this issue as soon as possible. It is as important to us as it is to the community.”
