Two fast-food restaurant employees who bathed in a dishwashing sink took their hygiene a bit too far — but didn’t pose a health threat, the county’s health director said.

    1. C'mon — what's not to like?

      Hoof it over to Facebook to join the weird news herd.

The caper came to light when a photograph developer spotted pictures of the men taking turns posing, in bathing suits, in a large sink full of bubbles, said Barry Bass, director of the Davie County Health Department.

“From a public-health standpoint, you want the employees to be clean,” said Bass, though he added the employees may have overdone it.

The sink at the Wendy’s has cleaning jets and is used to wash pots, pans and other cookware.
Bass said the restaurant won’t be cited for any health-code violations, because no health official directly observed a violation.

The restaurant’s manager assured health officials the sink had been sanitized and that it wouldn’t happen again, Bass said.

Wendy’s officials did not return calls for comment.
