Jaime Christine Major, 39, was charged Monday with malicious food tampering at a Burger King location in the city of Union, South Carolina.
Florida-born Major, who was an assistant manager, he is accused of taking French fries from the garbage and adding them to the container where freshly cooked French fries are kept ready to serve.

Burger King has distanced itself from Major’s behavior, saying it is committed to “quality food and service.” The fast food giant added that the Union branch is cooperating with police.
The branch manager, Major’s superior, called 911 to report customers “arguing with staff on site,” according to the police report seen by DailyMail.com.

Shaver tried to calm them down, but they continued to “be loud and boisterous and use profanity towards the employees,” for which he arrested them for disorderly conduct.
