Burger King Apologizes

Remember the shoeless six month old that was going to be kicked out of Burger King because the baby was violating a health code?
We checked around and in fact, being shoeless is not a health code violation in St. Louis County.
Burger King released a statement Thursday saying workers had taken the no shoes, no service policy too far.
"Our franchisee, which independently owns and operates this restaurant, apologizes for this guest's experience," the statement read. "The franchisee is retraining his restaurant team on the proper use of the 'no shoes' policy."
The franchise owner also contacted the mom to apologize in person.
The baby's mother said the whole was a bit overblown, and she hoped no one would be fired.
But she appreciated Burger King's apology.
