The Burger King outlet in Wilmington, Delaware, was temporarily shut down by the public health inspectors after a woman spotted them, as per a report by Fox News.

'Don't go to Burger King on 202 (rats are) running all over their buns.

Health investigators found rodent droppings inside the burger and chicken rolls.

The Division of Public Health Office of Food Protection received a complaint on June 1 after the video footage surfaced of the mice appearing to scurry about on the rolls in the restaurant, spokeswoman Andrea Wojcik said in a public statement from the health agency. The restaurant had been closed because of rodent infestation and gross, unsanitary conditions.

The health department found the plastic bags containing the buns had been chewed, while rodent droppings were found on the pallets the rolls were resting on, 7 News Miami reported.

Officials were back at the restaurant on Monday, June 4 to re-inspect it. Inspectors also found part of the ceiling to be leaking, and flies coming out of a drain.

The restaurant was also subject to a "reinspection" on Monday, at which time the operators needed to demonstrate that they addressed the lapses in 'food security issues'. A spokesperson for Delaware's Division of Health could not confirm whether the restaurant had reopened.

Burger King told Delaware Online that the location in question was independently owned and operated. The company told CBS3 that "Food safety and hygiene is always a top priority for us".
