Three fast food workers in Ohio have been fired after a picture they took inside a Burger King went viral.
The photo showed someone in black pants and black shoes standing atop two tubs of the fast food restaurant's lettuce.

Within minutes of the posting, the site's users had extracted GPS data from the photo and worked to pinpoint the exact franchise location where the photographer had acted in Mayfield Heights, Ohio.

They then began to forward the posting around to local news outlets in the area.

The three employees who were involved have since been fired, according to a statement from Burger King's corporate headquarters.

Burger King said the employee in the photo is shown violating "the company's stringer food handling procedures."
