Police are searching for two women who brutally beat up a fast food worker for getting their food order wrong.

Officials released still images of the hungry women wanted in the April beating of a Steak 'n Shake worker, authorities said Wednesday.

The suspects are seen in surveillance video inside the restaurant on Hillsborough Avenue in Tampa, the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office said.

The attack happened around 11:20 a.m. on April 26, police say.

The two unidentified suspects complained about a mistake in their order and began to argue with an employee, according to authorities.

The suspects then entered an employee-only area and began "brutally attacking" the female worker, punching and kicking her in the head and face, the sheriff's office said.

A McDonald's restaurant in China has installed exercise bikes for customers who crave junk food while burning off unwanted calories.

In a viral TikTok video uploaded by user @cris13yu, and viewed over 32 million times, McDonald's diners can be seen munching on Big Macs and fries while riding stationary exercise bikes.

It isn't clear if McDonald's plans to install exercise bikes in restaurants in the U.S. where obesity rates increased 30.5% to 42.4% from 1999-2000 through 2017-2018.

Newsweek contacted McDonald's and @cris13yu for comment but did not hear back in time for publication.

A Waffle House worker who held an infant baby in her arms while apparently serving customers has been suspended from her job.

The video footage was uploaded to TikTok by user @Kizzle360 who captioned the video "Ain't know why she got her baby in here [sic]."

Someone can be heard in the background saying, "Ain't no f***ing way."

Viewers were conflicted. Many said they would never bring a baby to work even under the most dire circumstances.

According to TMZ, the Waffle House worker, Tiffany Clark, has a "tragic backstory."

Tiffany, who goes by @tiffanyclark842 on TikTok, claims she had no choice but to take her 4-month-old niece Octavia to work with her.

Tiffany was working the overnight shift at a South Carolina when she got an urgent call from her mother about an emergency family situation.

Tiffany said Octavia is the daughter of her brother who recently died.

The baby's grandmother told Tiffany to get the baby because the child's mother had a mental breakdown and was going to be hospitalized.

Tiffany said the only other option was for the baby to end up in the custody of child services. She told TMZ the video is not nearly as bad as it looks.

Despite appearances, Tiffany claims she was never cooking food with baby Octavia in her arms.

She insists she was simply marking plates for servers, and she says she was only behind the counter with the child for the brief moment that was caught on video.

After the video went viral, Tiffany explained the situation to her boss. She was suspended from her job for a week, but she won't be fired.

Tiffany says she intends become her niece's legal guardian while the baby's mother seeks help for her mental disorder.

Another one of Kandi Burruss' restaurants has failed a health inspection. Luckily for Kandi, fans still dine at her establishments after her poor history of failed health inspections.

Last month The Real Housewives of Atlanta star and her husband Todd Tucker's Blaze Steak House on Cascade Road received a second failing score and was forced to shut down.

RhymeswithSnitch reports that Kandi and Todd's Old Lady Gang soul food restaurant has received a second failing score.

The Old Lady Gang Southern Cuisine restaurant, located at 177 Peters Street in Alanta's warehouse district, received a 78 (Grade C) score from the Fulton County Health Inspector on August 24, 2017. The restaurant scored a subsequent 100 on reinspection in 2017.

According to the Georgia Dept. of Health website, Old Lady Gang Southern Eatery scored a dismal 75 after a third inspection on July 14 found several violations at the establishment.

The health official noted that the manager was not taking steps to "prevent foodborne illness by having repeated risk factors and good retail practice violations."

Atlanta restaurants that fail health inspections are given one chance to clean up their act before they are forced to close down permanently.

A Burger King signage went viral after a group of disgruntled Burger King employees walked off the job at the same time at a Lincoln, Nebraska location.

The former employees walked off the job and left a message on the Burger King sign announcing: "WE ALL QUIT. SORRY FOR THE INCONVENIENCE."

According to the former employees, they were upset over poor work conditions, low pay and long hours. They chose to collect unemployment which pays more than the minimum wage in Nebraska.

"They have gone through so many district managers since I've been GM," said former general manager Rachel Flores who was among the disgruntled workers that resigned. "No one has come to the store to help me out. They're so in and out."

Flores told reporters the sign was something they all came up with to inform customers that the restaurant was closed and "just kind of a laugh to upper management."

Burger King corporate office issued a statement to CNN:

"The work experience described at this location is not in Lin with our brand values. Our franchisee is looking into this situation to ensure this doesn't happen in the future."

Flores said she was surprised the sign went viral on social media.

"I didn't think anybody was going to notice it, because we did just one sign, and then it went pretty crazy on Facebook," she said. "I got a call from my upper management and they told me I needed to take it down."

Subway

A second lab analysis of Subway restaurant's tuna fish sandwich, obtained by The NY Times, failed to identify any fish DNA in the ingredients.

Months after two Bay Area residents claimed there was no fish in Subway's tuna fish sandwiches, the New York Times ordered a new lab analysis.

A federal class action lawsuit noted a laboratory analysis of the tuna fish sandwiches determined no seafood DNA was found in the ingredients.

"We found that the ingredients were not tuna and not fish," said one of two attorneys representing two plaintiffs in the lawsuit in an email to The Washington Post.

The lawsuit claimed the "products are made from a mixture of various concoctions that do not constitute tuna, yet have been blended together by Defendants to imitate the appearance of tuna."

Subway restaurant hit back at the claims that the company made "false and misleading representations about tuna being used as an ingredient."

"There simply is no truth to the allegations in the complaint that was filed in California," a company spokesperson told DailyMail.com in January.

However, a second analysis of more than five feet of Subway tuna fish sandwiches obtained by the New York Times, determined no fish DNA was found in the samples.

Kandi Burruss' restaurant, Blaze -- named after her firstborn son -- was forced to shut down after failing a second health inspection.

Blaze closed its doors for good on May 20 after failing a second health inspection on May 19, according to Radar Online. The restaurant, which opened to the public in November, received a failing score of 55.

The issues cited in the May 19 report included a cook handling raw seafood without first washing hands, a Chick-fil-A cup in the food supplies area, and pink mold in both ice makers.

The restaurant was also forced to shut down in 2020 after it was cited for health and food safety violations.

Kandi, 45, is no stranger to the health inspector's office. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star's Old Lady Gang eatery just barely passed a second surprise health inspection in 2017 after failing in 2015.

The Old Lady Gang Southern Cuisine restaurant, located at 177 Peters Street in Alanta's warehouse district, received a 78 (Grade C) score from the Fulton County Health Inspector on August 24, 2017.

The restaurant's menu is based on soul food recipes from Kandi's mom, Mama Joyce (pictured right), and her two aunts, Nora and Bertha Jones.

The inspector found a laundry list of violations including inadequate hand washing facilities, unsanitary food contact surfaces and improper cooking time and temperatures.

A criminal investigation is currently underway at a franchise Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen restaurant in Missouri where a racist sign was posted in the window.

The sign announced the restaurant was under new management and it reserves the "right to refuse service to white people."

"This restaurant is under new management and will reserve the right to refuse service to white people.

We apologize for any inconvenience.

Signed, General Manager, Mason."

Local news reporter Russell Kinsaul took a photo of the sign and posted it on his Facebook page, where it spread quickly.

White customers are scarcely seen in Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen restaurants which primarily serve Black communities.

After the sign went viral, it was removed from the window and replaced with another sign that read: "Sorry For The Inconvenience. We’re Closed For The Day We Will Be Back Tomorrow."

Popeyes corporate office issued a statement that read:

"We have been made aware of the situation and are investigating the matter immediately. This type of behavior does not align with our brand values and we take such allegations very seriously. The franchise is cooperating with local authorities regarding this ongoing investigation."

According to Fox affiliate KTVI-TV in St. Louis, local police believe someone may have affixed the sign to the window "unbeknownst to the business".

The Internet claims a 7-year-old Chicago girl was killed in a McDonald's drive-thru because her father received a PPP loan.

Jontae Adams, 28, and his daughter Jaslyn were in the drive-thru at a McDonald's fast food restaurant when she was shot on Sunday, April 18.

A McDonald's employee who asked to remain anonymous told the Chicago Sun-Times that two men got out of a gray car in the drive-thru and started shooting into Adams' car.

Jaslyn died from multiple gunshot wounds and her father was seriously injured in a shooting, according to THV11 News.

Facebook users say the thugs targeted Adams because his name appeared on a list of PPP loan recipients published by the Small Business Association.

A search of the database shows a Jontae Adams in Chicago received a $20,000 emergency pandemic loan for his small business.

After the list was published, Adams took to Facebook and joked that his opposition was probably downstairs waiting for him.

No arrests have been made in the case. The girl's death is the latest shooting in Chicago involving children.

Riots broke out after 13-year-old Adam Toledo, a gang member whose nickname was "Lil Homicide", was killed by a police officer in a dark alley in March.

Burger King tried it when the corporation's official Twitter page sent out this tweet at 4 a.m. Monday: "Women belong in the kitchen."

The fast food giant quickly followed up its troll tweet with:

"If they want to, of course. Yet only 20% of chefs are women. We're on a mission to change the gender ratio in the restaurant industry by empowering female employees with the opportunity to pursue a culinary career."

The tweet was meant to coincide with Women's month in America, but Burger King's followers said the tweet was in poor taste and called for BK to delete it.

But Burger King doubled down.

"Why would we delete a tweet that's drawing attention to a huge lack of female representation in our industry, we thought you'd be on board with this as well? We've launched a scholarship to help give more of our female employees the chance to pursue a culinary career.

"Our 'thought process' is that women are shockingly underrepresented in our industry, and we thought it was time we did something about it. We've created a scholarship to give more of our female employees the chance to pursue a culinary career."

BK's followers were not impressed with the scholarship offer. One Twitter user accused BK of trying to run interference for the Royal Family after Meghan Markle and Harry Windsor's disastrous tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey on Sunday.

The manager of a fast food restaurant in Atlanta's Buckhead neighborhood is demanding answers from city officials after she was put on hold while trying to report a carjacking attempt.

City leaders and business owners have been working together on a plan to curb high crime in Atlanta's most affluent neighborhood, home to rapper Cardi B, singer Tyrese Gibson, and the governor of Georgia.

Karen Harris, the manager of Ru San's Sushi and Seafood in Buckhead, wants the city to do more to address crime, Fox 5 News reports.

"It certainly isn't the responsibility of our staff to catch the bad guy," said Harris, "That responsibility falls on our elected officials and our mayor."

"It's always been a safe place for our patrons in the community to walk and get great food," said Harris.

According to Harris, a customer left his child in his car parked outside the restaurant to pick up a to-go order on Saturday. She said a man attempted to break into the car and the child ran inside the restaurant to get help.

Staff members snapped photos of the man fleeing the area. This screengrab shows an employee on the phone with 911 while the suspect flees in the background.

"The concerning part was our employees were on hold with 911," said Harris, "Luckily, one of our employees knew an APD detective who she called who was able to dispatch APD."

Police arrested the carjacker and identified him as 34-year-old Andrew Robert Fike. Fike was booked into the Fulton County jail and charged with attempting to enter a vehicle, obstruction, loitering and prowling.

Atlanta's Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms recently addressed the high crime in Atlanta. Bottoms privately expressed support for the "Buckhead Security Plan” which includes sending up drones over Lenox Square Mall and Phipps Plaza and using metal detectors at the doors and drug sniffing dogs inside the malls.
