The picture, which showed up on the website Reddit , appears to show a Wendy's employee enjoying a Frosty right from the machine.
Wendy's responded to @ABC15's tweet about the frosty incident via Twitter, saying: "Totally inexcusable. This involved one restaurant and the employee is no longer there. We're reinforcing proper procedures."
ABCnews.com reported that the photo comes at a bad time because the company is currently promoting its Frosty products, including its newest Frosty Waffle Cone, for a Father's Day charity drive for the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption, named after Wendy's founder.
