JACKSONVILLE — Burger King is apologizing after a Florida employee was caught on video using a floor mop to clean the tops of tables.

The video shows an employee scrubbing a table with a mop and then back down to the floor.

The fast food chain released a statement Friday condemning the employee's actions and calling the incident unacceptable.

"The action depicted in the video is unacceptable and not in line with our brand standards or operational procedures," the statement, provided by a spokesperson to News4Jax, begins. We have strict protocols around cleanliness and food safety. The restaurant owner will be re-training his team on all operational protocols."

News4Jax reports the same Burger King location in Fruit Cove was cited for eight violations in February, including moldy kitchen vents and dirty freezer interiors.
