On Tuesday, Steven Henderson posted a Twitter photo showing what looked like a rat poking out of a wrap. “My colleague ordered a wrap and got a rat @Chopt.” The original tweet has since been deleted, but the image soon went viral. Gothamist, who first reported the story, said that Chop’t founder Tony Shure was aware of the incident and the Manhattan location had been shut down for the day in order for the staff to do a “deep clean.”Later that evening, the company issued an apology in an open letter. “Nothing can describe what goes through the minds and hearts of all of us at Chop’t in a moment like this,” the statement reads.
On the upside, it is a pretty cute rat.
