"Don't go to Burger King on 202", she posted with the video, saying there were rats "running all over their buns".

According to the inspection report, rodent droppings were found inside the hamburger and chicken sandwich rolls.

A representative for Burger King confirmed that this particular location is independently owned and operated, but stated that the company will be investigating in order to "ensure they take the appropriate measures".

The investigation also found the building's ceiling was leaking in the kitchen near the storage and food line and flies were also coming in from a drain close by.

The inspecting officers found droppings from the rats on the burger buns as well as on the floor near the storage and cooking areas. In a statement to 6abc Action News, Burger King Media Relations said, "Food safety and hygiene is always a top priority for us".

The business reopened Monday afternoon after another inspection found the issues had been addressed, a health official told The News Journal of Wilmington.
