HICKSVILLE, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — When the McDonald’s employees are away, the mice will play.

A video posted to YouTube and Facebook shows mice snacking and scampering behind the counter after hours at the McDonald’s in Hickville’s Broadway Mall, WCBS 880 Long Island Bureau Chief Mike Xirinachs reported.

The video was recorded Saturday by a West Hempstead couple waiting to see a movie. As of Wednesday morning, the video had been viewed nearly 90,000 times on Facebook.

Customers call it sickening.

“I would not eat there,” one man said.

“When you see, it’s like, ‘Woah, I’ve been eating where there are mice?” another man said.

“It’s not a happy meal,” a man said with a chuckle.

Mall and restaurant officials said they are committed to food safety and are addressing the problem.

During its last two scheduled health inspections, the McDonald’s received A ratings.
