A Florida Taco Bell is under investigation after a local sheriff’s deputy consumed two burritos that tasted of bleach.
The Lee County officer, who has only been identified as ‘Deputy Brown’, ordered four burritos from the Taco Bell drive-through in Lehigh Acres on Sunday.
Brown was on the way to a call for service when he ate two of the four burritos and suddenly noticed something odd.

The burritos tasted foul and his tongue began to feel ‘numb and tingly’.
Brown then decided to inspect the two remaining burritos and the paper bag they had been wrapped inside.
That’s when he realized that the bag smelled of bleach, according to WXYZ.
Brown immediately notified law enforcement and an investigation has since been launched.

Taco Bell has also released a statement saying the franchisee who owns and operates the Lehigh Acres chain is investigating as well.
‘We take food safety very seriously and are deeply appreciative of the men and women who serve and protect our communities and our country,’ the statement reads.
Meanwhile, Brown is now concerned for his health after consuming the burritos.
An update has not been released on his condition.
