An employee at the law firm Stroock tells Gothamist that there was most definitely an entire rat inside that Chop’t wrap yesterday and that he “heard [his] co-worker scream,” then phone a doctor for advice about getting a rabies vaccination. “[Chop’t founder Tony Shure] called and apologized profusely to my co-worker. He expressed that it must have been a disgruntled employee,” the employee says. The damning pics tweeted by two employees were deleted from Twitter, he explains, because the victim "[does] not want to think about it or discuss it any more.” [Gothamist, Related]
