If the health inspector marks off two points for not wearing a hairnet in the kitchen, how many points does he deduct for wearing nearly nothing in the kitchen?

Three Anderson, California KFC employees are out of a job, after posing for provocative photos in the restaurant's kitchen sink.
The restaurant was first made aware of the photos that were posted on MySpace when a reporter for NBC affiliate KNVN, approached a manager Tuesday night.

Not only are the photos shocking to the restaurant's managers, but to officials with the Shasta County Environmental Health Department.

Environmental Health Director Fern Hastings said "it's not okay to do, it's not okay by law.  There's a couple of sections in the law that say you shouldn't be doing that."

Hastings says her main concern was whether or not the sink was sanitized after the incident.

But when she went there for an inspection, she was pleased to see that the sink had been sanitized with the proper chemicals.

Still she says the incident never should have happened.

"Obviously that should never be done.  They should never be getting into a dish washing sink, it's for dish washing.  Hand sinks are just for hand washing.  They have specific sinks that shouldn't be used for anything else," Hastings said.

KFC's district manager said the girls were suspended immediately and are in the process of being terminated.

He declined to appear on camera, but did say this is a sad day for KFC and it's an unfortunate situation because the girls had been loyal employees for several years.

The restaurant was cited for several other minor health violations, but none were related to the sink.
