A fast-food worker turned herself in to police custody on Monday after allegations arose surrounding an incident in which the employee put menstrual blood on a customer's hamburger.
The Jack's fast-food restaurant where the worker was employed and the Mississippi State Department of Health are investigating the alleged contamination after a now-deleted post on social media went viral.
A Facebook post claimed that Jack's employee Sky Juliett Samuel, 18, intentionally contaminated a customer's hamburger with her own menstrual blood during a drive-in order.
The state health department said they sent an inspector to the restaurant following the allegations. Jack's passed the inspection, however, so the allegation was then reported to local law enforcement officials for criminal investigation.
The Columbus Police Department said they will conduct further investigation into the incident.
If she is convicted, Samuel will face up to five years in prison.
