A woman who posted a now-viral video “exposing” how Panera Bread prepares mac and cheese says was fired from her job. The video was posted last week on
TikTok with the caption “exposing Panera,” and shows a plastic packet of frozen mac and cheese being dropped into a boiler. The video then shows the employee cut the bag open with scissors and pour the contents into a bowl.

The woman gave a thumbs up at the end of the clip. The video made many angry slamming the restaurant for selling frozen mac and cheese to customers.
The woman behind the video took to Twitter to announce that she had been fired after posting the video.“Lol i lost my job for this,” she tweeted.
According to a statement from the company, the mac and cheese is “made offsite with our proprietary recipe developed by our chefs.”
“It is shipped frozen to our bakery cafes — this allows us to avoid using preservatives which do not meet our clean standards.”
