WESTON, W.Va (WDTV) - The Lewis County Health Department investigated an issue at the Weston Wendy’s on Wednesday after receiving complaints regarding bed bugs.

Officials said a health inspection was conducted Wednesday morning at the restaurant. During the inspection, no bed bugs were found.

Wendy’s contacted an exterminator to eradicate the situation, according to the LCHD.

The results of the extermination revealed no evidence of bed bugs or harborage, officials said.

The CDC says bed bugs do not carry disease and are not considered a medical or public health hazard.

Employees and residents protested outside of the restaurant Wednesday morning with one of the posters saying “Wendy’s has bed bugs.”

The owner of that Wendy’s location contacted 5 News and said the restaurant does not have and has ever had bed bugs.

5′s Tyler Nicole will have a full report on this tonight on First at 5 and 5 News at 6.
