Antonio Robinson tells Memphis, Tennessee, television station WREG that his friend found hair in his food when they dined last week at a Waffle House in Forrest City, about 90 miles east of Little Rock.

"He was just coughing. Cough. Cough. Making noises like that," Antonio Robinson said. "I looked up at him [and] he went to pulling out strings of hair out his mouth."

Robinson says he watched one employee dipping her hair into the water pot on a stove in the restaurant's kitchen, then drying it with a towel. The incident was recorded on their cellphones.
