HOUSTON -- A vendor at Houston's Minute Maid Park has been fired after a fan filmed him taking a tray of snow cones into a stadium bathroom and putting it on the floor of the stall while using the facilities.

The fan shared the video with KPRC-TV (http://bit.ly/10UGkM3), which aired the report Wednesday night.

New Astros president Reid Ryan says: "The Astros were notified immediately by our partner ARAMARK of the incident involving a vendor on Monday night. We commend the swift reaction displayed by ARAMARK of terminating the employee immediately upon learning of the incident that evening."

ARAMARK, which runs food services at the ballpark, called it an isolated incident and said the vendor's actions were "a clear violation of our food safety practices and are not reflective of our standards."
