Yuck! Fecal bacteria found at UK branches of McDonald’s, KFC & Burger King
(Folks, it’s not just in the UK – I’ve read about this before also being found in the United States and in the same fast food branches. That’s why anytime that I have to eat at one ANYWHERE I always order my coke in a can, bring my own or I don’t eat there.)
An undercover investigation by a BBC consumer program has revealed that ice used in beverages in McDonald’s, Burger King and KFC in the UK contains fecal bacteria. Experts from the program “Watchdog” tested ten samples at each of the chains for traces of “fecal coliform” that is found in human and animal feces and cause a number of diseases.
The coliforms were discovered in three samples of McDonald’s drinks, six from Burger King and in seven samples taken at KFC food outlets. Four of the samples collected from Burger King and five from KFC reportedly had “significant” levels of the bacteria.
