Gotta Watch: Fast food fondlers

Fast food service may not be considered “fine dining” but customers who frequent such establishments expect a certain level of sanitation. Unfortunately, in some cases that trust is misplaced.  Check out these videos of fast food workers with less than healthy manners.  Do their punishments fit their crimes?

Fast food workers fired over food safety

Burger King is the latest establishment to fall victim to employee hijinks going viral. Unlike the other videos on this list, the camera doesn’t reveal any faces. Watch this video to learn how the sneaky culprit was caught.

2009: Domino's food tampering video

Viral anti-sanitation videos took a disgusting leap in 2009 at a Domino’s store after two employees filmed themselves “mishandling” various foods. Do you side with one of the staffer’s brothers or are you too shocked by what their video shows to care?

2008: Employees bathe in store sink

In 2008, a few Kentucky Fried Chicken employees took a dip in their store’s sink and posted photos of their act on MySpace. While their fellow staff certainly don’t defend their action, perhaps you’ll wonder why they still say it’s sanitary.

      What a sily comment. You call them bums for not working, then you call them bums when they do work. (In this case, you are right, but...) Have you a job for people on unemployment? No? Stuff it then.

    Fast food industry is in a crunch to save money, keeping the cost down and yet make profit. So they are forced to hire people who would accept low income. That's why we don't have cameras in there and we have these low-lives making these foods. Cause we don't wan to pay for those.

    this can happen at any restaurant.. people that work in h kitchens, people that you typicaly don't see, they're under paid, commonly can't get work in other industries for whatever reason.. it's hard work, and doesn't pay well.. i find it hillarious to see all of the "reality" shows about chefs, and cooking, making it so glamorous..

    is this really surprising? i remember years ago, people getting sick in a city in michigan, come to find out that some kid was doing number 2 in the taco meat.. unless you cleaned it, cooked it, anything can happen..

    My first job was at a Subway on a military base. We had a major roach problem and sometimes the roached would get on the bread and stuff. The head manager of all the stores in town gave us instructions not to throw the bread away and to serve it anyway because it cost money. I quit after no one chose to do anything about it.

    It would be almost as healthy to fast as to eat fast foods.
    The quality of what you eat, unless you partake of your own grown foods, should always be suspect, and beings that not many people today can grow or harvest all they need to survive, ya take your chances and assume.
    You have to eat and drink alphabet chemicals that you know very little about and place your trust in laws to protect your health, all the while knowing that in actuality you cannot trust laws, nor the ones who enforce or are supposed to abide by laws in their preperations before you consume them.
    So as an individual you can limit what where and whom you trust and the food groups you consume or you can say to hell with it and ignore the problem.
    Just be carefull your own inner voice does not drive you nuts while doing either.

    An age old problem being reported more often and only because of exploding social media. It is good, however, for us to reconsider the sources of the things we take in. Geez, the more I learn about the nature of Humanity, the more I see that for as much good as we can do, also the opposite is so. I guess ignorance really IS bliss.
