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.

    I bet that guy is a big Obama supporter. Obama people are always doing things like that. The amazing thing is an Obama voter actually had a job.

    But the guy in the video won't have to worry. Obama will take care of him. He is one of the new democrats. Young and spontaneous.

      Yeah I was not fond of that either. I am so glad I am one of those people who just does not eat out. I cook every night. This did put me off eating a salad for lunch though. I took it out and thought of those black shoes and no, put it back in the fridge.
      @banasy, Have you seen J j or J-a-y, J-a-y, I have tried to post to him and they will not let me. I guess he will have to choose another name?

      He was on the Make-A-Wish thread briefly, but they deleted him very quickly.
      That is when the thread was first posted.
      The man who posted the thread told him to post it elswhere because it was completely off-topic.

      Ted and Ned are the same person, obviously.

      And there's enough junk of lettuce already without having two feeto giganto putting their filth in....
      I agree; I cook nearly every night, and when I don't, the hubs does.

      I tried to answer him and it would not post under his name.
      The feet thing was too much for me.

    Definitly a democrat in that photo. I bet Obama will invite him over for a sit down to discuss how to rule America.

    Hey, I can't blame them. You have a crappy job, low pay, long hours, and they work you like a slave while the bosses take home way more than a Whopper in salary..... sure they shouldn't have done it. But that's what happens when you treat workers like french fries.
    They just got caught....... I'm sure this is just the outer layer of the onion ring.
