Burger King Employee Takes Bath In Restaurant Sink, Health Dept NOT Amused August 12, 2008

Posted by nicedeb in Food, News.

I know that restaurant employees are encouraged to wash before handling food, but this goes too far:

Some workers at a Greene County restaurant are in hot water with the health department, after an employee took a bubble bath in a store sink.

Of course, this episode could have been kept on the down-low, but everybody wants their 15 minutes of internet fame:

“My first thought was oh my god,” said Greene County Health Commissioner, Mark McDonnell, when he saw the youtube video:

McDonnell immediately sent staff to restaurant to investigate the numerous health code violations.

He said the restaurant was aware of the incident and had already taken steps to clean up, including disposing of all the utensils and sanitizing the sink twice.

All of the employees involved were fired.

They should probably leave their employment at this restaurant off of their resumes.

On one hand, I understand why these people needed to be fired.

On the OTHER hand, I believe that fast food employees should be encouraged to bathe as often as possible. Especially if they’re working the grill.

Why would you have to through away the utensils?

I think I just need a new handle.

Don’t look at me…I wasn’t allowed anywhere near the sink.

You mean they actually have cleaning equipment at a BK?

Disgusting and unrelated fast food story:

When my dad’s company was in business, we had our offices across the street from a Jack In The Box. My dad wanted a fountain soda with lotsa ice, and he told me to go there to get it for him, since JiTB had self serve soda if you went inside.

Well, I had just been handed the cup by the counter lady, when I see some 300lb shemale worker walk out of the Ladies’ Room and head to the grill. She loudly exclaimed, “Wow! I feel ten pounds lighter!”

I will never eat anything from a fast food grill to this day.

I wonder if these stories beat Geoff’s DQ adventure.

I once got busy in a BK kitchen sink.
