    Too Old.. uh oh.. this cant be good

    I found this in another forum I am on...

    OK, the results are in for the years dirtiest dining establishment. This will make you think the next time you want greasy fast food. The full story is here.

    However, since some of you don't care much for reading, I'll paste the good parts from #10 down to #1 Dirtiest Restaurant Chain!

    10: TACO BELL
    The 100 Taco Bells we sampled had the fewest total critical violations, 91, making it the best performer in our survey. But it was not without problems. Recurring violations included dirty food preparation counters and rodent droppings.

    The golden arches, the 100 McDonald’s we looked at came in with a total of 136 critical violations. Some didn’t have a trained and certified food handler on the job, required by law in many states.

    8. KFC.
    The 100 KFCs we sampled tallied up 157 critical violations, and two thirds of the “finger lickin’ good” restaurants had at least one critical violation. Remember, it was at a KFC, the Health Department says, little Gianni Velotta picked up salmonella poisoning last year. We’ve now learned that another child was also sickened there, and the same restaurant has since been cited for three more critical violations.
    While the Velotta’s have settled a lawsuit against the restaurant, a lawyer for the owner of the franchise contends the salmonella cases did not originate there.

    7. SUBWAY
    The 100 Subways we looked at totaled 160 critical violations. A recurring problem at the sandwich chain was improper food holding temperatures.

    The 100 Jack in the Box restaurants had a total of 164 critical violations. A Ventura, Calif., Jack in the Box was a trouble spot. It had several customer complaints of food borne illness.

    The 100 Dairy Queens we examined totaled 184 total critical violations. One Dairy Queen in Hampton, Va., rang up a number of critical violations last summer for grime, debris, and a inaccurate thermometer.

    4. HARDEES.
    The 100 Hardee’s tallied 206 critical violations. Again and again inspectors cited the presence of insects and rodents.

    3. WENDY’S
    100 Wendy’s had 206 critical violations. That’s the same as Hardees, but more Wendy’s restaurants had violations.
    At a Wendy’s in Mesa, Ariz., inspectors noted repeated problems with food holding temperatures, mice droppings on the shelves, bare hand food contact, and one food borne illness complaint.

    2. ARBY’S
    The 100 Arby’s had 210 critical violations. The roast beef specialists had recurring violations for improper hand-washing and employees handling ready-to-eat foods with their bare hands.

    So which fast food chain finished number one on Dateline’s dirty dining list? It’s Burger King. The 100 Burger Kings we sampled rang up a whopping 241 total critical violations. Health inspectors cited a Virginia Burger King for 14 separate critical violations: employees not washing their hands, uncovered food in the fridge, grime and debris found on this ice chute, and on the drink machine at the drive-thru widow. We observed one employee scooping ice into a cup with his bare hands, an apparent critical violation.

    The 1,000 restaurants we sampled totaled 1,755 critical violations, and 613 restaurants were cited at least once. That’s more than 60 percent with problems inspectors consider potentially hazardous to your health.

    I think all this is rather scary to say the least!

    After seeing some of the pictures of the bilges in Too Old's boat, I have no doubt that his restuarants are spotless. I'd happily patronize one. (Though, in all fairness Too Old's boats are clean partly through lack of use, while the kitchen's at his BK's probably do get utilized! )

    No disrespect to anyone here who may work in fast food, but let's face it, it's a dirty business.

    There are plenty of exceptions I know, from what I read of Fred, he's obviouslyly is one of the more scrupulous business owners.

    But the fact remains, a great many are barely on the verge of being condemned. You can't be there all the time and keep an eye on everything.

    I don't think anyone of us could fool ourselves into thinking that a $5.15/hr fast food industry professional really gives a rats azz about cleanliness.

    Hell, you give the majority of high school punks an oppourtunity to wipe their azz with a burger bun for a few laughs, they will.

    Come on down to Texas. Every resturant down here is a Mexican resturant.

    If you doubt this, just go look in any kitchen. One guess what you will find working there.
