Wow ... we all knew fast food was bad for us, but really? For starters, their burgers can apparently last for 20 years ... longer than the average vehicle. Next up: you would have to walk for seven hours to burn off a Super Sized Coke. Seriously.
Heck, even pet food can be healthier than McDonalds according to a recent study - and the list goes on. So, before you head out for your next set of burger and fries read this and be amazed (or utterly disgusted). Of course you could also watch Supersize Me but this list arguably tops even some of his encounters.
In 2007, the employees of an Orlando-area McDonald’s were caught on camera pouring milk into the milkshake machine out of a bucket labeled “Soiled Towels Only.” That particular restaurant had already been cited for 12 different sanitary violations. Though McDonald’s proudly stands by its safety standards, and not every restaurant has such notorious incidents, the setting of a fast food restaurant staffed with low-paid employees at a high turnover rate arguably encourages bending the rules. (McDonald’s isn’t alone in this, of course - Burger King is actually ranked as the dirtiest of all the fast food chains.)
