Top 10 DISTURBING Fast Food Stories!!!

Top 10 DISTURBING Fast Food Stories!!!

There’s no doubt that fast food is a tasty
and convenient option that’s always there for you in a pinch. But despite this, there’s plenty of horror
stories tagged onto many a fast food establishment. Some horror stories are centered around someone’s
order being tainted with some kind of disgusting foreign object. Yet there just as many horror stories that
are much worse than a careless employee royally messing up your order. These are the top 10 fast food horror stories
that might cause you to lose your appetite. Subway And Their “Chicken” While this massively popular sandwich chain
was founded in the U.S., this actually happened up north in Canada. Back in February 2017, CBC conducted an investigation
on Subway’s chicken sandwiches, and the results left everyone stunned. The company’s chicken breast meat contained
only 54 percent actual chicken, while their chicken strips only contained 43 percent. These results were so shocking to CBC that
they even went so far as to retesting the DNA of Subway’s chicken another five separate
times to ensure that they received the same results. Sure enough, the test results remained the
same, making Subway’s chicken look disgusting compared to other fast food companies. Whatever wasn’t chicken was said to be soy
and legal fillers. In response to this shocking revelation, Subway
immediately disputed the claims. They said in a statement to CBC that they
simply didn’t believe the test results, save for their chicken’s soy content. Still, Subway insisted that they only use
100 percent real chicken in all of their products that call for it. But the American-based fast-food chain also
said in the same statement that they would look into their supplier to make sure that
their chicken was of great quality for customers. Intrigued yet? Hit that subscribe button and ring that bell

Taco Bell has faced serious problems with the quality of their lettuce in the past. This happened back in late 2006, specifically
in Taco Bell locations across Delaware, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and South
Carolina. According to the Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention (CDC), 71 consumers who had previously eaten at a Taco Bell in one of
the aforementioned states had to be hospitalized between November 20th to December 6th, 2006. Reportedly, consumers who fell ill had symptoms
such as abdominal cramps, diarrhea, and a high fever. Eight of out the consumers that became sick
even developed a case of kidney failure, thus putting them into severe danger. Both Taco Bell and the CDC began investigating
the problem as soon as it came to light. By December 14th, it was discovered that five
Taco Bell locations were suffering from an E. coli outbreak that was making some of their
consumers sick. Researchers determined that Taco Bell’s lettuce-
which came out of California- was infected with E. coli. In response, the states affected by this terrible
outbreak created and later implemented some stricter laws that have to do with how lettuce
is handled. Jack-In-The-Box’s Burgers Are Rare — Too
Rare Jack-in-the-Box, a popular fast food joint
based in San Diego, California- faced a major disease outbreak in 1993 that devastated many
across the United States. According to The New York Times, locations
in California, Idaho, Nevada, and Washington were tainted by a large E.coli outbreak. This disease wound up infecting over 600 people
across those four states and even resulted in the unfortunate death of four children. Jack-in-the-Box’s stock dropped to a pathetic
30 percent in the wake of these tragedies and even resulted in unaffected customers
losing their temper on the establishment, calling them baby killers and much more. When this scandal came to light, Jack-in-the-Box’s
executives were quick to claim that the reason for their large E. coli outbreak was due to
an issue with their meat supplier. But others disagreed, pointing out that the
fast-food company had a bad habit of not cooking their hamburgers properly. In fact, both the United States Agriculture
Department and other state officials made an official recommendation to have hamburgers
cooked to an internal temperature of 155 degrees (which is state approved), rather than 140
degrees (which is Federally approved). This would effectively kill off this disease
and other bacteria. Golden Corral Likes To Use Dumpster Meat Over
Clean Meat Golden Corral faced some harsh criticism during
the summer of 2013 and it was all thanks to a viral video. In Port Orange, Florida, a video somehow hit
the Internet that includes a so-called “rogue employee” showing off loads of raw meat. This doesn’t sound awful until you quickly
see that it’s right next to an outdoor dumpster. This video was picked up by many news organizations
and it immediately stirred up controversy. It didn’t help that the video also featured
the “rogue employee” in question bragging about this food being served to consumers
in the near future. Fortunately, Golden Corral responded to the
video swiftly. They fired a manager of the Port Orange location,
and the company owner insisted that none of the food shown was ever served to consumers,
nor was it ever going to be intended for consumers. The scandal seemed to die down considerably
soon after, leaving many to suspect that it didn’t affect Golden Corral too badly. Still, it’s probably going to be hard for
people who saw the damning video to forget the disturbing and disgusting images they
saw firsthand. Domino’s Employees Trick Customers By “Tampering”
With Their Food Some pranks are funny, others, not so much. Two Domino’s employees in Conover, North Carolina
learned this valuable lesson the hard way back in April 2009. A YouTube video went viral and spread across
many more social media platforms of employees preparing food while performing disgusting
acts for the camera. Such acts included one employee putting cheese
up his nose, nasal mucus being placed on the food, and violating many health-code standards. Throughout the video, another employee provides
colorful commentary for each vile thing her colleague does on-camera. The offending employees insisted that none
of the tainted food shown made it to a consumer, but it didn’t matter. The (now deleted) video was seen by millions
of now grossed out viewers. According to The New York Times, the fallout
for Domino’s as a result of this viral video was immediate and severe. Both employees were fired, and then arrested
and charged with delivering prohibited foods. Meanwhile, Domino’s disowned the offending
employees as they tried hard to restore their tarnished reputation. Not responding immediately to the crisis didn’t
help matters, as it became painfully clear that this scandal wouldn’t simply go away
on its own. While things seem much better now, it took
a long time for Domino’s to repair their image. Some Ice Drinks Are Full Of Crap — Literally It’s bad enough when one fast food joint does
something questionable. It’s another thing when that same thing happens
at more than one location. That was the predicament faced by three popular
coffee chains in the United Kingdom – Caffe Nero, Costa Coffee, and Starbucks. In June 2017, there was a BBC consumer series
on the aforementioned franchises that concerned each respective brand’s iced drinks. Samples taken of multiple iced drinks from
the three companies found a truly disgusting thing, high levels of fecal bacteria in the
ice. Never mind the fact that it shouldn’t even
be there in the first place, but the levels found were disturbing, to put it mildly. To understand just how bad it was, 7 out of
10 samples of ice from Costa Coffee were contaminated with bacteria found in feces. As for Caffe Nero and Starbucks, 3 out of
10 tested samples contained the same bacteria. Given that this specific bacteria is notorious
for being the source of human diseases, there was great concern for consumers’ safety. Each coffee brand responded similarly. Cafe Nero and Starbucks both insisted that
they had launched respective investigations on the matter, while Costa Coffee went further
by changing how ice is handled and getting new ice storage equipment. TGI Friday’s Can’t Handle Their Liquor Laws concerning food are pretty strict (and
rightfully so), but laws concerning alcohol are arguably stricter for understandable reasons. It’s not just for serious matters either. Even something that looks trivial on the surface
can result in massive consequences for a fast food joint. However, no one seemed to know or care at
TGI Friday’s. Back in July 2013, USA Today revealed that
eight locations around New Jersey served consumers alcoholic drinks that were made with lower-shelf
alcohol, rather than the premium alcohol that they expected and had paid for, too. The investigation had begun in January of
that year when investigators tested about 150 different alcoholic drinks from the offending
TGI Friday’s locations. As a result, they pleaded no contest to substitution
of a drink and were given a hefty $500 000 fine. 250 or so liquor bottles were confiscated
as well. TGI Friday’s responded to this massive scandal
by making operational adjustments and creating new training programs so that they adhere
to the company’s bar and beverage standards. It seems like the massive fast food company
has managed to put the matter behind them, as no more similar accusations have come their
way. Let’s hope it continues to stay that way. McDonald’s Happy Meals Contained Something
Unexpected When many people think of McDonald’s Happy
Meals, they think of tasty food that comes with a toy for kids to enjoy and play with. But a location in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
had one rogue employee who would make Happy Meals anything but appropriate for kids. Back in January 2014, the Los Angeles Times
reported that a female employee would overcharge Happy Meals for consumers that said, “I’d
like to order a toy.” Why? Well, the offending employee would give the
consumer their Happy Meal with a side of heroin when ordered at the drive-thru. When local police received a tip about what
was going on, undercover officers completed an order as such. Not only did they pay $82 for what should’ve
been around a $5 meal, but they received 10 baggies of heroin in their Happy Meal. It was discovered that this was a one-woman
operation, with the restaurant owner oblivious to what was going on. The employee was fired and soon arrested. She was charged with criminal use of a cellphone,
delivery of heroin, possession with intent to deliver heroin, and possession of heroin
and marijuana after the latter drug was found on her person. The owner of this McDonald’s restaurant insisted
that this didn’t reflect on them and that they cooperated fully with authorities throughout
their investigation. Burger King Uses Horse Meat In Their Burgers For this piece, we travel across the pond
again to Burger King in both the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland. In January 2013, USA Today revealed that Burger
King’s burgers weren’t made out of 100 percent beef like the massive fast food chain insisted. The Food Safety Authority of Ireland tested
many frozen burgers and found something truly disturbing — horse DNA in over one-third
of samples from Burger King locations across the UK and Ireland. Given that people from both countries typically
do not eat horse meat, this was upsetting for many consumers who may have eaten a burger
that wasn’t entirely made out of beef. Burger King conducted an investigation, where
it was discovered that their supplier, Silvercrest Foods, was responsible for horse meat being
in the former company’s burgers. So, Burger King quickly dropped them as a
supplier for good to ensure that the issue would not be a problem any longer. As for Silvercrest Foods, they responded to
the scandal by shutting down their production line and recalling over 10 million burgers
in and around the UK and Ireland. Both companies managed to fix this problem
quickly in their respective manners, and the problem hasn’t popped up again. Chi-Chi’s Serves Contaminated Scallions There’s no doubt that the worst fast food
horror stories around are the ones where people died as the result of a company’s actions. Case in point: Mexican fast food joint Chi-Chi’s
came under heavy fire in November 2003. According to The New York Times, a Chi-Chi’s
in Beaver County, Pennsylvania had a massive outbreak of hepatitis A, a potentially fatal
disease that affects the liver. How massive was this outbreak? About 660 people were infected with this disease,
which tragically led to four people dying. It’s been said to be the biggest outbreak
of foodborne hepatitis A in the United States, according to the CDC. An investigation into the crisis revealed
that the hepatitis A came from contaminated scallions from that specific Chi-Chi’s location. It voluntarily closed down shortly after the
scandal occurred. But Chi-Chi’s didn’t seem to be able to
bounce back from this, as there are no more locations across the United States, or Canada
either. Any locations that do exist are located in
Belgium, Kuwait, and the United Arab Emirates. While some fast food companies are able to
recover from a catastrophic crisis, it’s clear that this one was simply too difficult for
Chi-Chi’s to come back from. No need to worry about illnesses from watching

  2. I work in a cinema and fecal matter was found in ice in another branch of the chain I work for. Lucky they didn't check my ice >:)

  3. In July a McDonalds manager was extremely rude to me so I filed a complaint with corporate. The next time I went in the same manager was working the drive through and he tampered with my food after seeing it was me. I took pictures of everything and filed multiple complaints with McDonald’s corporate and they have refused to investigate or take action. They just send me a form letter about sorry they didn’t give good service so the manager is still there contaminating peoples food and possibly poisoning people and McDonald’s doesn’t care.

  8. this is how you eat healthy, you just watch lots of these videos. Not sure why people have the need to always go to fast food chains and regular restaurants. making food at home is much easier, fast, money saving and clean (based on your clean habits). I have a friend who is overweight and eats fast food everyday (sometimes three times a day) i gotta show him this vid, but doubt he'll change.
