Fecal Bacteria Found In Drinks Sold By Major Fast Food Restaurants Like McDonald's

Welp, there goes the "yes" when I am asked if I would like to make it a meal and super-size that drink! UHHHHHHHH.....NO! 

A recently aired episode of BBC show Watchdog reveals that several branches of three big fast food chains tested positive for presence of fecal coliforms on drinking water and ice samples used for its beverages.

According to Watchdog investigators, 10 branches of McDonald's, Burger King, and KFC across the United Kingdom were randomly selected and returned shocking results with three, six, and seven branches, respectively, tested positive for fecal bacteria.

Among the results, four Burger King and five KFC branches revealed significant levels of contamination, which is saying a lot since there is no safe "minimum" level of contamination when it comes to the pathogenic bacteria, especially when it is for human consumption.

"It's extremely worrying. When we're finding the sorts of numbers we're finding here, you have to look at the people making the ice, handling the ice, which they then transfer into customers' drinks," Tony Lewis expressed. Lewis is the Head of Policy and Education at the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health.
