Reports in the UK claim that they have found evidence that ice at McDonald’s, KFC and Burger King outlets in UK said to be laced with feces.
The claim was put forward by BBC’s Watchdog show that found that ice at outlets of these fast food joints was found to contain faecal matter after testing.
Even though drinking water isn’t supposed to have any bacteria at all, four samples from Burger King and five from KFC were found to contain high levels of coliforms, which was worrying according to experts. After the shocking findings, KFC shut down ice machines in UK and is conducting its own probe in the matter.
Meanwhile Burger King assured that emphasis will be placed on training procedures for employees and McDonald’s was open to work with relevant bodies to prevent ice contamination.
