Before you read this... let's be real for a second... many people don't wash their hands! This is NOT McDonald's fault... but this is so gross!
The Metro published findings from an investigation they did on random samplings of U.K. McDonald's touch screens and what they found was gross! According to the paper, they swabbed the new self-order machines in six different England locations;
"We were all surprised how much gut and [fecal] bacteria there was on the touchscreen machines. These cause the kind of infections that people pick up in hospitals."
Here's the good news, a McDonald's rep commented "our self-order screens are cleaned frequently throughout the day. All of our restaurants also provide facilities for customers to wash their hands before eating."
People... WASH YOUR HANDS!
