Fecal bacteria found at United Kingdom branches of McDonald's, KFC & Burger King

McDonald's Would you like to supersize that

It was only three weeks ago that Starbucks iced drinks were found to be contaminated with fecal bacteria coming from human poop, as reported by the BBC's consumer series Watchdog. At KFC, five of the samples contained "significant levels" of the bacteria while four samples at Burger King yielded significant levels. Seven of 10 KFC restaurants sampled in the United Kingdom had fecal bacteria on their ice, according to a new report. According to the Liverpool Echo, the news organization sampled ice at 10 random McDonald's, KFC and Burger King restaurants around England.

McDonald's also told the BBC that bacteriology and food safety professor Tom Humphrey had said that no levels of the bacterium that most reliably indicate fecal contamination were uncovered in McDonald's ice samples.

An expert labelled the findings "extremely worrying" as drinking water is unfit for human consumption if it contains any more than zero coliforms which puts into perspective just how risky these results are.

A Burger King spokesperson added: "This report is an opportunity for us to emphasise our training procedures and ensure all operations and safety standards are upheld in all Burger King restaurants".

KFC has completely shut down the ice machines that were serving the poo-tainted ice for inspection and reinforced the importance of following strict procedures regarding health to all employees, per the Metro report.

"It's extremely worrying", he said.

It also suggests that workers at the chains are not keeping themselves clean and that they "have dirty bare hands", he said. "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".

"We are awaiting the results of independent testing of the ice that will confirm they are back up to the standards we expect", a KFC representative tells the site.
