Fast-Food Ice Has More Bacteria Than Toilets

Next time you order a drink, make sure to ask for no ice. A new study by the Daily Mail found that six out of 10 of Britain’s most popular chains serve ice that contains more bacteria than their toilet water. The ice was from McDonalds, Burger King, KFC, Starbucks, Café Rouge, and Nando’s. Four had high enough levels of microbes to be described as a “hygiene risk.” Experts say the results stem from the ice machines being cleaned less often than the toilets or from employees failing to wash their hands.
