    That's what I get for taking a dump in the runoff tray.
  • If you put enough alcohol in your soda; ya got no problems
  • How does fecal contamination get up* into the tubes inside the machine?* Are the employees squatting over the top of the machine and dropping a deuce?

    Or about 2 really BIG cans!
    (Do we really need "Big Gulps?" "Yeah, gimme something in a depth-charged sized drink!")
  • As long as the beer taps are okay, I'll be fine.
  • How is feces getting in the nozzles?! Maybe i don't want to know. Shouldn't have read this before lunch...or even after lunch...or ever.

    People are disgusting creatures.
  • Stupid reporter. There was no fecal contamination. There was fecal coliform bacteria contamination. These bacteria are all over our skin. Yes they come out of our butthole, but they don't just hang out there. There are more bacterial cells in the human boty than there are human cells. We literally team with life.

    You don't know me, I do what I want!

    Don't judge me.
  • I know this. I see the people buying them. Yet I keep getting fountain soda. Hot dogs too. Horrible dregs of society using the self serve dog rollers, dirty hands, band-aided fingers. Yet I leave a bar late night and join them in eating an e.coli dog.
  • "Four out of the ten soda machines we tested-40 percent-were squirting out liquids contaminated with fecal bacteria and e-coli.

    We're not going to tell you the names of those restaurants and gas stations."

    Because that's what an actual reporter would do. We're just trying to scare the poo out of you so you'll read our article. And cue rim shot! Double rim shot!
  • I used to work at a place that made those synthetic corks for wine bottles. You should have seen the bio-masses of fungus I would clean out of the circulation pumps for the cooling water baths. Enjoy your wine with your Thanksgiving dinner!
  • blatz514: If you put enough alcohol in your soda; ya got no problems


    I don't know what I'm talking about, but from what I've read; most drinking alcohol won't do it. It needs to be 70-80% concentration to effectively kill germs. If you're drinking Bacardi 151, you might accomplish something, but you'd be diluting it with your mixer. Better to drink the alcohol straight and skip the mixer. Who needs the empty calories, anyway?

    It's more like 70-80 proof, which is 35-40%. Vodak: is there anything it can't do?

    More seriously, although the comment about fecal bacteria being all over our skin is true, employees are supposed to be washing their hands before working with this equipment, so the bacteria shouldn't be getting into the pipes. I'm not a germophobe by any stretch of the imagination; the overuse of antibacterials has done a lot of harm to us as a society. But they do have their place, and food-handling is part of that.

    Sharts.
  • You don't want to know what a beer line looks like when it hasn't been cleaned often enough.
  • Think soda fountains are bad...

    Having worked in a restaurant, how often do you think they clean the iced tea tub?

    Hint: almost never.

    -Well, they'll throw some soap in it, but good luck them actually disassembling the nozzle and scrubbing it out. The first night I had dish duty, I did that... I'm fairly certain I was the first person to clean that thing in several years.

    /and we had a clean restaurant compared to pretty much anywhere else.
  • Bruxellensis: You don't want to know what a beer line looks like when it hasn't been cleaned often enough.


    Nice, I bet it's probably worse than the tea tub nozzle. Where I worked, the waitresses were required to clean the alcohol related items, I bet it's never been cleaned ever.

    I think it's more along the lines of people not washing their hands after using the restroom and then groping everything in sight.

    The nozzles are also the perfect breeding grounds for mold.

    It's what happens when an employee takes a shiat, doesn't wash his hands, then reloads the syrup.
