Nobody knows a restaurant better than the employees, and it seems some of them are speaking out about their workplaces. The Huffington Post highlighted some posts found on Reddit, and some of them might make you think twice about what you’re eating.
Chicken Nuggets: Some of the grossest stories on this thread talked about the dubious material nuggets are generally made of. As noted by 4ScienceandReason,pictures and videos like these have already scared a lot of us off of chicken nuggets forever. Just in case that wasn’t enough, this comment by Dfunkatron might seal the deal for you, “When I worked at McDonald’s, I accidentally left a whole bag of about 100 chicken nuggets out on a counter for way too long. They melted. Into a pool of liquid. I never understood why. But they were completely indiscernible as being the nuggets i once knew.”
Wendy’s Chili: While not as traditionally disgusting as some other fast food traditions, we found Cozmo23’s description of the chili recipe at Wendy’s to be pretty stomach-churning — “The meat comes from hamburger patties that sat on the grill too long to serve to customers. They take them and put them in a bin and then throw them in the fridge. When the chili is made they take it out, boil it, chop it up and dump them in the chili.”
Vegetarians Beware: While a lot of comments admitted to using the same grill/spatula/knife on vegetarian and meat items alike, this comment from user attack_goblin made us gasp a little extra: “I used to work at a restaurant where we deep-fried the Gardenburger patties in the same oil we deep-fried the bacon.”
