Feces Found On Every Touch Self-Serve Touch Screen At Every McDonald's Location Tested ⋆ Terez Owens : #1 Sports Gossip Blog in the World

British publication Metro swabbed self-serve touchscreens at eight McDonald’s locations in London and Birmingham. Traces of feces were found on every McDonald’s touchscreen tested. All of the displays had coliforms, or the bacteria found in feces. There was also the bacteria proteus, which is found in both human and animal poo. Besides poo, there was also listeria bacteria present, which can cause stillbirths and miscarriages in pregnant women. One screen even tested positive for staphylococcus, a contagious bacteria that can cause blood poisoning and toxic shock syndrome. Dr. Matawele, who conducted the investigation and analysis, was most concerned about staphylococcus because of how quickly it can spread and that the bacteria might be becoming resistant to antibiotics. “It starts around people’s noses, if they touch their nose with their fingers and then transfer it to the touchscreen someone else will get it, and if they have an open cut which it gets into, then it can be dangerous,” Dr. Matawele said of staphylococcus. They only tested touchscreens at eight McDonald’s locations, so this is a very small sample size. This isn’t necessarily a condemnation on McDonald’s as much as it is on their customers. But you should probably have some hand sanitizer on you for when you touch any high-traffic public place or even money.Checkout the video below.-TO
