Eating a donut is already dangerous enough. I mean, this is the description of a donut: “a small cake of sweetened or, sometimes, unsweetened dough fried in deep fat,” and that’s just a basic donut. Now, you have donuts with breakfast cereal pasted on top, donuts filled with chocolate, and donuts with pieces of bacon sprinkled on top.
You’re always taking a chance when you shove a donut in your mouth, but if you purchase those donuts from Dunkin’ Donuts, the chance of serious illness might be even greater.
The video you see below has gone viral on Facebook. A former employee shared the video, which was reportedly taken back in November of last year.
Dunkin’ Donuts confirmed this video was legit, and they want you all to know it has been addressed.
“We are aware of the video and we take matters like this very seriously. The actions seen in the video at a franchised Dunkin’ Donuts restaurant are absolutely inconsistent with our strict food safety standards and requirements.
According to the franchisee, upon hearing of this incident in November 2015, he investigated the matter and met with the employee to discuss the fact that the donuts should have been immediately disposed of in keeping with our standards.”
Should you really need to remind your employees not to serve food that has been dropped on the floor? Makes you wonder what else they are doing.
