A former McDonald’s employee, who is identified by the name Nick, posted a series of photos last week allegedly showing a disgusting McDonald’s kitchen, which are enough to turn anyone’s stomach.
The tray appears to be filthy, obviously painting the fast food chain in a rather negative light that health and safety officials would certainly not approve of.
“This came out of McDonald’s ice cream machine in case y’all were wondering…”, the employee who is identified as Nick on Twitter, wrote earlier this month.
Nick tells the outlet he discovered the tray full of mold a month ago, when he was instructed to clean the machine after making a mess. “I tried to clean the machine after I spilled it, so I pulled [the trays] out from the side,” he said. He then found more mold than ice cream in a tray that resides inside the machine. “I thought [the machine] would be cleaned regularly,” he added while mentioning managers are instructed to clean the machines, not crew members.
Nick told the Huffington Post that managers were supposed to clean the ice cream machine daily, but he never witnessed such a cleaning. He said unclean conditions in the kitchen were normal since he was hired in March.
“Sometimes my coworkers would drop the food and put it back on the bun,” Nick told the Huffington Post. “I’ve seen it happen several times.”
Nick said he believed he was unjustly fired for the post.
“I feel like I did nothing wrong,” he said. “I sacrificed my job to show people what they’re really eating.”
McDonald’s issued a statement to the Huffington Post.
“We are committed to running great restaurants that provide our customers with high quality food, service and a clean environment,” the statement reads. “This is a part of our soft serve equipment that does not come into contact with any food and is required to undergo regular and timely cleaning.”
