I’ll Just Order Over The Counter Thanks – Feces Found On Every Self-Serve Touchscreen At Every McDonald’s Location Tested.

McDonald’s is up shit creek without a paddle after a new report was released that revealed every self-serve touchscreen at every location tested was found to have feces on them. Ba Da Ba Ba Bah, I’m poopin’

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.
