Props for the guy who shot that video, and thought more about public health then his own job.
I had a restaurant job for many years, and I think it was relatively sanitary, but when employees are getting paid minimum wage to prepare your food I would expect the worst.

As for the minimum wage thing, I don't think that makes a difference on whether someone is sanitary with your food or not, like I and others have said, it happens at the nice restaurants too, and many of the people in those places make a pretty good salary / pay check.

Super props to that dude.
Stopped eating fast food 10 years ago. Now I don't really even frequent restraunts much. If I do I try to stick to the organic ones. People at those places seem to care more about food preparation/ingrediants. I find cooking at home more enjoyable, cheaper, and better tasting anyways.
Heard a talk show program talk about the McRib. It contains over 70 ingrediants. There is no meat in the McRib. It's pig intestines innards including intestines (poop inside those), a binder used in styrofoam production, and a chemical preserve that is banned in many countries.

I do still eat at restaurants, but I know most of the owners and chefs at these restaurants, and they serve mostly local foods. I am not really afraid of pig intestine, as I use it to case my homemade sausages, but I want nothing to do with the random stuff they use to form those fake ribs.

Agree with everyone. Anton that has worked in a kitchen knows what goes on. Especially in crappy fast food joints. You have young under paid employees preparing garbage.
Much more satisfying to cook. Go out less, but to higher end places that really care about their food and would fire someone on the spot for messing with it.

No offense to you, Archy, but naturalsociety articles do exaggerate things. The core info is good, but that writing is a turnoff.
