Over 60% of Major Fast Food Places had a Critical Food Health Violation in Last 18 Months

‘Dateline’ hidden cameras investigate cleanliness of America’s top 10 fast food chains

Taco Bell and McDonalds were the cleanest.

Burger King, Arby's and Wendy's were the least clean and safe places to eat.

The 100 Burger Kings we sampled rang up a whopping 241 total critical violations. Health inspectors cited a Virginia Burger King for 14 separate critical violations: employees not washing their hands, uncovered food in the fridge, grime and debris found on this ice chute, and on the drink machine at the drive-thru widow.

This was a national 'Slime in the Ice Machine' survey that covered about 1 out of 75 major fast food chain restaurant locations.
