Food News: Lets Go To The Videotape
Every time we eat out, we are at the mercy of those who prepare our food. If the chef is having a bad day, you might just find a little something extra in your soup de jour. Give the waiter or waitress a hard time and your meal might come with a “special sauce” not on the menu. We assume or hope that the people who make our food would never taint it with any bodily excretions, but looking at the video of 2 Domino’s Pizza employees in North Carolina that is not the case. Watch at your own risk.
Im not sure how I should feel about this video. Should I be happy to be made aware that people are probably tampering with my food, or would I rather keep that naivety and keep thinking that nobody could be dirty or mean enough to blow a snot rocket on my sandwich? Maybe all establishments that serve food should have to follow Bear’s lead and put all food preparation on camera. Since this incident, the 2 employees on the video have been dismissed and charges will be or have already been made. Domino’s USA President Patrick Doyle has made a response to the incident, yet is too embarrassed to look the camera in the eye. He says “we’re re-examining all our hiring practices to make sure that people like this don’t make it into our stores”. Really? I think that’s just something he has to say because I sincerely doubt you can avoid something like this by re-examining hiring practices.
