To all mh ice lovers, I want you to be careful when eating ice.

I just found out that they could be a lot of bacteria in the ice in the fast food restaurants.

chop with caution

Think about the majority of fast food workers.....they're teenagers. Ice bins get left open, things fall in........but just like anything you'd grab at an out and eat restaurant, this can happen. I like the places where you fill your own cup up out of a machine that makes its own ice.

Life goes on...

watch your ice sources

This article was mentioned on "Penn & Teller's Bullshit!"

I watch when I go to restraunts, what kind of ice machines they have.

The kind that MAKE the ice and DISPENSE it from the same machine are less likely to be crawling with bacteria than the ice machines that only dispenese the ice, and are filled by employees.

I've seen employees in some fast food places carry 2 buckets of ice from another room, sit one bucket on the FLOOR while pouring the other bucket of ice in the machine, and then add the second bucket which has been on the floor.

No big deal?

I dobut if the employee stopped to wash thier hands before getting the second round of buckets, AND they stacked the buckets inside of one another so that they had one hand free on the trip back to the ice maker.

If its gotta be filled, I settle for milk or coffee, because I normally have my own little zip-loc baggie of ice with me anyhow. :oops:

Yeah, the best ice is in countries like India or Nepal. Diarrhoea included.

Yep, I agree. Don't try ice in Asia.

If you are in Asia, you can prepare the ice from the bottled water by yourself. It's the only way to keep yourself safe.
