10Fast food Self Serve Kiosk

Many parents find themselves frequenting the local fast food restaurants more often than they care to admit. Whether they are drawn in by the lure of a peaceful coffee while their littles enjoy the play place or a child-friendly menu that offers a meal their kids may actually

eat.  No matter what draws parents in, often the promise of quicker service makes the self-serve kiosk an attractive option. Many people can pick up more than a quick meal by touching the kiosk.

In fact, an investigation conducted by British newspaper Metro showed traces of fecal matter on every McDonald's kiosk they sampled. The investigation was done on eight restaurants across the UK. While feces was found on each kiosk sampled, others also produced a range of bacteria including Staphylococcus, a contagious strain that can cause blood poisoning and toxic shock syndrome.

Easy Solution: Wash your hands before eating. This is an old fashioned rule that needs to come back in style.
