Another installment in fast food follies.
Mosied up to Arby’s for a roasted turkey sandwich for lunch today. Standing at the counter, I can see the guy building sandwiches. They always weigh the meat they put in the sandwiches. They used to put the meat in a fresh paper cup, then put the cup on the scales. When the weight was right, they would put the meat on the sandwich, and throw the paper cup away. Not anymore. Now they put the meat directly on the pan on the scale. This is the second or third time I have noticed them doing that. I wonder how often the pan on the scale is washed? Daily? Weekly? Ever?
In a somewhat related case, the city of Detroit voted against a proposed ordinance requiring restaurants to post a color coded card showing how the restaurant performed on Health Department inspections. Seems it is more important to not burden the “JCs”, than it is to inform customers whether a restaurant’s food handling practices are up to snuff, or not.
