A McDonald’s employee from Laplace, Louisiana was recently fired after tweeting repulsive pictures of the ice cream machine at the Louisiana location where he worked.

The photos quickly went viral, prompting an internet backlash for the fast food giant.

 

The former employee, who preferred to be referred to only as ‘Nick,” posted a picture of the ice cream machine’s drip tray, which is obviously covered in filth.

Nick says store managers are supposed to clean it but that he never saw that happen in the 4 months he worked there, reported HuffPost.

FoodBeast observed that the filthy ooze doesn’t end up in the ice cream, “but you never want to see photos like that coming out of a restaurant.”

Nick posted another picture showing the filth is not from the grease trap as some people had suggested.

He followed with more pictures from his establishment, including goo-covered floors…

 

Nick also told HuffPost there were other sanitary issues at the McDonald’s where he worked. “Sometimes my coworkers would drop the food and put it back on the bun. I’ve seen it happen several times.”

He went a step further on Twitter, sharing images of McDonald’s frozen food before it’s cooked. “Since I’m exposing McDonald’s I might as well show y’all what y’all really eating… fresh out the freezer.”

As he clarified in an additional tweet, “I mean it’s no surprise that it’s frozen but this shit isn’t even real meat or fish.”

 

There are two different McDonald’s locations in Laplace, but Nick declined to specify which one was his former employer.

“Louisiana Department of Health records show two McDonald’s in Laplace,” HuffPost noted. “The most recent health inspections in online records, from 2015, show one location had three ‘critical corrected’ infractions, including cross-contamination of raw and ready-to-eat food, improper storage of toxic chemicals and unclean surfaces and utensils.”

 

A year-and-a-half-long Dateline investigation of ten of the top fast food chains in the country examined“100 restaurants from each chain, 1,000 in all, spanning 38 states” and found that “the 100 McDonald’s we looked at came in with a total of 136 critical violations. Some didn’t have a trained and certified food handler on the job, required by law in many states.” McDonald’s had fewer violations than places like Subway, Burger King, and KFC, but all ten chains surveyed displayed numerous questionable practices, reported The Anti Media.

McDonald’s is no stranger to criticism of its food handling and ingredients. Just recently, a BBC investigation of McDonald’s and other fast food locations in the U.K. revealed fecal bacteria in the restaurants’ iced drinks. McDonald’s has also faced scrutiny for the low quality and unhealthy ingredients they use, from beef loaded with antibiotics to a “healthy” kale salad introduced last year that contained more calories than the chain’s Big Mac.
