One Hell of a Meal Breaker
Mealbreaker (n.): a nasty, non-edible surprise found in food while it is being eaten; often lawsuit-provoking, sometimes fabricated, always disgusting.
I’m not going to go off on a rant about everything that’s broken and wrong with our food system. (F*ck you, Monsanto). I won’t go into gory details about the painful and humiliating experiences I’ve endured because of my allergy to Soy. (No, really F*CK YOU, Monsanto). The deception surrounding our Food System in this country is my Windmill and I will start doing battle in time. For now, I wanted to educate my readers to another disturbing trend.
As if it’s not enough for us to be ignoring the blatant poisoning of our food supply, now it seems we’re sabotaging each other via our addiction to fast food. There have been a rash of stories lately about customers finding non-edible things in their food. KFC, McDonalds, Subway are few Fast Food chains who’ve come under fire recently. Laura Clark’s 3 year old daughter, Aubrey ate a piece of glass with her turkey sandwich cutting her mouth, cheeks and tongue. There’s no permanent damage but good luck getting that kid to touch another sandwich again.
The b*tch of it is, he wasn’t the first one to find such a tasty morsel from KFC. A 19 year old college student from the U.K. found something nearly identical in his order a few weeks earlier. What’s really interesting is if you read through the Reddit thread there’s been 10 additional similar KFC incidents. ………….Yeah.
I wouldn’t feed KFC to my dog and if he could speak, I’m sure he’d thank me.
And while we’re on the topic of MealBreakers, McDonald’s has had two seperate incidents in the past year: one involving a a nose ring in a 4 year old’s breakfast burrito and another lucky patron found a a razor blade in her McDonald's breakfast meal . I’m assuming these customers weren’t “loving it”.
I’m going to save my outrage and pontificating for another time but be warned; I’m gonna go all nuclear on this topic very soon.
It’s time for us to wake up.
