I went to get supper at BK last night and saw on the supplemental menu that they are selling pecan pies now (my dd is pa and tna). I asked about it and she said they are individually boxed, and sold that way. My concern is employees that are eating the pie and maybe not washing or not washing well enough, or when they clean tables that someone has gotten pie or pecans on and then cleaning the counter where they prepare the food with the same cloth. I should have gone to wendy's next door but at our usual BK (I was in a different town) there isn't another option so I never thought about it until afterwards when I was driving away and saw the wendy's sign. I hope it's just a holiday promo and not a new permanent thing.

The thing is that any food worker could have eaten something with peanuts/peanut butter just before coming into work too, or on their break. They could've brought a snickers bar from home. That is always a risk you take when going out to eat at a restaurant, and it is a very scary thing.

Yeah-I know. I keep telling myself that. It really is scary and I always hope that people will at least wash well before touching someone else's food.

It is supposed to be a health regulation that food workers including servers wash their hands at the beginning of their shift, when they eat, when they smoke and when they go to the bathroom.
I think this is followed a lot because my kids have worked in restaurants and this has always been a requirement.
Most Wendy's I have been at, the food handlers wear plastic gloves. This is also true at Subway. I have never seen it at McDonald's or Burger King.
