Going Out For Sunday Brunch . . .?

We have all been aware of the problems in the food industry over the last year or so with the everlasting food trauma with Chipotle and now MacDonald’s. Seems that their problems are not isolated cases and too many restaurants and other places providing prepared food to the public are, themselves, potential distributors of any number of food borne illnesses.

I’ve had three cases of food poisoning in my life and from three well-known restaurants. In one case, I actually called the place and they said they were sorry and would like to give me and the family a free dinner there. Uh, no thank you! When my stomach stops churning along with the rest of the problems, I may probably take a longer route when shopping to avoid even seeing that particular restaurant. A friend was deathly sick in the hospital for a month after having a sandwich at a restaurant that I bet most everyone reading this post has been to at one time or another. The shiny tables out front don’t always reflect the truth of what is going on behind the scenes.

One thought on “Going Out For Sunday Brunch . . .?

  1. The summer season is the worst for foods served publicly. The biggest issue is the in-between times from refrigeration to your plate… that mayonnaise may have been sitting out of the cooler, with the lid off, from before the place even opened for business. Meats and vegetables are also suspect. All you want is a cool, fresh entree on a hot day – the last thing you need is a drive on the porcelain bus in the heat of a sunny afternoon.
