I was watching some show on The Food Network, probably "The Best Of", and it mentioned chocolate fountains. The host asked the chocolatier what he did if someone couldn't resist and stuck their finger into the molten chocolate. The chocolatier said he immediately turned the unit off, poured the chocolate out, and charged whoever did it for 10 lbs of chocolate, as it was now unfit for commercial service, as that person just contaminated the chocolate.

I would have made darn sure that I got that 10 lbs of chocolate if I was getting charged for it! Kindof silly to put your finger in it, but don't waste the chocolate!!!
