If you Don't do the cleaning - this can happen

KFC stores at Hurstville and Miranda fined $73,000 for poor hygiene | The Australian

KFC Villawood twist in sick girl legal case | NSW/ACT | News.com.au

I simply cannot understand why this goes on, just plain straight out laziness.

Sad buisness about that girl.
In NYC they now require restaurants to post the
last inspection report in their window.

I think that every restaurant is somehow in violation
of food safety laws - every day.

Mike: Displaying the last inspection report has been the law and custom for quite some time throughout California. Even that doesn't deter some miscreants from abusing the public trust. All you can do is use your good judgement, and hope. . . .

Well, here I am in a country that actually has no hygiene inspections that I am aware of, and we eat out quite often and in three years, I have never been sick, and DH has had food poisoning only once - from eating a hamburger at a VIPs restaurant in Vallarta (owned here by Walmart). Further, no one we know has been sick, either. Part of the issue is that the chickens and eggs are perhaps not already contaminated with salmonella and most of the food served in restaurants is locally grown, minimizing the number of handlers....and everywhere we go, people who work in restaurants (even the taco stands) seem scrupulously careful to handle the food safely and cleanly.

I hear you, Karen. I live in SoCal, and read about mass food poisoning all too frequently... mostly fast food places, and, sadly, schools. I used to drive down Baja to surf, and stop at every taqueria along the way...never a problem. I think it has to do with pressure on store managers to cut corners in order to save costs, and pressure by industry lobbyists to cut corners on processing inspections.

Since I rarely eat out I am not that concerned with the
cleanliness of kitchens.
There are surely some horror stories - but no-one I know
has ever been struck with food poisioning.
Karen - if you are reading - are you just South of
Puerto Vallarta i I spent some time in Barre De Navidad - South of you
some black volcanic sand beaches there.

Hi Mike - no, we are actually just north of Puerto Vallarta (12 km), still inside the Bay of Banderas. Our beaches are white...but I have friends who travel regularly to Barra de Navidad and love it there. The closest prime place for surfing here is Sayulita, which is just outside the bay, north of us.

The fact is that it has mostly to do with employees not washing their hands -- either correctly or at all. Most food-borne illness comes from human error, rather than tainted food. Altho even tho the chicken was "delivered fresh" it certainly possible that somewhere along the way it was not stored properly.

The case of the girl is truly tragic.

I, too, have eaten most "everything" in Mexico, and never gotten sick.
