having worked in the food service industry, i can testify that this behavior is more common than you ever really wanted to know:
“Testifying in the trial of Scott B. Savino, who is charged with sickening a customer by spraying a sandwich with oven cleaner, Daniel P. Musson said he and Savino frequently laced sandwiches with cleaning products or spit on and “skated” on frozen meat patties that were thrown to the kitchen floor before being flame-broiled.”
of course, i would ever think of such a thing. combine this knowledge with the stuff my wife would divulge about her experiences while she was food inspector and you’ve got a recipe for indigestion.
