    Ouch! But I recall reading somewhere, that even normally handled fast food lettuce had more germs on it than a raw beef patty. Plus it's got little nutritional value.

    Go spinach and arugula! ;)

    All restaurants are required to follow the same food handling procedures. Many states also require inspection reports to be publicly available. I don't know if "gourmet" burger even has a definition. Personally I would at least expect one to contain no pink slime, and the meat to come from grass fed and humanely raised animals.

    Probably would not notice the taste difference at a burger king anyway.

    Nice...pretty sad. It seems they wanted in on camera...guess losing a job was not a big deal to them.

    At least it was not needles or glass shards (a la DL) in the food...
