Do not drink from Soda Dispensers!

Posted on: April 21, 2010


If you are at a fast food joint and grabbing a soda from the soda dispenser you may want to put it down after you read this.

A team of microbiologists  found that 48% of the sodas they tested from fast food soda fountains had coliform bacteria. Most of the identified bacteria showed resistance to one or more of the 11 antibiotics tested.” So nearly half of the dispensers are contaminated with bacteria.

So how do soda dispensers get contaminated?

It is ofcourse a hygiene issue, many people don’t wash their hands after leaving a washroom, or wipe their nose with their hands, touch door knobs, etc….and then use the dispenser!!

What’s more disheartening is that many of the bacteria strains were resistant to the antibiotics used to eradicate them, The biologists say that these thriving communities may contribute to “episodic gastric distress in the general population and could pose a more significant health risk to immunocompromised individuals.

SO are you gonna still drink from soda dispensers? 🙂
