How do they clean out ice freezers at fast food restaurants?

How do they clean out ice freezers at fast food restaurants?

Not enough: Interesting question. While it might be state specific, health departments don't test ice for bacteria and fungus, and they only do a visual inspection. The requirement to pass is the ice machines must be maintained enough to be clean at sight and touch. Freezing does not necessarily kill organisms, and dangerous bacteria and fungi have been found in ice from restaurants. Bagged ice may be safer. ...Read more

More investigation: If it is only red meat that causes the symptoms then focus on other sources of protein like chicken, pork, turkey and fish. That much weight loss without change in diet suggests some type of problem. Some medications like stimulants can suppress appetite and conditions like anxiety can also decrease appetite.

Why do I get sick from red meat? I stopped eating red meat about a year and a half ago. Just a personal choice. It started to make me sick to smell, see, or think about it so I just stopped. I eat it sometimes in little bits if its in a salad or a pizza b

This: This is very interesting. I don't have the answers for you, but here are some thoughts. You could be reacting to hormones and antibiotics that are fed to cattle. Maybe you are not able to handle the high fat content of the red meat. You could have a red meat food intollerance.
You could be have a strong pyschological reaction to ingesting red meat. The next thought is more theoretical. Maybe your body is not making as many of the enzymes required to break down red meats, because it didn't need to for so long. It will be interesting to see what ideas other doctors who answer this question have. ...Read more
