It looks like there is a lot to hide underneath those Golden Arches, and McDonald’s wants it stay that way.
You might remember when child psychologist, Erin Carr-Jordan, 36, of Chandler, Ariz. recently researched fast food joints and their play spaces in eleven different states. The results of what she found set her on a mission. Soon after, Carr-Jordan started a campaign against germs at fast-food establishments around the country.
McDonald’s is obviously threatened.
On Monday, she received a hand-delivered letter, which informed her that she is “prohibited from setting foot in eight McDonald’s restaurants in Gilbert, Chandler and Phoenix.” Furthermore, she will be charged with criminal trespass if she does, reports USA Today:
“It doesn’t mean much to me personally. I’ve gotten positive responses from parents who said, ‘Hey, I’m not banned. Give me swabs.’ ”
Recently, Carr-Jordan found MRSA in a Gilbert, Ariz., restaurant’s PlayPlace and immediately told the manager along with the customers who had children. When she saw one child licking some equipment, it was the last straw, and she asked management to close down the play area.
“I can’t imagine knowing there was MRSA and not doing anything. I make no apologies for what I did.”
Carr-Jordan believes that this particular incident had a lot to do with the letter she received banning her from local McDonald’s restaurants.
Do you think Carr-Jordan had a right to inform customers about the MRSA? Should McDonald’s have the right to ban her? Or are they simply hiding?
