"My hypothesis was that the fast food restaurants’ ice would contain more bacteria that the fast food restaurants’ toilet water."She was right.
Jasmine tested ice from the self-serve dispensers inside 5 fast food restaurants, as well as ice from drinks served at the drive through. She also collected samples from those restaurants' toilet bowls.
She found that the ice that came from the self-serve machines had more bacteria than the toilet water at 4 of the 5 restaurants. 3 of the 5 cups of ice from the drive-through windows had more bacteria than the toilet water.
When ask if the project will change her fast food ordering habits, Jasmine said, "After this, I definitely don't get ice." [Tampa Bay News]
