‘Disgusting’: Golden Corral employee’s undercover video goes viral
A Golden Corral employee in Port Orange, Fla., was so disgusted by his company’s actions prior to health inspections that he decided to expose the franchise’s practices to the world via YouTube.
The 22-year-old filmed piles of raw, uncovered meat and casseroles next to filthy garbage that would soon be served to hundreds of customers during their dinner rush.
“This is what my company likes to do to get ready for inspection. They like to put their food by the dumpster,” the employee says in the self-shot video. “I’m an employee here, been working here for a long time, and I don’t feel that this right… To me, this is disgusting.”
“I’m scared of my employment. I don’t know who to tell but I don’t want to cook this food,” he said in a second video. “I don’t feel safe with it. My management is gonna’ wheel it back into the coolers after the inspection, like nothing happened.”
Metro Corral Partners responded in a statement to Consumerist:
“A video was recently posted showing an incident of improper food handling at our Port Orange, Florida location. None of these items were served to a single customer. All were destroyed within the hour at the direction of management… The manager involved in the improper storage was terminated for failing to follow approved food handling procedures.”
