Close the stores before people die.
That's my prediction. The employees are overworked, underpaid, and tired of looking at the lazy soft entitled customers.
This is a clearly national problem, yet they refuse to shut the stores. They have no respect or concern for the customers right to safe food. This negligent behavior will cause many lawsuits, especially if deaths occur.
Also, could it be on the door handles, countertops, etc.?
Is there a chance this is intentional, by disgruntled employees purposely infecting the food at the source?
How can you ever know the food is safe again?
How long has this been going on?
