Erin Carr Jordan is a child development specialist on a mission. She has cited the "filthy conditions" at restaurant playgrounds, including McDonald's and Burger King. Jordan claims that much of the fecal matter and strains of staph and bacteria are enough to cause meningitis and gonorrhea in the children playing in them.
Jordan found her evidence in a set of lab tests commissioned by Arizona State University, where she is a Developmental Psychology Professor. Jordan is calling for mandatory laws on the degree of cleanliness that must exist at restaurant playgrounds.
McDonald's hasn't commented on what Jordan has been saying. Burger King has issued a statement claiming that its cleaning standards consist of "procedures for daily, weekly and monthly cleaning of playground equipment, pads and foams. On a quarterly basis, restaurant playgrounds are also required to be cleaned by a professional cleaning service."
Jordan began her crusade when her 3-year old asked to urinate on the slide. When taking him to the bathroom, she noticed a high degree of filth. Her complaints to managers went nowhere, so she then swabbed some samples and found 13 disease-causing pathogens and "layers and layers and layers and layers of just disgustingness.”
