Were these contest foods washed. Baskets put on table from the floor where food was to be prepared. I have quit eating out. Reply July 15, 2019 at 9:36 am ACK! Talking over the food! When one talks one spits out tiny droplets. Immune System on the alert😲☻ Reply July 16, 2019 at 1:03 am I saw a raw chicken cut up for fried fingers , then a cooked breast cut on the same board for a taco salad, He actually scraped the cooked breast on the salad from the board. When I asked him why he did that he did not even know he did it, That was sad Reply July 18, 2019 at 4:13 am Isn't sealed milk okay at any temperature?

But I love your Canadian accent!!!!!!Could listen to it all the time, even about dodgy food places 🙂 Reply July 19, 2019 at 3:15 pm After re watching this I've changed my mind. They're not over exaggerating at all. Ebola would be terrible Reply July 19, 2019 at 6:23 pm Stop eating out. I know it tastes really good, but your health more important. Reply July 20, 2019 at 12:03 am Gordon Ramsey: It’s rawwww Reply July 20, 2019 at 5:30 am A stickler in the kitchen…but turns off faucet with his hand. That handle is meant for elbows. Reply July 20, 2019 at 10:03 am No matter if your kitchen clean or not if your not wash hand is same your eat dirty Reply July 20, 2019 at 2:59 pm the kfc by my house had workers preparing mashed potatoes on a tray on a garbage can. they got shut down for 2 weeks Reply July 21, 2019 at 12:15 am 22:00 Dude. Safe cooking temp for chicken is ~85 degrees C Reply July 21, 2019 at 4:35 pm A… "Chef" who washes his hands not even till the wrists and leaves his bacteria covered watch on while doing it? He's contaminating every plate he touches, for sure. Reply July 23, 2019 at 9:20 pm The inspector was very confused. He said between 5 degree celsius to 59 degree celsius (that is Fahrenheit!) So I think he meant between 5 degree celsius to 14.5 degree celsius. I guess that he must be tired and made that mistake. IF IT IS 59 degree celsius, YOU WON'T WANT TO EAT that sandwiches because it will be 148 degree Fahrenheit and succumbed with bacteria!!! DO some math here please! Reply July 25, 2019 at 8:39 am I was in a Subway and my server started to put onions on a sandwich. I said not to put onions on, and she took the onions off and put them back after they had been on meat in the sandwich, which is cross contamination. I emailed Subway about it, and they immediately got back to me about it. If you want to know about cleanliness, apps such as Zomato can help. I have the most reviews of any Zomato member in the Fraser Valley, and they check to see if you are accurate. Reply July 25, 2019 at 2:41 pm Now i know why i dont feel well when ever i go to any restaurant or fast food joint Reply July 25, 2019 at 11:17 pm THIS IS 2019 AND I HAVEN'T EATEN OUT IN OVER 15 YEARS, I LIVE IN L.A. THEY HIRE ANYONE WALKING DOWN THE STREET Reply July 26, 2019 at 2:57 pm I don't think I'll be going out to eat anytime soon.Like forever.Thanks so much for the info, it is very very valuable. Reply July 27, 2019 at 5:23 am If this is happening in Canada, in my country probably is 9/10 probably are with great violation. And my paremts still try to make me enjoy a meal with them, and almost always kick me back at the evening Reply July 27, 2019 at 8:11 pm Chef Mooking's, you souldn't cook with the watch on and, the ring sould be covered!!! You sould know better. Busted!!!! Reply July 27, 2019 at 8:55 pm i never eat in restaurants. i have worked in hotels like the Ritz Carlton in Toronto and it is filthy. Reply July 27, 2019 at 9:12 pm Moxies will make you sick for sure. Reply July 28, 2019 at 11:53 am That's it, I'm done eating out Reply July 28, 2019 at 3:08 pm … that 'Chef' made gray goop on a plate sprinkled with basil yet displayed it like it look appetizing. It did not. Reply July 28, 2019 at 3:48 pm Thats scary to see Reply July 29, 2019 at 9:58 am I have been in most Vancouver Restaurants and, Cardero's is by far the best one in my opnion! At Cardero's you can everything that is happening in the kitchen👍Dom Francesco on Burrard has the most disgusting kitchen that I ever seen, also rats walking in the restaurant. Reply July 29, 2019 at 10:44 am Handling Food and Money👎 Reply July 29, 2019 at 11:06 am All that time to make Mucho Pancakes LOL Reply July 29, 2019 at 12:06 pm Moxies should change the name to "The Pigs". Reply July 30, 2019 at 12:22 am Do not send food back? you are not getting back what you want Reply August 1, 2019 at 2:19 am Canada is so naive and innocent Reply August 1, 2019 at 2:40 am Kitchen work is the most gruelling job I've done and I used to deliver newspapers in -20 c. Reply August 1, 2019 at 7:04 pm I’m going Wendy tomortow Reply August 2, 2019 at 1:29 am I make my own food, but in every restaurant , they should wear gloves. Hairy sweaty hands making your pizza, or holding the bun too long while making your burger ha ha.. no thank you Reply August 2, 2019 at 3:11 pm Moxies is the most disgusting canadain chain restaurant bar none. We ate there for the first time a few months ago and the food was so bad and old we sent everything back and left. Reply August 3, 2019 at 6:08 am I rarely buy restaurant food for this reason… Food that's left to go rotten and made to look and taste edible. Home-cooking is best! Reply August 4, 2019 at 3:09 am Mac Donald’s burgers are always room temperature am I the only one that thinks that mc Donald’s serves there burgers cold Reply August 4, 2019 at 3:31 am 11:22 18:00 Reply August 4, 2019 at 5:55 am I got violently sick early Christmas morning after I was done wrapping my grandbabies presents, had knee surgery schedule for the 26 and have to cancel. I had eaten a sausage and muffin and half of a hash brown which I usually will not eat the hash browns. I vomited violently within 45 minutes after eating. I had gone to 24 hour fast food restaurants Americans favorite, to this day I don't like eating out. No one cares anymore especially about hand washing. Reply August 4, 2019 at 6:00 pm nobody touching the asian guy talking about "an eye opener"? Reply August 5, 2019 at 10:09 pm This report was all over the place. Not put together well, at all. Lots of good information, though. Reply August 6, 2019 at 10:00 am We need a kitchen nightmares canada edition Reply August 8, 2019 at 5:00 am Since when is KFC known for its herbs and spices? Is Canadian KFC higher quality that in the US? What other secrets are our brothers and sisters in the great white north keeping from us? Reply August 9, 2019 at 4:28 am Taking the temp 10 or 15 minutes after getting his food in his car. Failed ! Reply August 9, 2019 at 9:36 am Test kitchen …. her long hair hanging over the food – a NO NO ! Reply August 12, 2019 at 4:54 pm Marketplace is a necessary program, so consumers can know what's right and what's wrong! Reply August 13, 2019 at 4:51 pm im american. i luv watchin dis Reply August 14, 2019 at 1:02 am Health inspectors are greasy themselves they take kickbacks Reply August 15, 2019 at 10:32 am binging this show lately and the only thing i dont care for is that "try to talk to a CEO part" you always get the same thing …walking/driving away without a word or "you need to leave" we all know why this stuff happens… money corrupts and noone is innocent of that, myself included Reply August 17, 2019 at 4:19 am I work for computer repair. When your hands are wet putting those gloves on is really hard when they are wet. Reply August 17, 2019 at 2:35 pm The woman and guy who were cooking cashew chicken at the studio, she needs to have her long dark hair tiedback. Who needs to find a long black hair in their food because she is flipping her hair back all the time.Gross. Also no long sleeves while cooking. Skin is easier to keep clean that fabric. Reply August 17, 2019 at 6:51 pm This is why I never eat at restaurants. Super expensive and then you get sick. Fast food is ten times safer which is funny. Reply August 19, 2019 at 7:18 am Need some hand sanitizer Reply August 19, 2019 at 7:31 am Use the clean as u go Reply August 19, 2019 at 8:58 pm Gordon Ramsay: Ha first time? Reply August 20, 2019 at 10:49 am " You were washing glasses by hand" really omg however shall we cope with such filth. Reply August 20, 2019 at 3:11 pm I saw a young chinese waitress clipping her fingernails on the restaurant floor…when she had tables up front. I could hear the loud "SNIP" metalic click of the fingernail clippers! I looked at her in horror. At least she could have picked up the nail clippings ? ! This was in MIAMI LAKES FLORIDA chinese restaurant Reply August 21, 2019 at 5:36 am never been to a moxies, after this never will… Reply August 21, 2019 at 7:36 am If your sick and your in a restaurant kitchen you are required to show up to work I HAVE A serv safe certificate and you Do not work around found 1- Do dishes but can't put them away 2- Take out trash 3-mop up the floor Reply August 21, 2019 at 10:29 am Funny they temp it in the car since food doesn't stay cold or hot while it sits in your car or when you hold the milk your hands warm it up Reply August 22, 2019 at 5:41 am I always wash my hands before I use the restroom…I don't want germs on my butt. Reply August 22, 2019 at 7:46 am honestly the big violations, yeah, pretty bad. but stuff like touching your hair, face, ect. small stuff, doesn't bother me. We're humans, we've evolved to withstand viruses and bacteria. I am sooo far from a germaphobe and have always shared food and drinks with friends and just not cared. Now i never get sick, never get infections, never have any immune issues. yeah some stuff is gross but ehhhh. as long as it tastes good haha Reply August 23, 2019 at 5:21 am I'm 31, live in Toronto and never got sick eating out. Thank God. Reply August 23, 2019 at 9:09 am This is why I don't eat out. One restaurant gal here. Reply August 23, 2019 at 5:59 pm That guy would have a blast in Boston. Reply August 23, 2019 at 6:05 pm I was in Outback steakhouse in the Orlando airport, I took one bite of my delicious filet and a mouse ran over my foot, I was wearing flip flops! They only comped my meal, no way I was going to eat it after that, I had only 1 bite. The mouse also ran over the feet of a woman at the next table. I figured if you can have a mouse running over the diners feet, there must be a boatload of more mice in there. Reply August 23, 2019 at 6:13 pm Should never do a class action lawsuit, attorneys walk off with most of what is awarded. Reply August 24, 2019 at 11:00 am The food handlers are the most frightening thing. Many restaurant workers are careless nasty people that do not need to be in food service. They have poor sanitation practices as well. They do a poor job at wiping down surfaces, cleaning glassware, silverware, and dining room tables and chairs. Beware of eating out. Reply August 25, 2019 at 3:57 am Say "contaminating" one more time, i dare you! Reply August 25, 2019 at 12:22 pm They have a chinese inspecting Canadian restaurant????? Funny how they didn't inspect Montreal, the Canadian city with the most and best restaurant in the country! Reply August 25, 2019 at 6:49 pm My gramps Own a restaurant and the golden rule is wash hands U break it ur fired right on the spot no warnings Reply August 26, 2019 at 4:36 am WHERE IS THE UPDATE TO THIS REPORT?? FIVE YEARS AGO, AND NO UPDATE; I SMELL A 'RAT. Reply August 26, 2019 at 6:41 am i don't like mcdonalds but time and other sources of heat change the temperature. Reply August 26, 2019 at 10:30 am 25:05 you have a lot more to worry about temperature in a McDonald's burger. Such as the fact that there is hardly any meat in a patty or the chemicals added to it…. Google 20 years old burger Reply August 26, 2019 at 4:14 pm Boston Pizza in Canada……why does that make me laugh?? Lol Reply August 27, 2019 at 1:52 am No hiring in Denmark without a hygiene course. It's mandatory. Reply August 27, 2019 at 3:05 am DISGUISING WHITE PPL NEVER WASH THEIR HANDS,,,UGH! Reply August 27, 2019 at 3:50 am UGH! MOO SHOE NASTY…..WTF Reply August 27, 2019 at 11:34 am Can you clean your hands well with cold water?? Reply August 27, 2019 at 1:50 pm I worked in commercial and business sales. So I'd have to look at the whole building including commercial kitchens. I found a hair on my plate and I just pulled it off and enjoyed a lovely meal. I.l draw the line at a plaster and a mouse though!!!!Some of the kitchens I'd seen, places where I'd eaten, but wouldn't eat again. Indian restaurants, kebab houses were without fail the worst places. Reply August 27, 2019 at 4:11 pm I have worked at both mom and pop and chain restaurants and I never have seen a kitchen as dirty as the first restaurant in this report. Reply August 27, 2019 at 9:22 pm does canada not have food handler cards? in america you have to provide proof of taking a food handlers class. Reply August 28, 2019 at 9:38 pm If it was published how disgusting most restaurants are, people would immediately stop eating out and the whole industry would collapse. Reply August 29, 2019 at 5:36 am Celebrity Chef …AkA 🤡 Reply August 31, 2019 at 4:49 am I'm going to be honest for 11 dollars an hour your asking for to much. Your asking unexperienced teens to be perfect for minimum wage. Raise the pay and maybe they'll feel a bit more serious about their job. I don't agree with any of this but my point here is both sides are at fault. This is why I eat home cooked meals. Reply August 31, 2019 at 5:38 am Celebrity chef talking about food safety. Wears a watch while prepping foods 😂 Reply August 31, 2019 at 7:43 am Don't buy cakes or pastries where you gotta use a tong or select any, I see people play with the cakes and croissants before they select the one they want Reply August 31, 2019 at 7:52 am Where is our BRIT for gordan Ramsey….. Reply August 31, 2019 at 7:59 am McDonald's burgers always cold asf Reply August 31, 2019 at 4:04 pm From Vancouver, went to White Spot (a Canadian restaurant) and ordered a legendary burger to go. The food not only took 20 minutes to cook when I had already ordered it 50 minutes prior online, but when I went to eat the burger, there was an old burnt shrimp tail in the middle of the burger paddy. It was hard to identify because it looked like old cookie sheet crumpled up. Turns out that it was in fact a shrimp tail that was brown and black sitting in the sauce on top of the meat. I wrote to them explaining what had happened since I wasn't eating there in the restaurant… and they offered me a 20 dollar gift card to go and eat there again. I didn't want a gift card to eat THERE again…. just give me my damn money back. Reply August 31, 2019 at 5:15 pm Anybody bothered by how they took the temperature of the food? They bought the burger and measured the temperature outside in the car. Of course the burger's gonna cool down by then, especially since they put cold lettuce and tomatoes on it as well! Reply August 31, 2019 at 7:36 pm It's good that they focused so much on hand washing, it's a huge huge huge cause for people getting sick. Hep A, staph, norovirus, tons of stuff. So much food poisoning comes from people not washing their hands or thinking gloves are the the solution to everything. Reply September 1, 2019 at 10:36 am As a professional chef I find this video very very misleading. So much wrong information I don't even know where to begin. I guess it makes for good TV though? Reply September 1, 2019 at 11:10 pm Alberta is the worst province. I've had food poisoning 3 times, all violent. It's kind of funny you list KFC as being one of the cleanest because I got poisoned really bad by them in Edmonton. To be fair, it was a long time ago. Reply September 2, 2019 at 1:08 am I have A hard time believing people need to be TOLD to wash their hands after they cleaned the bathrooms and before the go back to touching food. Maybe we as customers should spit on our money 😂 Reply September 2, 2019 at 2:03 am This is disgusting. How can so many people walk around a restaurant and not care how filthy and nasty things are? Seriously if you work in a place like this you are horrible.
