Dunkin’ Donuts Employee Serves Teens Donuts Covered In Bleach

I’ve heard of poisoning people with their favorite treats, but donuts? They’re the most sacred treats on earth. Poisoning them is some next level Game of Thrones type shit.

One Dunkin’ Donuts employee certainly didn’t think it was that big of a deal.

According to NBC Chicago, a group of teenagers went to the Oaktown, Virginia, location of Dunkin’ Donuts and were able to get their hands on the leftover donuts at the end of the day, all for free. Since it worked once, they figured they would try this trick again. Why not, right?

The kids came back several times, but were turned away every time. Eventually, the employee in question became tired of their requests and decided to give them free donuts again, only he told them to come back later, knowing that he would have time to do his dastardly deeds.

Before the kids came back, the employee allegedly sprayed all of the donuts he planned on giving them with a cleaning solution that contained bleach in it, clearly with the intention of hurting them, and possibly killing them.

The kids ate the donuts, some eating the entire donut and some just a bite, before realizing that something was wrong. The police were called shortly thereafter. Thankfully, none of the children sustained any serious injuries. A criminal investigation is currently being conducted.

Subway to Remove ‘Rubber’ Chemical From Bread, Make Subs Less Bouncy

IMG_2474RS

It’s no secret processed foods are filled with all sorts of chemical additives that probably have no business coming anywhere near your stomach, the majority of which barely manage to eke by on FDA safety standards — but still do, of course, because that’s the way the world works. The latest boogeyman buzzword? Azodicarbonamide, an odorless powder used by many American companies as a flour bleaching agent and dough conditioner, but also for foamed plastics like yoga mats and shoe soles.

Now, thanks to the efforts of blogger/food activist Vani Hari of Foodbabe.com, sandwich chain Subway has officially stated it is working toward a new formula which will remove the chemical from breads made for American stores. Earlier this week Hari started a petition calling for Subway to offer Americans the same azodicarbonamide-free bread as used in their European and Australian markets. As of 11:10 PST today, the petition gained 68,555 signatures.

Subway has since released a statement that it was already working on a new recipe before the petition started, and that it will be ready “soon,” reports the Associated Press.

Just one question Subway: will this change make your stores smell less?
