Teen admits to contaminating three Whoppers

The Associated Press 10/4/00 12:03 PM

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) -- A former Burger King employee has admitted to using cleaning solvent and spit to contaminate Whopper sandwiches that sickened a sheriff's deputy along the New York State Thruway.

Daniel Musson, 18, pleaded guilty to a felony charge of first-degree tampering with a consumer product before Monroe County Court Judge Charles Maloy.

Musson admitted Tuesday that he sprayed oven cleaner on two Whoppers before Scott B. Savino broiled them. He said he left the cooking area for several minutes, then asked Savino, 20, whether the sandwiches had been served. Savino laughed Musson said.

He said he saw Janet M. LaDuca, 18, enter a restroom with a Whopper. After her return, she said she had urinated on it, Musson said.

Monroe County Assistant District Attorney James Wolford said Musson, who will be sentenced Nov. 29, will be expected to testify against LaDuca and Savino. The suspects were employees at the Scottsville service area 12 miles southwest of Rochester. Police said they contaminated food over eight months ending in late April.

The three were fired in early May after another employee told a manager of food-tampering and the deputy was sickened by contaminated food he ate April 30.

The deputy suffered from diarrhea, nausea and acid reflux, in which stomach acid comes up into the esophagus. He was out of work several days but has recovered, said Monroe County Sheriff's spokesman Jim Pringle.

In exchange for the plea and Musson's promise not to appeal, Maloy said he would sentence Musson to no more than one to three years in prison and no less than six months in jail and five years' probation. He could have faced up to four years in prison upon conviction of the Class E felony.

The judge also said he would consider granting Musson youthful offender status, which would seal his criminal record.

Anyone got any favorite 'what i did in a fast/food/restaurant while working' story?

I'll plead the 5th for now......

xoxo,sumer who ALWAYS has a story to tell...tee hee

ewww is right! Geez, I'm getting more and more paranoid about eating out. Granted McDonald's isn't the Ritz, but still, who knows for sure if employees wash their hands after using the bathroom even in fancy restaurants.

"The judge also said he would consider granting Musson youthful offender status, which would seal his criminal record."

I had no idea judges had so much leeway when it comes to deciding if a person will be judged as juvenile or adult. An 18 year old is legally an adult in NY, no?

This is mild in comparison to some of the feats of food tampering I have been witness to. After working in the food business on and off for many years I have been witness to some unbelievable things. For example, at a major grocery, we have processed cancerous meat into hamburger. After the expiration date we have recycled expired meat into ground beef, chicken, turkey etc.. Expired food products were regularly used in the deli section of the store to produce the plate lunches and other daily specials that we sold to our customers.

Employees were found to do strange things to the orders of various police and education authorities. One example , on a take out order for a cook at home pizza, a group of three students were discovered to have included fecal matter, ear wax, toe cheese, nose buggers, spit, urine in the tomato sauce, and were said to have gargled the other vegatable toppings before placing them on the pizza with an extra generous topping of cheese and sauce to mask their dirty deads.In addition, the students were then said to have also included every possible piece of filthy bodily waste they could find to include in the pizza. Skin from atheletes feet, eye , ear and nose buggers, as well as the scrapping from an accumulated belly button cleaning after five years of yuk build up.

In addition, there are numerous instances of sick cooks spitting on the food during preparation. Dropping the food intentionally in the most filthy location and cooking to serve to an unliked customer. I have worked in many food establishments over the year as a youth , and I have a tendancy to not want to eat at these places if i can avoid it. You also have to remember that these are mostly kids getting paid a tad over mini wage. Even if discovered and fired these kids could have a job the next day at another ffood restaurant. I am not underestimating the amount of food tampering out there. It happens every day, in every restaurant, and is the only way for the poor to revenge the rich on a daily basis.

Yo, tyfoid jeana,

I have heard similar stories and have seen many things that you have discribed. Thing is , it is much more prevalent than you describe. In a fast food joint where I worked we did these things for fun, or for kicks. If a customer was rude we would have to 96 em. So if an asshole came in and started act en up. we would place the order and say 96 em. These code words meant to use shit and other crappy food and to make sure the presentation was extra neat in appearance.So as not to make the customer notice the other violations of their food rights that had just been taken from them.As you mentioned we were just a bunch of poor kids working to pay our own way. And the last thing we needed was some rich prick kid or adult trying to put us down for working at a job that got us by. Please remember those that work at fast food place are trying to make a living like everyone else. If you f*ck with us we kick back. The silent terror is that you ate it and never knew. That AIDS boy spit in your food and bleed on your plate.

I have heard it all now. I will eat at home.

-- can't be true (oh no @ quit it.com), October 04, 2000.

Typhoid and Spitting Image are probably one and the same; one of those guys that love spreading Urban Legends on the internet like the one where medschool students wake up in their bathtub with their kidney's ripped out suposedly from organ collectors to fill organ transplant orders or some such idiotic story (comes in different flavors). It scares the bedevil out of those of us ignorant on the subject.

So far I haven't been sick eating out and I do a lot, but I'm careful where I eat.

-- (smarty@wannabe.one), October 04, 2000.

This is disgusting. Only afew years ago, a new building was being built next door to mine and we used to frequent the taco wagons that served the construction crews. I remember the mex's would laugh when we ordered the special's,called different things ever so often,later learned that they used semi- road kill,usually harvested from the animal shelters,mostly cats...thats where I developed my taste for cat meat tacos and later learned to cook them in many different ways using a variety of spices and cooking methods

-- meat be meat (semi-road kill cats @int.that bad), October 04, 2000.


This is a true story. Granted eating someones shit after fully cooking will not make you sick. It probably adds and animalistic flavor and aroma that will leave the person wodering how they were able to get such a wonderfull food experience. Surely, if this type of tampering made people sick they would have been discovered by now. To tell the truth, I have never eated one of these bodily products, but I can imagine that the consumer experience a unique flavor that they have yet to experience. Ever wonder why Mexican restaurants smell like underarm. Hey its part of the flavoring. Makes such a nice spice and , oh yes, its free.

-- its true (typhiodjeana@eatme.dot.com), October 04, 2000.

Now I have to comment on this cat thing. It taste like chicken. I once ate a chinese retaurant and ordered the chiken dish . They served chinken wings in a sweet and sour sauce. The problem was I guess they forgot to cut off the ankle as this chiken had a lower leg that really looked like a cat's foot rather than a chiken.

ROFL Meat and Typhoid!!

Well like they say, if it's not gonna kill ya, it's gotta be good for ya.

-- (smarty@wannabe.one), October 04, 2000.

Oh smarty its been fun. Really is nice that you think this is some Urban legend. I am flattered. However, as you know truth can be stranger than fiction and as they say it all tastes like chicken.

-- jeana (typoid@mary.com), October 04, 2000.

I work at Burger King. I once went into the restroom with a whopper, ate the patty and replaced it with my turd. Typhoid Jeana was the next person waiting in line for a Whopper. He ate it and said it was the best one he's ever had.

That dumb ass. As you can imagine , oven cleaner has a very strong flavour. The idiot deserves to be in jail for using such a method . My stars. What has this world come to. Shit has a very nice aroma after a thourogh cooking. And does not have a chemical flavour. Now Now food tampering is not for the dumb.

If you can slip a tablet into someone's coffee ...it avoids an awefull lot of mess. one..two...three.. its as easy as abc .....all our greatest tamperers were industrious.. at least the one that we all know by name. Jack in the box had shit with e coli mixed in with the beef. Now this why they say that you should order well done.

-- chemicals have taste (idiot@cleaning fluid.com), October 04, 2000.

Not my fault. At a press conference a tearful Hunter disputed his positive tests for food tampering. After many months of investigative despoting, Clinton appointed Jesse Lacksomething has determined that Hunter has been charged negligently with poscecion of Aue de lue' de essence of le stank.

^^^^okay, so I 'asked' right? The above IMHO was uncalled for. You are talking about potential spreading of a deadly virus. Do you know you can obtain jail-time for that? For God's sake, please tell me what the HELL is so funny about the above statement?

I one time put alot of ketchup on a policeofficers whopper because he wanted extra. That was my story. Worse than that was when a whopper hit the floor @ closing time, and they handed the damn thing thru the window anyhow.

I for one would consider KILLING someone IF they pissed or spit in my food. For real. How is that for scarey.?

Most of you know how I feel regarding aids/hiv related tacky uncompassionate comments.

Rant off.
