HairBolus: Golden Corral made this comment on TheInquisitor article: "Golden Corral Video Shows Food Stored Next To Dumpster To Avoid Health Inspection" (via) Gawker:



This statement seems rather self-contradictory.
1) Why was the manager fired if nothing wrong was done?
2) If the food was being disposed of why wasn't it immediately dumped into the dumpsters rather than being left in a form that could be brought back into the restaurant?


HACCP protocol for kitchens suggests that food being thrown away should be bagged before being thrown away to prevent insect and rodent infestations.

Typically food to be thrown away is bagged BEFORE it's taken to the dumpster. In addition, quick racks which hold food shouldn't be used to take food to the dumpster, as it presents a significant risk of contamination if food is put on the cart again later.

While I can't say for certain that the food wasn't bagged and thrown away later, the manner in which the food is being stored before being thrown away is highly suspect.

I'm disgusted that Golden Corral is considered a restaurant.

I'm expecting the reaction to be:

1. Rogue manager, fired, all is well now
2. Kid was setting it up, not following procedure, disgruntled, etc.

For my amusement, I'm hoping they go with 2, then the kid trots out four co-workers to back him up.

I was in Texas for flight attendant school in 2001. On the weekends they gave vouchers for local restaurants, and one weekend it was the Golden Corral. My roommate and I got food poisoning. I made myself throw up when I started to feel bad. He didn't. I was sick all weekend. He was hospitalized for 6 days and almost died.

FU(K GOLDEN CORRAL. I swear to god, I'll go without food for days before I ever ate there again.

poot_rootbeer: A Shambling Mound: No properly-run restaurant anywhere will ever throw raw hamburger patties directly into a dumpster without bagging them.

Have you considered the possibility that this might not be a properly-run restaurant?


If they were not bagging trash/spoiled food, they would have a rat, mouse, bug, and stench problem very, VERY quickly.  That dumpster area looked to be very clean to me, which leads me to believe that they take care of their trash/disposal area pretty damn well.

The manager allowed someone with a video camera into the kitchen. Grounds fro termination in any great patriotic American company.

The dude would have blown the whistle if he had simply directed the inspectors to the food by the dumpster.  Instead he help facilitate the deception and made a self-promoting YouTube video.  Considering that the dude is attention-whoring to a high degree, I can't rule out that he was the person who put the food outside in the first place.

CoonAce: KellyX: So far I don't know what the truth is, for all we know that employee might of wheeled the shiat out to try to set things up.

Did you watch the video?  Did you see how much damn food that was?  You think that scrawny kid hauled all that shiat out there? ... covertly?

You've never wheeled a fully-loaded speed rack across a kitchen - let alone out the door & down the ramp, then.  I saw a packed speed rack, an entire prep table, a stack of sheet pans full of burger patties, and I lost count of hotel pans loaded down with product.

If anyone is even entertaining the idea that this kid did all this as a "set up," you are a damned fool and please don't have children.


Really? Because I saw one rack and plenty of empty slots where those burger trays could have been, and one other table which probably had wheels as well. Hell, two trips at most, probably have a door right near there anyway. Maybe 10 minutes tops to do all of that. I'm not saying it was a set up but that really isn't much work for one person to do. Hell include a buddy and that is quite easy. If he was trying to shop the video around that wouldn't surprise me. It might not be a set up but it would be quite easy to do.

Dokushin: Jesus Christ, you internet food snobs, it's not  that bad.


Actually I will agree with you. It's typical cafeteria food. Tiny fried shrimp with thick breading. Meats simmered and smothered in gravy so you can't tell the quality. Lots of cheap starch, little more expensive protein. What you get just about anywhere.

I avoid the place because the one time I went, the dining area was disgusting and the clientele were just scummy.

WhiskeySticks: 2 of the Chinese buffet places in town are owned by the same family.  My brother was in one of them doing some work on the plumbing.  While he was there working he overheard one of the owners tell an employee to drive a couple containers of meat that weren't up to par to the other location across town because the inspectors were there.

What won't pass inspection in one place was served in the other.

Gross.  Just gross.

It's stuff like this that makes me never want to eat in restaurants.


Even with all that being true, they are still likely more sanitary than your home kitchen

Endive Wombat: KellyX: That's one of the local Golden Corrals for me, had a friend that works as a manager at another restaurant in the area (not GC) freak out over this, but I think he's overreacting... So far I don't know what the truth is, for all we know that employee might of wheeled the shiat out to try to set things up.

Personally though, I'm surprised as much attention this video is getting that GC hasn't said anything publicly about it yet (that I've seen)... nothing on their FB or Twitter accounts, yet tons of people are reposting the video as comments on their FB page...

That's because their PR department and Executive team are all in a conference room right now trying to figure out how to mitigate the currently brewing shiatstorm.


Well, they better do something soon, right now one side is controlling the narrative and it's going viral.

randomjsa: The question is was that food actually brought back inside and served?

It probably was since, you know, they didn't just throw it away but...

I knew a guy that worked at the local GC. His words often were 'There's nothing wrong with the food, I'd eat it, but they don't seem to think labor laws apply to them'


He has a follow-up video where he is wheeling it back in to be stored again.

This is an isolate incident of a disgruntled staffer who, obviously without authorization, moved food product into the dumpster area.  Naturally this food was not served, the equipment was properly sanitized and the team member is not longer employed. Golden Corral is cooperating with authorities in the investigation of this matter.  Food safety and the safety of guests is the number on priority at Golden Corral.

//would say this video would cause me to stay away from Golden Corral, but I did that through common sense already.

Who would have thought that a restaurant serving bottomless troughs of food for $10 would be cutting corners on things like this
