Playland Contaminated

share this story

Mother of four and developmental psychologist Erin Carr-Jordan has videotaped more than 50 playlands from fast food restaurants such as Burger King, Chuck E. Cheese's and McDonald's. Her results are not pretty. She sent samples from one location to a lab, which discovered 13 different pathogens that are able to cause disease in children-coliform, four different kinds of staph, likely meningitis and gonorrhea, and more.

Watch Carr-Jordan's tour of the contaminated areas below and learn more about the corporations' responses at the Los Angeles Times.

I guess I am lucky my 5 made it to 16-24 bc my kids loved ball crawls and chuckee cheeses and little ceasars playland.  I think they can find sickening germs on most public places truthfully.

We are from a small town and we don't have any play areas so it's very rare that my kids ever went to those things.  It doesn't surprise me though.  You'd think the health departments would regulate that they be disinfected regularly.  Public pools are also just as nasty.  We rarely visit those either.
