Food Safety Corner: Ford's bad hygeine

If you care about good hygeine and the image of food professionals as caring individuals who take food safety seriously, please take a look at and sign this petition. Ford Motor Co. is running a TV commercial which shows a chef using VERY bad hygeine, apparently in the name of humor.

"We, the undersigned, are appalled with your latest TV commercial showing a man washing his hands and a chef (in full uniform) coming out of a bathroom stall, seeing the sink was occupied, just wiped his hand on his chef coat, not washing his hands and then going out of the restroom."

While I haven't seen the commercial running in my area, I can't imagine a good reason to depict a chef doing such a thing, and giving the public the idea that chefs don't take their hygeine obligations seriously
