Why 7-Eleven self-service hot dogs doesn’t work

7-Eleven has added self service hotdogs to their stores this although it may seem like a good idea it’s not I contest to that claim

Wednesday September 12,2018 I stopped at a 7-Eleven ordered 2 hotdogs which I suspected wasn’t ready but because I’m a glutton for punishment I ate them anyway.

Immediately after eating the 2 hotdogs I felt Ill so I rushed home instead of continuing my side job with postmates.

Later that day I went to the bank to deposit money unfortunately The nearest restaurant I was close to was across the street I exploded before I hit the seat.

Now as a person who’s worked in the food service industry I know the difference between a hot dog that’s cooked and one that’s only half way done this was one of those cases.

The temperature of the hot dogs are supposed to be checked with a food thermometer which looks like this

The temperature for a hotdog has to be between 140 and 165 for safe consumption. If this isn’t it could have tragic and dire consequences such as food poisoning or salmonella.

The symptoms of salmonella includes

  • Diarrhea
  • Fever
  • vomiting
  • dehydration
  • Fever

These are serious issues that should have been addressed before doing such a thing and that’s not the only issue with the stores that has to be addressed such as cross contamination in the condiment section like for example the utensils that are being used for the onions being shared in the tomato’s or thejalapeño mixed with the pickles each condiment needs it’s own utensils like this

Safety is important when it comes anything especially when it comes everything especially when it comes to food, remember these rules before serving

  • Wash your hands
  • never reuse the same glove
  • If you don’t have gloves use wax paper
  • Check the temperature before serving
  • Follow hot and cold holding tips
  • Don’t depend on hand sanitizer alone

A simple system everyone needs to follow to the T whenever you are distributing food remember what you put in for this week you take out the next dates are important and when in doubt throw it don’t serve food you wouldn’t eat yourself or give to family and friends
