Relax..... You can Trust Tim Hortons

It seems that every time I log on to facebook these days I see more and more people who "Like"this link: You will NEVER drink another TIM HORTONS COFFEE after seeing this!.

Everyone needs to chill out! You can walk into any restaurant and find unsanitary issues if you are looking for them. I worked in the restaurant business for 22 years and during that time we tried our best to keep things sanitary and safe for our customers, but things happen. You do your best to minimize those mistakes and train your employees to keep your high standards of sanitation.

The fact of the matter is that unsanitary conditions are everywhere, if you are looking for them, you will find them. People are on high alert at restaurants because of heightened focus on food safety in the media today and bloggers who write entries that people take as fact. (Such is the case here). Every restaurant has to go through health inspections at least once a year. Many restaurants conduct there own inspections (which are usually tougher than the state or local inspections).

The next time you "like" stories like these please take a look at where you work, where you live . Even though we all try to keep things clean and safe, it is impossible to do it 100% of the time. Illness from unsanitary conditions are rare, this is because our body's immune system can usually fight these things.

Also on a side note....Tim Horton's does not put MSG or Nicotine in their coffee..look it up.
