ICEHOUSTON, TX – There are a couple kinds of ice we should all stay away from. The kind that’s made in a garage, the yellow kind and apparently the kind of ice that’s served in fast-food restaurants.

A study of Britain’s most popular fast food chains, including McDonald’s, Burger King, KFC and Starbucks had their ice tested for bacteria and the results make super-sizing a stomach turning suggestion. The ice contained more bacteria than what’s found in toilet water.

Experts say it’s most likely because toilets are cleaned regularly, while ice machines generally are not, but that doesn’t make it any less disgusting!
