Sounds like they're obviously trying to hide something!

I just saw her on the daytime Anderson Cooper show. She is trying to expose the contamination at play areas and how filthy they are.

In one swab sample they found meningitis, gonorrhea, e.coli, etc.... Just insane the amount of horribly dangerous bacteria and pathogens they found.

I am thankful that she is standing up for the right's of children to have safety in an area specifically made for them and enticing to them.

I always had a good feeling about the Chic-Fil-A chain and she gave them a good deal of credit for having sanitization protocols in place and standards which must be adhered to. I still don't let my kids go in them though.

Doesn't surprise me that much that the play areas are that nasty. I remember even as a kid I felt nasty and dirty after playing on them, especially in the balls!

I'm surprised that McD would go so far as to ban her from the restaurants. That is practically inviting media attention. Is it even legal to ban somebody from a public place?

Most restaurants have a policy of being able to refuse service. It was a bone of contention when breastfeeding in public got more accepted in general. Some managers of establishments were uncomfortable with breastfeeding mothers even when they were fully covered and tried to ban it. Also there was the manager of the Burger King who made a mother leave because her 8 month old daughter didn't have shoes on. It is just ridiculous then and this is horrifying because it makes me not want to eat at any McDonalds at all (which we don't do that often anyway). We live in Tucson so I will make sure to make a point of boycotting those Phoenix McDonalds when we go up there(not that often but still.)
