    Fecal bacterial is also found on nearly all toothbrushes. It’s not as dangerous as it sounds. Consider how many billions of servings from soda fountains, and how many people are getting sick? The story is interesting, but I’m not skipping my diet coke because of it.

    This is the most disgusting thing i have heard in a while. I am never going to one of those soda fountains. Why don’t they clean these fountains?

    The fact that many of the bacteria are resistant implies that people are trying to clean these fountains. Don’t be too hard on the employees of these places, if anyone’s to blame, it’s usually customers who don’t wash their hands thoroughly after using the restroom.

    It still might be a good idea for places to disinfect the nozzles with an alcohol solution once a month or something, cleaning the surfaces is just never enough.

    I am working with a company in Ireland called ellickson International and they have just developed a patented device that will sterilise soda fountains and soda dispense machines after every use. their tests have concluded that this system kills all bacteria found on soda nozzels it is the only process available world wide that willsolve this problem. The system is being launched at the bar and niteclub show in Vegas on the 8th of march.
