Handwashing and bathroom cleanliness important to restaurant goers
In a new study of close to 3,000 U.S. and Canadian adults and college students less than half of the respondents said they always make it a point to wash their hands before eating in a restaurant. Of greater concern to foodservice operators, more than 60 percent of U.S. and Canadian adults surveyed would not eat a restaurant if they noticed a restaurant employee use the restroom without washing his or her hands. Forty-nine percent would tell their friends not to eat there.
