Most of the time, the 5-Second Rule doesn’t fly in restaurants and eateries.
Except apparently this one time at a Dunkin’ Donuts where a MANAGER dropped a batch of donuts and thought “Nah, it’s aaaalll goooood.”
That said, Dunkin’ Donuts did respond:
We are aware of the video and we take matters like this very seriously. The actions seen in the video at a franchised Dunkin’ Donuts restaurant are absolutely inconsistent with our strict food safety standards and requirements.
According to the franchisee, upon hearing of this incident in November 2015, he investigated the matter and met with the employee to discuss the fact that the donuts should have been immediately disposed of in keeping with our standards.
