    One burger, hold the salt, it's for a cop.

    Oversalted burger leads to charges

    Sun Sep 9, 2:02 PM ET


    A McDonald's employee spent a night in jail and is facing criminal charges because a police officer's burger was too salty, so salty that he says it made him sick.
    Kendra Bull was arrested Friday, charged with misdemeanor reckless conduct and freed on $1,000 bail.
    Bull, 20, said she accidentally spilled salt on hamburger meat and told her supervisor and a co-worker, who "tried to thump the salt off."
    On her break, she ate a burger made with the salty meat. "It didn't make me sick," Bull told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
    But then Police Officer Wendell Adams got a burger made with the oversalted meat, and he returned a short time later and told the manager it made him sick.
    Bull admitted spilling salt on the meat, and Adams took her outside and questioned her, she said.
    "If it was too salty, why did (Adams) not take one bite and throw it away?" said Bull, who has worked at the restaurant for five months. She said she didn't know a police officer got one of the salty burgers because she couldn't see the drive-through window from her work area.
    Police said samples of the burger were sent to the state crime lab for tests.
    City public information officer George Louth said Bull was charged because she served the burger "without regards to the well-being of anyone who might consume it."

    That may be a wee bit severe.
    And Shepards we shall be,
    for thee, My Lord, for thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
    That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
    And teeming with souls will it ever be.
    In Nomine Patris, Et Filli, Et Spiritus Sancti.

    Point A - I'm curious what the crime lab will come back with.

    Point B - "Thump the salt off"? What, you don't have a sink? Wash it off, good as new. Better even.

    Point C - It could well be this story is legit. When you're one who suspects people are messing with your food the least bit of irregularity gets processed in the noodle as worst case.

    I wonder how many gallons of spit I ingested in my childhood because my loving, but too trusting, mother often sent my food back to get it just right. Judging by tales of food service since, I'm guessing three, maybe four.

    On the upside, I'm an efficient traveler now since gas station food doesn't scare me.

    That cop is a tool.

    If the burger was salty enough to make him sick, why did he eat the whole thing?

    I think he is looking for a lawsuit.

    One - Why would the officer eat it if it was too salty?

    Two - Those McDonalds employees are retards. We would never serve food like that to anyone and just throw it out at my McDonalds.

    Maybe he was really hungry and thought it would taste better with the next bite...

    I don't understand why she just didn't just throw it away and make a new one? Those patties can't cost what, 25 cents each at the most?

    No way - you'd just open the bun and pick off whatever the customer didn't want on it.


    The officer couldn't have eaten the whole thing if there was enough left to be sent to a crime lab.

    If the officer had high blood pressure and the burger had a lot of extra salt it's possible that he could have become sick. Or, if an employee used their hands to "thump" the salt off, there could have been contamination from that.
