Domino's Worker 'Caught In The Act' After Customer Snaps Pic Of Them Buying Asda Wedges
A Domino's worker has been caught buying cheap wedges from Asda and people are not happy.
Twitter user Sinead Sarah uploaded the following image with the caption: 'Thank you @dominos - next time I spend £3.99 on a tiny portion of potato wedges I'll remember there from Asda!! [sic]'
The bags of wedges are just £1 each, and you only get about 20 wedges so the mark up is well over 250%. Damn, Dominos!
The Tweet's nearly on 20k likes already and people just can't handle the betrayal.
A spokeswoman for Domino's Pizza told The Sun: "With a big sporting weekend, very occasionally our stores are in an unfortunate position where some products may run out.
"We do not advocate this as a solution and are investigating. We have rigorous food standards where our franchisees buy all food from our approved suppliers to help maintain the high standards customers rightly expect."
To be completely fair, I used to work in a restaurant and when we ran out of stuff people would often nip to the supermarket. It's just one of those things.
How Long After Buying Takeaway Pizza Can You Safely Eat It?
Pizza is possibly the best food ever. I know everyone says it all the time, but we're at a point where if you press your phone in the right place - someone will deliver a pizza to your door.
It's hot, it's cheesy, it's personalisable, you can even get that bad boy with a stuffed crust. Mate, it's the king of foods.
However, when you get a takeaway, it's common to eat most of it and then leave some for the next day. Everyone does this. But, how safe is it to eat it?!
I've seen people eat pizza that's been left out for days. Gross, I know. I'm one of those kinds of people who will wrap it up in tin foil and put it in the fridge. Deal with it.
Well, I spoke to the Food Standards Agency to find out exactly what is safe and what isn't.
A spokesperson said: "If you choose to keep hot takeaway pizza as leftovers, then you should make sure it's cooled down at room temperature within 2 hours.
"Takeaway leftovers should be stored, covered and kept in a fridge for up to two days. An exception to this is rice based dished which should only be kept for one day.
"You can also freeze takeaway food for up to three months but its quality is likely to diminish over time. If takeaway food is frozen, the food should be fully reheated within 24 hours of it being fully defrosted.
"Always defrost the food in the fridge. Before eating, also make sure the leftover food is reheated thoroughly by reaching a core temperature of 70˚C for 2 minutes or equivalent."
Wait a minute - you can freeze takeaway? For up to three months?! This is amazing information. Especially for the students among you who tend to spend student loans within days and then regret it a few months down the line.
Also, the fact you shouldn't eat pizza that's been left out over two hours is concerning. But hey, now you know.
