REALLY? REALLY MICHELLE? should i bring my OWN serving utensils or is someone going to stand there with new ones or sanitize between the last customer and me? and don't even pretend that surfaces are safe!!!! why is every grocery store sanitizing the baskets and buggies, door handles, you name it!!!!! this is a stupid press release especially from dr wrecks department! you have no idea what you are doing, just sending mixed messages to please whose salad bar or buffet it will help, cronyism the likely decision behind this!
