ACDC Infested

We have received multiple accounts (and pictures) of insects in the bagel bin at ACDC spotted around 3:30pm this afternoon.

CLICK HERE to see the LiveJournal thread about it.

UPDATE: Maureen King of Campus Dining tells a Mads reader, "I am as disgusted as you are. I will get to the bottom of this."

UPDATE 2: Looking at the pictures more closely, the insects are clearly on a piece of fly paper. There is no doubt that the paper should not be in the bagel bin, so this is probably just someone's idea of a twisted prank.

Why am I not surprised?

That's why you should always toast your bagels first.

This is why Mads should post campus news - prompt, relevant, interesting and concise. What's up haters?

That's a piece of flypaper. It's possible someone put that in there as some kind of a sick joke to try to get everyone believe there's bugs in there. Not that I don't doubt that there's bugs in ACDC, but they're usually in the back where they're cooking stuff. And anyways, we all eat many many insect eggs and stuff in our food all the time.

i doubt it was a prank, but someone may have found a bug and put the fly paper there to see if there were more before reporting it. this is pretty gross. i saw one of the DC workeres cleaning the bagel shelf today, but they were still selling the bagels (WHY?)

Now, I will no longer innocently reach into the bagel bin to make my beloved cream cheese on toasted bagel, knowing I have to keep a look out for INSECTS.


This makes me very depressed.

( i saw a HUGE cockroach in the downstairs bathroom at the library, too. the body was like a good 2.5 inches long. i work there, and didnt go back into the bathroom for 2 weeks)

I hope Nate Silver and Morgan Warners see this. Aramark tools.

Well, I'm glad you've acknowledged that the insects might have been put in the bagel bin as a joke, and have changed your alarmist head line *BREAKING NEWS* ACDC INFESTED.

Maybe you should get all the facts before you post things like that.

mind you beyond just that think about it all you see there are those 2 little bugs that most ppl swallow without realizing many times, and a moth, i mean its not that insane to think they could have been trapped there...

There's a huge difference between those little things and say a rat or a cockroach, I don't love the dc don't get me wrong, but it's wrong to freak kids out like that....

sensationalist news! will get you hits. i think the girl who posted the lj post has been waiting to jump down the throats of campus dining...


anyway, i don't understand why there would be a piece of flypaper there, unless 1) someone was playing a prank, or 2) someone had seen the bugs before and planted it there for evidence.

Sonia said...

I am the girl who posted to the Vassar LJ. I resent the implication that I am just out to find excuses to destroy Aramark. I have no idea why there would be a trap there, and I thought other people might be as utterly disgusted as I was. I haven't been able to eat at ACDC since.
