Dairy Queen has been a staple of the American diner for decades, and it may be time to take another look at what the company has to offer.
A growing number of the restaurant chain’s employees have become concerned about the quality of their food.
The company’s president, Dave Yost, told the New York Times last month that he had received dozens of emails from employees who were worried about the state of their cheese, butter and milk.
“I’ve got to ask you, have you ever had an ice cream cone?” he said, according to the Times.
“And then, what do you eat?”
Some customers have also begun to question the safety of the company’s products, including a recent incident where a man was fatally stabbed after a customer refused to take off his hat in front of him.
Yost has blamed the recent outbreak on a “small number of individuals,” but the restaurant company’s CEO, Craig Jansing, has also said that he has no hard evidence to suggest that the outbreak was connected to the cheeses and butter.
Yutani is the world’s largest producer of milk and dairy products, and has been the target of lawsuits in the past.
In 2010, Yutano filed a $7.4 billion lawsuit against a former employee, accusing the employee of falsifying data and fabricating the cause of the food poisoning in a lawsuit that the former employee was forced to pay $5.8 million.
A year later, the company filed a separate $10 million lawsuit against the former worker, alleging that he defrauded the company of $1.4 million by falsely claiming that the company had suspended him in 2012 for failing to meet certain performance standards.
The former employee has since died, and his widow filed a wrongful death suit against the company.
