Soda fountain machines could make you sick,

"Drinking a beverage from a restaurant's soda fountain machine could make you sick, claims a research team at Hollins University.

Water, Coke, Pepsi and these soda's diet versions, when dispensed through fountain machines, contained bacteria that have the potential to cause gastrointestinal illness for people who consume them, according to research by a five-person team of faculty members and students.

Their research, which tested beverages served from 31 soda machines at Roanoke Valley fast-food establishments, suggests that the interior tubing inside these machines harbors harmful bacteria.

No food-borne illnesses have been linked to these machines in Virginia. Even so, this group of professors and students hopes that the findings, which appeared online last month in the International Journal of Food Microbiology, will encourage restaurants and public health officials to take a closer look at contaminants that may lurk inside these machines."
