CHANDLER, Ariz. -- An Arizona mother of four has received a hand-delivered letter from a lawyer prohibiting her from setting foot in eight Phoenix-area McDonald's and threatening her with criminal trespassing charges if she does.
Chandler resident Erin Carr-Jordan has been on a national crusade to clean up fast-food play areas, claiming the pathogens she found in them threaten children's health. She is also an Arizona State University Instructor.
Carr-Jordan told The Arizona Republic the incident she believes led to the lawyer's letter happened during one of her repeated visits to a Gilbert McDonald's. Carr-Jordan alleges she discovered antibiotic-resistant staph or MRSA, known to cause potentially life-threatening infections in the restaurant's PlayPlace.
A McDonald's spokeswoman in Illinois says the company has and will continue to talk with Carr-Jordan in an effort to address her concerns, but added that recent actions by Carr-Jordan have become disruptive to its employees and customers.
