First Posted: 07/13/11 07:01 PM ET Updated: 09/12/11 06:12 AM ET

Mother of four and developmental psychologist Erin Carr-Jordan has videotaped more than 50 playlands from fast food restaurants such as Burger King, Chuck E. Cheese's and McDonald's. Her results are not pretty. She sent samples from one location to a lab, which discovered 13 different pathogens that are able to cause disease in children--coliform, four different kinds of staph, likely meningitis and gonorrhea, and more.

Watch Carr-Jordan's tour of the contaminated areas below and learn more about the corporations' responses at the Los Angeles Times.
