There seems to be a couple of articles floating around the internet claiming that bearded men have poop in their beards. All bearded men do not have poop on their faces. All these articles claiming that bearded men have have poop on their faces don’t actually have scientific facts. Their opinion is based on tests done by swabbing a couple of faces. The real issue isn’t beards, the real issue is about hygiene and about bacteria on people’s hands contaminating counters, doorknobs, homes, restaurants and hotels.
According to the article linked above, the real issue is related to men not washing their hands and touching their beards:
Apparently the key to a poo-free beard is to make sure you wash your hands regularly and avoid playing with and twirling the hair.

How many men, women and children do you know that don’t wash their hands when the go to the bathroom and touch their hair, kitchen surfaces, office doors and worse YOU! Seriously, this is the bigger issue. Leave men with beards and hipsters with beards alone. They are cool and make our world a better place because they are different.
