Want Flies With That?

Written by PETA | April 13, 2010
Kentucky Fried Cruelty

As if cutting off chickens’ beaks and scalding birds alive weren’t dirty enough, KFC has broken some pretty foul food-hygiene rules at one of its busiest branches in the U.K. In 2008, health inspectors found mice, flies, and cockroaches during an inspection of the carry-out restaurant. Originally denying this and other violations (including failure to provide hygienic conditions for hand-washing), KFC finally ‘fessed up to the charges in a recent hearing.

From mold- and dirt-covered floors, walls and ceilings in food-preparation areas to trays of bread and raw chicken caked with black grease, this KFC let it all hang out. And did I mention the three KFC employees who were photographed having a hot-tub party in another KFC’s sink? That image is almost as sickening as the images in this video, which have prompted hundreds of thousands of people to sign our petition.

    aneliese…there has to be a sink for cleaning the cooking prep. Utensils among other things…. anyway…i know that there have always been a lot of minor issues at all fast food places but it has drastically gotten worse it sickens me.

  • Kevin Sanderson says:

    So putting down one fast food restaurant will make you stop eating chicken all together. People grow up. Agriculture will always be here and people will keep eating at KFC and every fast food restaurant there is.

  • Aneliese says:

    Well the heck is there even a sink in KFC?! It’s not like they serve food on plates and use silverware.

  • Ely Watson says:

    Does not surprise me. They have been known for their cruelty for years. Why would they care about cleanliness?

  • DARFEUILLE Carine says:

    Give up being cruel with the animals! They are living beings who feel the same pain as to us!
