It should be no surprise to regular readers of this blog that we keep an eye on happenings at KFC, so this caught our eye: According to news reports, the manager of a KFC in Manchester, New Hampshire, received a hoax phone call from someone who claimed to be from KFC’s corporate offices and told her to test the fire-suppression system. When she did so, she and two staffers preparing sandwiches were coated with a chemical powder that is a respiratory irritant. Authorities were summoned, who took the unfortunate trio to the hospital for decontamination.
Just a couple of observations:
- Even without being doused with firefighting chemicals, KFC’s chicken sandwiches are already contaminated.
- Pulling a dangerous hoax on unsuspecting people is cruel, but it’s much less cruel than what KFC does to chickens.
