KFC Serves Garbage. No, Really.

Published by PETA.

So we all knew that KFC has some trashy practices, but did you know just how disgusting they can be? Recently, a delivery person recorded a KFC employee in Hong Kong picking fried chicken out of a trash can, putting it on a tray, and serving it to customers. While this might be shocking to those who still turn a blind eye to the company’s hideous ways, I’m definitely not surprised. KFC has proven to be fairly heartless in the past, and we know they aren’t big on that whole “ethics” thing. So, should it be such a big deal that employees don’t mind serving deep-fried flesh from a trash can?



The delivery person who brought this to our attention says that trash-diving is a regular practice at this particular location. According to this source, the employees stop cooking and throw everything away before the restaurant closes. When anyone else orders, they serve them literal junk food. Oh yeah, and the manager approves of it because it saves money! Gross.

Know what else KFC seems to think is perfectly acceptable? Check out our undercover investigations to find out for yourself. I certainly know The Roost wouldn’t take this laying down!
