Want Flies With That?

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.
