Horror Hygiene in London KFC


UK Environmental health inspectors have launched a prosecution case against a branch of the popular fast food chain Kentucky Fried Chicken after finding cockroaches, mice, and filthy conditions in a Leicester Square branch of the restaurant.

The inspectors claim to have found deeply-ingrained grime covering walls and shelves as well as a one-metre pool of dried blood in the fly infested branch.

The KFC restaurant now faces 13 charges brought under food hygiene laws following the inspection in August last year.

  More than one year...  
from inspection to being charged?

KFC is of course pleading not guilty although they admit to immediately acting on the results of the inspection.

What I find even more shocking: "The restaurant is being closely monitored to ensure that they are maintained." - so it was not shut down for good and people are still eating there?

always thought of London can show good example of how to keep restaurants on first level. Maybe there are yet ones here as well but after the communist system thanks to God most of them are in good condition.

  Good ol PFK.  
I ordered a crispy chicken burger at the KFC in Newmarket Ontario a few years back and when I opened it up the bottom bun was covered with a carpet of mold. All they offered to do is give me a new one without the mold.

  KFC is disgusting  
I was there only 5 or so times in my life and it always made me sick. I even had to vomit one time shortly after eating there. But many KFC in Germany are closed now and replaced by McD or Burger King. I guess nobody did eat there anymore, no wonder why.

A lot of the Kentucky Fried Crap restaurants in The US are old and run down. They not only need a good cleaning, they need to be torn down and rebuilt.

And to make use of this opportunity: Most people tend to associate it with a cartoon character. It actually is my preferred username due to me being addicted to having a computer mouse in my hand.

I notice the same thing about the one that has been there around 25 years now. The other one we have is so small and right on the corner of one of the busiest intersections. I told the family next time we go out we are trying Steak and Shake.

  Incoming Flood of Euro/Hygiene Jokes!  

The Englishman’s wife steps up to the tee and, as she bends over to place her ball, a gust of wind blows her skirt up and reveals her lack of underwear. Good God, woman! Why aren’t you wearing any knickers?” her husband demanded. Well, you don’t give me enough housekeeping money to afford any.” The Englishman immediately reaches into his pocket and says, “For the sake of decency, here’s £50. Go and buy yourself some underwear.”

Next, the Irishman’s wife bends over to set her ball on the tee. Her skirt also blows up to show that she, too, is wearing no undies. Blessed Virgin Mary, woman! You’ve no knickers. Why not?” She replies, “I can’t afford any on the money you give me.” He reaches into his pocket and says, “For the sake of decency, here’s £20. Go and buy yourself some underwear!”

Lastly, the Scotsman’s wife bends over. The wind also takes her skirt over her head to reveal that she, too, is naked under it. Sweet mudder of Jaysus, Aggie! Where the frig are yer drawers?” She too explains, “You dinna give me enough money ta be able ta affarrd any.” The Scotsman reaches into his pocket and says, “Well, fer the love ‘o decency, here’s a comb….. Tidy yerself up a bit.”

So...the moral of the story is that the english, irish and Scot men are gay? and the Scot is cheap too?

Dude if I was married I´d love for my wife not to wear any undies in the house :)

This is all from an inspection done last August.... how many checks have been done since then on this KFC?

With the deeply-ingrained grime on the walls I cannot help but wonder when was the previous inspection done on this KFC?

I am surprised we don´t hear more of this kind of thing happening what with all the cuts that have been happening over the last few years.

  Sounds like  
a good case for Gordon Ramsey. He´ll have that place cleaned up in no time AND serving Chicken Cordon Bleu etc!

  All KFCs are not created equal  
While the UK´s Leicester Square branch of KFC may have been filthy, none of the ones I´ve visited in the U.S.--at least in the Southeastern U.S.--are dirty at all. In fact, they usually receive high ratings for cleanliness. The floors are always kept clean--apparently clean enough to eat off of compared to the Leicester Square branch. The deplorable conditions there reflect on the owner of that specific location, and are not typical of the KFC chain as a whole. No, I do not work for KFC, but I´ve eaten at quite a few during lunch when traveling in connection with my job. If a restaurant, fast food or otherwise, is not clean, I won´t eat there. I´ll walk out and go elsewhere. I have never walked out on a KFC in the U.S. I´m just saying don´t judge all KFCs--or American restaurants in general--by the Leicester Square KFC.

  veXing situation  
I´m half Cherokee, a quarter Irish, and a quarter Scot; but mostly, I´m just a Southern U.S. redneck (not to be confused with redskin). If a Southern American couple was on the golf course and the wind blew up her skirt while setting the tee, the husband would just smile and say, "Take your time, honey. Don´t rush your shot. Good form, by the way."
