    I think just about every fast food chain has endured some sort of controversy like this. As they keep expanding and feeding an ever growing number of people, it's getting harder and harder to hold accountable every piece of meat that goes through. It'd be more ideal, in my opinion, if we relied on making our own food more, however relatively inconvenient it may be.

    Taken from that article:

    A spokesman for KFC said: "As soon as we were made aware of the results of the EHO (environmental health officer) inspection... we took immediate action to bring the restaurant back up to our strict hygiene standards."

    -As if all the stuff that the EHO found wrong with the place wasn't obvious enough? What sort of imbeciles run KFC?

    That's just damage control. They have to say something like that when a situation like this goes to the public. It's like a non-written PR rule.

    Tough in their defense, the spokesman is associated with KFC corp, likely the regional, so if internal inspection (as in inspection carried out by the corp for their own information) didn't notice those issues the last time they were there, the corp couldn't know about it.

    Nowadays food and hygiene standards in restaurants are higher than ever and every company knows that a PR scandal (like this) can have an extremely bad effect in the sales totals, considering how fierce competition is. That said, I'm under the belief that KFC corp didn't overlook the situation, they most likely didnt know about it.

    Suppose you got a point about the regional manager, but you'd still think the actual store manager would have had the initiative to keep his/her staff in check.

    I had roaches and centipedes in my old apartment... Doesn't mean I wouldn't eat the food I had at home...

    Altough it'll likely never get revealed, I'm pretty sure that store manager is looking for a job now.

    The thing is that managers are oftten pushed into making as much income with as little expense as possible. The methods they employ to achieve that, that's up to them. Some play fair and safe, payment maintnence and adequate hygiene levels. Other well... roaches is what you get.

    But you were responsible for the proper keeping of your food. If you failed to oversee that and the food got infected, only you and those you lived with you would pay the consequences.

    At a restaurant tough, customers are trusting food employees to preppare their meals, thus they need to know that they're in good hands. More, dozens if hundreds of people eat in a restaurant everyday. If a kitchen was contaminated, the consequences would be disastrous. High hygiene standards must be placed because everytime a person gets food poisoning at a restaurant, costumers lose alittle more faith in the food industry, and the whole market pays the price.

    Basically hygiene standards both help costumers as well as restaurants.

    Yea that's true. But I think people are freaking out about it a little too much. I've worked in restaurants for several years and I can tell you that none of them have perfect hygiene. Even the one I'm at now was rated %100 in hygiene and safety and there are silverfish in it, mold in the fridges, an incompetent dishwasher and a few other things which are kind of gross and I don't even wanna mention. If the customers saw the place they'd feel sick, but we serve upwards of 10,000 clients a day and there have never been any complaints or any health problems. No restaurant has great hygiene, especially really busy ones like this KFC. I guess since I’ve worked at so many of them I just know what to expect now

    Shit happens, no one got ill(?) and the manager will have been sacked, it aint going to put me off eating at any of the worlds other fast food chains, cafes or restaurants cos basically, you run the risk of shitty hygeine with any food you didn't prepare yourself.
