Rodents And Cockroaches Found At KFC Restaurant

Posted by 3citynewswire on 04/08/2010

Leicester Square, London. FRIED chicken chain KFC is facing a heavy fine after cockroaches, mice and flies were found at one of its busiest restaurants.
The fast food giant admitted breaching food hygiene regulations by failing to keep its Leicester Square outlet clean and in good repair.

They accepted having inadequate procedures for pest control, no soap in a hand basin and no proper hygiene practices in place.

Environmental health officers launched an investigation in August 2008 after visiting the KFC in Coventry Street.

Officials said a cockroach scurried across a counter and a mouse ran across the floor during their visit.

KFC, which has its British headquarters in Woking, Surrey, entered guilty pleas to five charges of breaching food hygiene regulations.

Eight others will lie on the file.

David Whiting, representing the company, said that while KFC accepted faults, “the company has gone a long way to try and prevent these things from happening again”.

The hearing was adjourned for sentence on May 10 this year.

When the allegations were first reported, a spokesman for KFC said: “As soon as we were made aware of the results of the inspection we took immediate action to bring the restaurant back up to our strict hygiene standards.

“The restaurant is being closely monitored to ensure that they are maintained.”

KFC will be back before the court on May 10.
