Not all superheroes wear capes. A group of brave KFC employees is exposing the fast food chain for its dirty practices when it comes to their famous chicken. In a recently resurfaced video, the crew calls out KFC and Taco Bell for selling old food.
“What do you want the world to know about KFC and Taco Bell?” one employee asks in the video while another takes food from packaging and throws into a container, “So you mean to tell me that the same stuff you had in those cans all day, you put them back in there, put it in the freezer, and you sell them to people tomorrow?” Watch the video below to see the disturbing footage.
The video, which was originally uploaded in 2013, also shows the employees saving old green beans, mac and cheese, and even the company’s famous fried chicken with the intention of reselling to customers the next day. One employee even admits there is mold and mildew growing where the chicken is being stored.
A spokesperson for the company responded to the video, telling the Daily Mail, “This video was filmed many years ago and does not reflect our standards or food handling procedures. It, unfortunately, resurfaces online from time to time, often tagged as various locations inaccurately. The actions of those former employees were unacceptable.”
Employees have also responded to the video, which has been viewed over 5 million times on YouTube, and denied the allegations. “I work at KFC and I can confirm that not all KFC’s do that xD, Never once has that happened at the KFC I work at,” one employee commented before another one added, “Idk where that KFC is located but the KFC I work at we don’t do this shit we take the chicken and throw it away at the end of the both shifts. Then in the morning, we do prep with FRESH food and chicken.”
