[ Video ] KFC workers washing chicken on a dirty floor

The KFC workers who were photographed hosing down raw chicken on a dirty floor outside the fast food restaurant in Braamfontein were trying to hide from their management that they had coated chicken which was meant to be discarded.

This was according to a statement posted by KFC on its website after the picture went viral on social networking sites.

“The franchisee required the team to discard [the spoilt] product before breading it to avoid breading [mixture of flour and our secret recipe of 11 herbs and spices] waste,” KFC said in a statement posted on its official website.

“The team had some waste that they had discarded with breading on it and they were washing it off to hide it from management.”

The popular fast food joint said it was shocked by the pictures which began circulating on Friday, which were taken from the balcony of a high-rise flat close to the restaurant.

‘Discarded chicken’

“Like you, we were really shocked to see the pictures posted from KFC Braamfontein,” the fried chicken outlet said.

“At first [we] couldn’t believe what we were seeing. We immediately closed the store while we investigated and were extremely relieved to find out that this was discarded chicken, never intended to be sold.”

KFC said it was good that the staff had intended to discard the bad meat but the process was not carried out correctly.

“We have strict processes in place, even when it comes to food disposal and will not tolerate our stores not following them. We have already dealt very firmly with the owner and responsible people involved.”

Scores of people took to Twitter to express their outrage and disgust at the perceived incident.

“Very poor handling by #KFC of meat on dirty floor incident. They are franchises, with little oversight. Shows no respect for their clients.” — Keith Adam Mahommed (@Keith_AM) May 9, 2015

Others joked about the incident, including puppet comedian Chester Missing.

“Why did the chicken cross the road? Because that’s where the KFC employee put it. Why do u think it’s called Streetwise 2? #KFCBraam” — Chester Missing (@chestermissing) May 8, 2015

“KFC says that it is shocked that nudes of its chicks taking a shower are out in the public.” — Sentletse (@Sentletse) May 8, 2015
