Jamaica: Rat walks on KFC menu board in viral video

(Jamaica Star) Dozens of persons ran from a KFC restaurant on Sunday after a rat ran across the menu board, just as hungry persons were preparing to collect their favorite pieces of chicken.

In a video (shown below) circulating online, an employee at the fast food chain, apparently startled by the rat’s presence, quickly grabbed a broom and took a swipe at the rodent.

The video does not show clearly where the rat landed.

A large number of persons exited the facility, while expressing disgust and shock at what was taking place.


Restaurants of Jamaica (ROJ), the operators of KFC, yesterday expressed regret at the situation even as it claims to be “serving the best products of the highest quality to our customers.”

“This incident is absolutely in no way an indicator of the usual high standards and procedures which are held throughout the ROJ group,” Andrei Roper, brand manager for KFC, said in a statement.

According to Roper, Sunday’s occurrence was “highly unusual, unfortunate and isolated”. He said that quality assurance and operation teams have since carried out “comprehensive inspections and sanitisation of the restaurant involved”.

“In addition, the necessary inspections by local independent third-party authorities are being carried out to ensure that we continue to be fully in compliance with the requisite standards,” he said.
