KFC challenges the report on E.coli traces contained in fried chicken

The Indian unit of fast food chain KFC, owned by Yum Brands Inc, on Friday challenged the results of a test showing the presence of bacteria linked to food poisoning in a sample of its fried chicken, dismissing them as “false allegations”, said a Reuters report.

On Friday, a children’s rights group in Telangana said that it had submitted samples of KFC’s fried chicken legs to the state food laboratory on June 18.

The laboratory report, which was seen by Reuters, detailed traces of bacteria such as E.coli, which indicates the presence of sewage or animal waste, and salmonella.

In a statement, KFC said it had not heard from any authorities and was unclear about the circumstances in which the samples were obtained. “There is no possibility of any microbial development in our food, which is freshly cooked at 170 degrees Celsius,” it added, vowing to seek a clarification from the concerned authorities, further added the Reuters report.

Yum! Brands has been in India for more than 12 years and is one of the largest and fastest growing restaurant companies in the country. In India, the company has established a highly successful business model by accelerating its operations and growing aggressively.
