A manager at an Oregon KFC location in the US is suing the restaurant owner after he claims he was forced to serve rotten chicken to customers.
In the suit, filed this week, the plaintiff/manager explains that “chicken not served within 12 days of its kill date developed a noticeably foul, rotten smell. In addition, expired chicken changed color from white to light green and the blood on the chicken began to noticeably thicken and coagulate.” He also notes that he tried to approach his boss about throwing the rotten chicken away but was told “to cook and serve the chicken immediately.”
After multiple incidences, the plaintiff and the defendant could not seem to come to an agreement on how the restaurant should be run. At that point, the manager was fired for “arguing with leadership” and “not creating an environment of team work with leadership and owner.”
The two will battle it out in court to see who wins but if the plaintiff can prove he was forced to serve rotten chicken or be fired, you can pretty much assume he’s going to win.
And for those of you curious to know the specific location of the “green chicken,” it was Seaside Oregon. Might want to skip lunch next time you pass through.
