KFC Port Antonio gets ‘all clear’ from top parish health inspector

 A combination of images showing a worker attacking a rodent inside the KFC Port Antonio outlet, and an edited screenshot of the homophobic slur directed at a customer inside the KFC Half-Way Tree restaurant, two of the issues the local fast chair has had to work to resolve recently.

A combination of images showing a worker attacking a rodent inside the KFC Port Antonio outlet, and an edited screenshot of the homophobic slur directed at a customer inside the KFC Half-Way Tree restaurant, two of the issues the local fast chair has had to work to resolve recently.

Portland’s Chief Public Health Inspector, Lorenzo Hume, has given the all-clear sign for the KFC franchise in Port Antonio, Portland, and is allaying fears of a rat infestation at the facility.

According to Hume, a team from the Public Health Department inspected the location and reported that the facility is safe for food consumption.

The outlet has been under scrutiny since a video surfaced on social media recently, showing a rodent (rat) running atop the menu board in the establishment.

Hume said it was confirmed by KFC that the outlet in Port Antonio was the one in the video, and that it was a rodent that was seen. He said the report stated that the rodent entered the facility through a hole, which has since been sealed.

According to Hume, the Public Health Department will step up its inspections of high-risk establishments in the parish.
