Did you all see the last sentence?
"But it is rare to see so many rats congregating in one place in such public view."

Let's see this is the first time some one walking by the huge windows looked inside and saw these rats. My guess they were put thier by a disgruntled employee or competing near by restaraunt.

This is just the beginning! We need to regulate the Food inspectors, who are suppose to check this stuff out for us.
How many ads for hire have you seen lately for workers in this industry.....Too many dirty restaurants. Should be bleached down each night to fight some of the germs and bacteria. God help us...

This is and many other instances is just a reminder of how toothless the FDA has become. Bugs in your flour and cereal and rats in restaurants. These things are allowed to go on because people have let them. These fast-foods restaurants these days don't care about anything accept feeding you slop and taking your money. There use to be a time when you didn't have to look under your burger to make sure nothing wasn't crawlling underneath. Those day's are long gone. No more grissle burgers or fast food for me. Take my advice, its better to go to the supermarket and cook your own food so your'e not disappointed.

Finally, someone who gets it. I'm no fan of TB or KFC but this sure smells like the work of some evil doers. Rats are in the best kitchens and even in my Cabinet! Ha Ha Ha

actually gloves get just as dirty as the hands
My favorite was watching someone make my sub with their gloved hands, then HANDLE MY MONEY WITH THOSE SAME GLOVES ON AND GO BACK TO MAKE THE NEXT SUB!!!!

Yes you are very wrong. As long as proper hand washing techniques are used many resturaunts use bare hands to prepare food. Enjoy!
I personally prefer no gloves; Many times untrained employees will not change the gloves frequently enough, because their hands don't feel dirty. They get it in their minds that they are protecting their hands, not the food. At least bare handed they will feel their hands getting dirty, and be more apt to wash them. That is provided the management ensures there are no sores or lesions,and the nails are trimmed, etc. And that utensils are provided for handling raw products. Especially in Fast Food joints, you don't usually have 'prep' people handling the finished products. They are operationally setup to address that HACCP

Why do I have to quote myself? People who post here consistently complain about bad journalism and not looking at the real story.
You have all been brainwashed into believing they couldn't print it if it wasn't true. This was someone trying to sabatoge this place. Ask yourself a few questions.
1. Why is this the first time someone saw a rat through the big windows? And how is there suddenly 12 full grown ones at this place?
2. This ones easy, 12 rats appear overnight, how?
3. How come every news agency was "Tipped off" and the place was swarming with the media and people willing to talk?
4. AND THIS is the most important. Why were the rats in the common area running around the seats and what not? Shouldn't they (The rats) be eating the food they so desperatly seek?
Man use your heads, they were put there by a disgruntled employye or a competting restaraunt.
