A KFC customer protested against the fast food restaurant's unsanitary conditions by ordering 2,000 "Variety Buckets" to go in Wuhan, central China's Hubei province.

The customer, surnamed Yang, was on business trip from Beijing to Wuhan when he decided to eat at a KFC on Tuesday, September 4. He claims to have seen staff members making hamburgers with their bare hands and no masks.

According to Yang, the manager was reluctant to apologize and explained that the cook forgot to wear his gloves because there were too many customers. The manager then said the food was produced under completely sanitary conditions.

In response Yang ordered 2,000 buckets to put in front of the store in order to bring attention to the restaurant's sanitary conditions.

The store refused to sell any more buckets to Yang after 22 buckets.

Yang said he has been to many KFC's in other countries and found them to be very strict in sanitation standards.
Health authorities in Wuhan have launched investigations and will review security videos to see if the kitchen staff wore the proper protection.

Zhang Zhikai from the Wuhan Food and Drug Administration says gloves are required in food processing. "Ready-to-eat food must be produced with gloved hands or in specific containers," he says.

KFC stressed their regulations that cooks must wear gloves when making food following the incident and reiterated that their food is safe.
