Video resurfaces of bugs thrown into Gatton KFC fryer

A video where Gatton KFC staff threw bugs around the kitchen, some landing in the deep fryer, has resurfaced on social media.

The video was sent to the Gatton Star, and residents via Facebook have labelled the actions at the restaurant as “disgusting”, however KFC has come out to say it’s a video from 2019.

The video is captioned with a Snap Chat title “Gatton KFC be hella nasty” and on its recent upload to social media, has been shared more than 400 times.

The Gatton Star understands KFC fielded numerous calls on Friday about the video and the staff involved are not currently employed by the Gatton takeaway giant.
