A woman has taken to Facebook to expose Florida‘s fast food restaurant,

“Slim Chickens,”

for having roaches in their food, according to WEAR Pensacola per the NY Post. The

“Slim Chickens”

location on Nine Mile Road in Pensacola is under fire after customer, Haile Kirkland, posted a video to Facebook showing cockroaches cooked into her chicken tenders. The video has garnered thousands of views with nearly 1,500 shares since Feb. 16. 

Kirkland told the outlet,

“I probably ate one or two of my tenders and then my husband sat his food down and he was like, ‘Here check my food,’ and it was in his food… And I was like ‘Oh great.’”

Since the now-viral social media post an anonymous employee has come forward showing videos of roaches crawling in different areas in the kitchen.

The fast food joint reportedly has only been open since March 2021 and has not received any health code violations. According to WEAR, who reached out to the Department of Business and Professional Regulation, say they visited

“Slim Chicken”

and found

“20 dead roaches in the store.”

The DBPR scheduled a follow-up inspection on Wednesday and found no violations.

The owner of the location, who has not been named, sent the following statement to WEAR,

“My team was immediately made aware of the complaint, and we responded swiftly to ensure all health & safety precautions were evaluated. I met with our local pest elimination company the following morning at the restaurant to thoroughly inspect the premises and provide further pest elimination treatment. Although we believe all pest activity has been resolved they will continue to come out weekly to monitor and provide additional treatments as needed.” 

Kirkland says she will be returning to the fast food restaurant once it is cleaned.

“I’m not gonna lie, they have some of the best chicken in town, I just need it to be clean,”

she told the outlet.
