Rats in Taco Bell and KFC

CNNMoney.com is reporting videotape of a dozen rats were seen scurrying inside Taco Bell and KFC in New York City's, Greenwich Village friday morning. There have been a number of health codes violated since December for rats and cockroaches.

The company said they have been trying to do construction changes to the building, but admitted the situation might have worsened with the recent work being done.

"This is completely unacceptable and is an absolute violation of our high standards," KFC and Taco Bell said in a statement. "This restaurant has been closed and we are addressing the issue with the franchise owner. We will not allow this store to reopen until is it completely resanitized and given a clean bill of health," Chrom.com reports.

Rats have been a problem in New York because of the abundant food supply throughout the city. There has not been so many rats in one place in the public view before.
