Red Rooster has closed two Perth stores after disgusting photos surfaced online.
The images show a pretty big pile of cooked chooks stacked in the boot of a branded hatchback outside a store in Forrestfield.
It’s understood that the pics were taken on Wednesday… when temperatures hit 35C and conditions were humid.
Mark Copley, who took the photos, said “the chooks were on rotisserie skewers being brought into the store.”
“The boot was lined with cardboard but nothing else,” he added.
“Not wrapped, not refrigerated. The opportunity for cross-contamination is immense, plus the fact food is stored in the danger zone for temperature.”
Since the photos surfaced, Red Rooster have closed the Waypoint and Forrestfield stores, saying it is “extremely disappointed by the incident”.
“These stores will remain closed while detailed investigations are conducted, required actions are taken and we are satisfied that the operating standards of these locations meet the high expectations of our strict brand standards.
“We have alerted the relevant authorities and are working with them closely while our local staff on the ground undertake the investigation and actions required to meet our brand standards.
“As a precaution, all potentially impacted product has been removed and disposed of.
“All surfaces, equipment and facilities have been thoroughly cleaned and sanitised.
“Supplier deliveries have been suspended until such time stores are approved to reopen.”
