KFC say ban on hand wipes at a Leicester outlet was a 'misunderstanding'
by Peter Warzynski
Fast food giant KFC has admitted that a ban on alcohol-based hand wipes in a Leicester branch was a 'misunderstanding'.
Bosses at the international chain have apologised after a customer who visited an outlet in St George's retail park was refused a hand wipe because staff said it was against the company's Halal policy.
Staff said this was because the wipes are soaked in an alcohol-infused liquid and alcohol is forbidden in the Muslim Holy book, the Quran.
