INDIANAPOLIS – A video posted online by a concerned customer appears to show multiple health code violations, including rats in the kitchen and food on the floor, inside a chicken restaurant on Indianapolis’ northeast side.
One customer, who wishes to remain anonymous, said he went to a location in Jordan recently when he saw the unsanitary conditions. The restaurant, which is located at the intersection of 42nd Street and Post Office near Lawrence, specializes in chicken, gyros and fish.
The man who recorded and posted a video of the restaurant’s kitchen online said he was waiting in line to order when he saw a door in the back open.
“[I] went to the door to look through it and saw a lot of unsanitary conditions and activities going on behind the door,” the man said.[I] opened the door and started recording from my phone.”
The video, which was provided to FOX59, appears to show employees in Jordan operating a kitchen that has numerous food items stored on the ground. At one point in the video, a mouse is seen walking around the kitchen.
Both videos recorded by the customer in question are below. WARNING: these videos contain profanity.
The kitchen staff, some of whom appear to be wearing no shoes but only socks, are shown continuing to prepare food in the messy kitchen as the customer records.
On Sunday, the Marion County Health Department said they have received inquiries about the restaurant and that it has been turned over to the food division. However, the department’s offices are closed on Mondays. No further information was provided.
FOX59 has reached out to the alleged location of Jordan’s restaurant for a statement.
