KFC scrambles its name as it issues a 3-letter apology for its U.K. chicken crisis

A temporarily closed branch of KFC, with a notice on the door stating they have had a delivery hiccup, is seen in the Surbiton suburb of south west, London, Wednesday, Feb. 21, 2018. Chicken is still as scarce as hen’s teeth at KFC’s British outlets. KFC says about 470 of the fried chicken chain’s 900 U.K. restaurants remained closed Tuesday because of a chicken shortage. The company says the disruption started last week, when it changed its delivery provider to DHL. (AP Photo/Matt Dunham)
