Yum! Brands Engages Pest Control Expert for Urban Settings

March 02, 2007 – We apologize to our customers and want to reassure them that we have been working around the clock to prevent this from happening again. We have engaged Dr. Robert (Bobby) Corrigan to thoroughly and independently review the application of the high standards we require of our operators in New York City. Dr. Corrigan is a renowned expert in the area of pest control in challenging urban environments and we look forward to his review. We also are working in partnership with the health department and will continue to insist that all ADF restaurants in New York City are fully inspected and given a clean bill of health before they are re-opened. Nothing is more important to us than our customers’ health and safety,” said Emil Brolick, President, U.S. Brands, Yum! Brands, Inc.
