Kentucky Fried Chicken is suspending the use of the slogan "It's Finger Lickin' Good" amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
In a statement on Monday, KFC said the use of the 64-year-old slogan "doesn't feel quite right."
"We find ourselves in a unique situation – having an iconic slogan that doesn't quite fit in the current environment," KFC officials said in the statement. "While we are pausing the use of It's Finger Lickin' Good, rest assured the food craved by so many people around the world isn't changing one bit."
KFC said the slogan will not be suspended permanently and they will bring it back "when the time is right."
The CDC recommends washing your hands frequently and avoid touching your face with contaminated hands to prevent the spread of the virus.

A Marietta woman will spend the Thanksgiving holidays in jail for firing a handgun into a Kentucky Fried Chicken drive-thru window because she didn't receive a fork or napkins with her order.
Jonelle Jade Dare, 33 was arrested Tuesday, nearly a month after she was accused of shooting into a KFC restaurant in Shelbyville, Kentucky.
The incident occurred Oct. 28, Shelbyville police told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. No one inside the restaurant was injured.
Witnesses said the woman was irate about not receiving napkins or utensils with her meal, according to the Louisville Courier-Journal.
After exchanging words with the cashier, Dare pulled a handgun and fired through the open drive-thru window.
Investigators tracked her to Atlanta and secured warrants for her arrest with the help of the U.S. Marshals Service, according to the AJC.
She was arrested around 12:30 a.m. Tuesday in Sandy Springs. A handgun was recovered.
Dare is being held without bond while awaiting extradition to Kentucky, according to AJC.com.
"Fulton County Sheriff's deputies have notified authorities in Kentucky that Ms. Dare is available for pick up," the agency told AJC.com. "They have 15 business days to do so."
