A Florida restaurant owner is fighting back against accusations that her food made a customer sick after the patron complained she found maggots in the dish. 

Denise Daley, owner of the Caribbean Sunrise Restaurant and Baker in Jacksonville, said there is absolutely no way her jerk chicken specialty made anyone ill after giving a tour to Action News Jax over the weekend. 

'There was no doubt on our part that the food was safe,' Daley said, adding that her famous chicken is cooked in an oven, smoked on a grill, stored in a hot box, and heated in a microwave before being served to customers. 

Daley spoke out against the accusations after customer Keondra White claimed she found maggots in her food, posting footage of the to-go order to the internet.

The restaurant admitted via social media that there was an incident that 'compromised our standards' earlier in the week, but insisted they were not at fault for White's experience.
