KFC Sells Deep Fried Rat?
A horrified customer claims to have found a KFC deep fried RAT in his takeaway meal.
25-year-old man from California Devorise Dixon said he was bought a box meal in Wilmington, California, when he spotted a ‘tail’ on what he at first thought was a strangely-shaped breaded chicken breast.
“It was very nasty,” Dixon, told to Los Angeles radio station. “I spit it out. I looked down at my hand and I realized that it was in the shape of a rat with a tail and everything in it.”
Dixon post the photos of chicken rat tender or deep fried rat on facebook and put it in the freezer. He said he returned to the restaurant with photos and his receipt.
“The manager actually freaked out, confirmed that it was a rat,” Dixon told the radio station. “She apologized for it. They actually just offered me a free meal.” But Dixon just declined the offer and hired a lawyer instead.
KFC confirmed to Business Insider that they had reached out to Dixon and requested him to send the chicken to an independent lab to evaluate the product. But KFC said Dixon refused to talk to the restaurant chain directly or through an attorney.
KFC also said Dixon have refused to turn over the “rat.”
“We have made various attempts to contact him, but he is refusing to either talk to us personally or through a lawyer. Nor has he come forth with the chicken piece in question for verification,” on KFC statement as published on their facebook page.
Even without KFC’s comments, though, the situation appears suspicious. First and foremost, there’s a crack in the breading where you can see the white meat underneath.
There is also a noticeable lack of any bones Dixon would have bitten into if he had taken a bite of the skull as he says. KFC also sent Business Insider a picture of what it looks like turned over, where you can clearly see the white meat poking through.
Well, is it true that KFC now selling deep fried rat? KFC will update immediately for any progress of this case.
