KFC customer 'finds fried rat' in meal
A disgusted California man claims he found a deep-fried rat in his KFC meal, chomping into the cooked rodent before realizing its repulsive, odd shape.
"As I bit into a piece of it, I noticed that it was very hard/tough and rubbery," customer Devorise Dixon wrote on his Facebook page, accompanied with photos of the find. "I looked down at it and saw that it was in a shape of a rat with a tail."
The 25-year-old from Watts, Calif., had ordered a three-piece chicken tender meal at a Los Angeles KFC onWilmington Ave.
"It sent deep chills throughout my whole body! I've been feeling weird ever since," he said.
A KFC spokesman said the fried chicken company has "no evidence to support this allegation."
The fast food chain has made "various attempts" to reach Dixon, who is "refusing to talk to us directly or through an attorney," spokesman Rodrigo Coronel told the Daily News.
“The images the customer originally posted do not include this second angle because it clearly shows it’s a piece of hand-breaded white meat chicken,” he said in a statement. “Based on this, and the fact that he refuses to allow anyone to see the product, we are left to believe that he intended to deceive the public with this hoax and we are considering all options."
Coronel declined to specify the options being explored.
Dixon did not immediately to a request for comment.
