A disgusted diner was left horrified after she was about to eat her chicken meal and found it was full of raw GIBLETS. Cassandra Perkins, 22, paid £6 for a Zinger Tower meal and one piece of chicken at the fast- food restaurant.
But when she held the piece of chicken in her hand she noticed flecks of purple and pulled it apart. When she examined it more closely she realised the uncooked giblets and entrails had been left inside the chicken. Cassandra complained to staff at the KFC
in Wellingborough, Northants.
However she said she was just offered to swap her disgusting dinner for a new piece of chicken. She also took pictures of her meal which show the brown spongy-looking giblets inside the chicken. Cassandra, a pharmacist, who lives in Rushden, said: "I was about to bite into it but I thought it looked off so pulled it open and just said 'look at that' and poked it with a straw. "It looked disgusting and pink, I didn't want to touch it. "I first thought that it may have been brain or lung, it certainly wasn't chicken.
"It was the giblets. They didn't even look cooked. If I'd have eaten them I would have been pretty ill. "My burger had a hair in it as well. "I complained and the staff just offered to swap it for a new piece of chicken but there was no way I wanted anything coming out of that store. "I certainly won't be going back and won't eat KFC again."
KFC have now apologised to Cassandra and admitted that staff had forgotten to remove the giblets from her chicken. A spokesman said: "We're proud of the fact that our chicken is hand-prepared and cooked fresh in our kitchens.
"Sometimes mistakes can happen and unfortunately on rare occasions, giblets are not removed when they should have been. "We have reminded our team members to take extra care in future, and if a customer is ever unhappy with their food we encourage them to let our team know, who will always be happy to help."
