A California man was horrified when he unwrapped his KFC meal and discovered what he claims to be a fried rat instead of chicken.
Devorise Dixon claimed he first saw a “tail” on his weirdly shaped breaded chicken breast. When he inspected the piece of meat, he supposedly discovered that it was actually a rat.
Dixon uploaded several pictures of the alleged rodent to Facebook, then sealed the fried meat in a bag and put it in his freezer. He then returned to the restaurant at a later date and complained to the manager.
“As I bit into it I noticed that it was very hard and rubbery which made me look at it,” Dixon said. “As I looked down at it I noticed that it was in a shape of a rat with a tail.”
Dixon said the experience has left him with chills and that it’s “time for a lawyer," according to his Facebook post
According to a KFC spokesperson, an investigation into the case found that there was no evidence to support Dixon’s claim, the Mirror reports.
“Food safety is our highest priority worldwide and we take allegations of this nature extremely seriously,” the spokesperson noted.
Social media users have suggested that the piece of chicken was merely rat-shaped. Many noted that a determining factor would simply be to cut the piece of chicken open and that the “rat tail” was probably a piece of fried chicken skin.
