KFC served me chicken brains, says clucking angry customer
We're not veterinarians or biologists, and hopefully this is abundantly clear before you read too much of Bitterwallet. So we have to be honest with you - we don't know what part of an animal this is. Maybe you can tell us - is it a chicken kidney? Or a chicken brain?
Whatever the hell it is, the Swindon Advertiser reports that it was found in a piece of otherwise delicious white chicken meat, served up by KFC. Avid Bitterwallet reader Barry Humphries (or it may be Humphreys, the newspaper isn't sure) found the chuck's organ after biting into the Colonel's meal deal, and was so upset by his discovery that he had to take several days off work.
The franchise responsible said:
"...on this very rare occasion, the chicken was not fully trimmed prior to cooking. We have contacted our suppliers, who have identified the item as a kidney. While there was no health risk, we agree that this is unsightly, and have apologised to Mr Humphries and offered him a full refund."
That wasn't good enough for Barry Humphries, who isn't accepting KFC's apology:
"It is clearly a chicken brain and no matter what anyone else says I know what I found. I had to take days off work because I was feeling so sick and I have lost money. The company have only offered to give me the cost of the meal back and that is not acceptable."
Bloody hell, if he realises eggs are unfertilised chicken fetuses he'll probably develop asthma. The block paver-turned-animal coroner is considering legal action according to the paper, but kidney or brain - both are edible. KFC could have been more generous by handing out free meals or a small amount of compensation since the food didn't reach the expected standards, but if sickly Humphries is angling for several day's pay in compensation, we'd say that's clucking madness.
