LOS ANGELES — When Devorise Dixon went to KFC and ordered a three-piece meal, he had no idea he’d be biting into something that didn’t quite taste like chicken.
Dixon found a peculiarly-shaped piece of food that he claims is a deep-fried rat, posting the pictures on Facebook along with this video.
Along with one of the photos, Dixon wrote, “Went back to KFC yesterday and spoke to the manager she said it is a rat and apologized, it’s time for a lawyer!!! Be safe don’t eat fast food!!!”
KFC responded to the incident on Facebook , saying that they take customer claims very seriously and are investigating the incident.
“KFC takes customer claims very seriously, and we are continuing to investigate this matter. Our chicken tenders often vary in size and shape, and we currently have no evidence to support this claim. We are aggressively trying to reach Mr. Dixon, and we request that he return to the restaurant with the product for testing, or call us at 1-800-Call-KFC.”
The images and story have since gone viral.
