A 19-year old customer at a Yum! Brands’ (NYSE:YUM) KFC restaurant in the United Kingdom says he received a nasty surprise in his chicken dinner.
After digging into the Gladiator meal box, Ibrahim Langoo claims he spotted something that looked like a piece of brain in the meal. He snapped a picture of the revolting item with his cell phone’s camera, the Daily Mail noted.
When Langoo tried to complain about his unpleasant find, he says the staff was too busy to help him. He later posted the picture online. After that restaurant managers offered Langoo vouchers for free meals, but he says that after his discovery, he won’t be eating at KFC again.
KFC experts have identified the object that Langoo found in his meal as a piece of chicken kidney, not brains. While KFC officials said the restaurant chain tries to uphold the highest standards, they indicated that the kidney had somehow made it through the food preparation process.
The kidney did not pose a health risk, KFC said. A full investigation is ongoing.
