After ordering a three-piece chicken tender meal from a Wilmington, California, KFC, Devorise Dixon noticed there was something off about one of his tenders. He posted the below photos to Facebook claiming that when he bit into one of the pieces "it was very hard and rubbery which made me look at it. As I looked down at it I noticed that it was was in a shape of a rat with a tail."
Though Dixon's first reaction was to seal the rat-chicken in a bag and put in in his freezer, he went back to the same KFC two days later. Apparently, a manager then confirmed to him that he'd indeed been served fried rat. Someone posted Dixon's photos to the official KFC Facebook page and got the following response: "We take all customer claims very seriously. We are looking into these allegations to ensure this matter is resolved as soon as possible."
Since then, KFC has been answering customer questions about the rat-chicken on all of its social media pages, tweeting that their official investigation did not yield rat-positive results.
