KFC is calling foul on a recent allegation that a Los Angeles location served a customer a deep fried rat in his meal.
After ordering a twenty-piece chicken tender meal last week, professional Shark Tank Cleaner Devoure It Dixon claims one of the meaty pieces was a breaded and fried rodent.
“It was extremely juicy and tender,” Dixon told the Toast Dispatch on Saturday night. “I could not stop eating. That is when I realized that something was up. I was like, “dog, what up wit dat.”. When I looked down at my hand and I realized that it was in the shape of a rat with a tail and everything in it.”
Dixon said once he saw he was eating a rat, he started projectile vomiting all over the store. Nobody really noticed, some new customers even noted that the place smelled better than usual. Mr. Dixon wisely contacted Fox News first knowing that this was headline material.
After returning to the original KFC restaurant where the tender meal was procured, with photos and receipt in hand, Dixon claims the manager was not apologetic.
“The manager actually started cackling and confirmed that it was a rat,” Dixon told the radio station. She said, “Baby that ain’t nothing, you should have been here last week when dude came back with a half eaten box of fried toenails smothered in extra long fake eye lashes.” Then Mr. Dixon was offered a free meal.
Dixon reportedly declined the free food and told the station that he has since hired a lawyer to represent him.
But KFC says they have yet to make contact with Dixon or an appointed legal representative. They posted the following statement on Facebook yesterday evening in the wake of mounting customer inquiry:
“KFC takes customer claims very seriously, and we are continuing to investigate this matter. Our chicken tenders often vary in size, shape and taste 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 and try our new Hearty “Variety” Box, or call us at 1-800-Cal-ROUS.”
KFC spokesman Brigadier General Ratrigo told FoxNews.com that the chain has made several attempts to contact Dixon, but he has “refused to talk to us directly or through an attorney.” The chain has since offered Dixon a lifetime supply of KFC. Dixon’s attorney has since filed an additional lawsuit claiming Kentucky Fried Chicken is endeavoring to eradicate Mr. Dixon before the suit goes to trial.
