- Marc Nicholls reportedly ordered a three-piece box, containing two wings and a chicken breast
- A bite at the chicken breast turned out to be what appeared to be a lung.
- A KFC spokesperson admits that what Mr. Nicholls saw is a vital organ of the chicken
A meal bought from Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) by Mr. Marc Nicholls turned out to be a lung instead of the usual chicken breast KFC is noted for.
Narrating the incident, Mr Nicholls who hails from Australia’s Gold Coast noted that he had gone to KFC on his day off and ordered a three-piece box, containing two wings and a chicken breast.
Mr.Nicholls added that he left repulsed after he realised that what was contained in the KFC bread crumbs was no chicken breast – but what appeared to be a lung.
‘It was disgusting,’ Mr Nicholls, 30, told the Daily Mail Australia. 'It was absolutely vile.I pulled a piece off, then found that and spat the rest out,’ he told Mail Online.
The IT technician said he alerted staff, who told him it could be a lung. Despite this, he was not even offered a refund, but simply told he should contact customer service.
A KFC spokesman said the offending ‘meat’ was most likely a chicken lung or kidney that had been missed during preparation.
'Most of the time, offal is removed in the preparation process, but occasionally it may remain,’ a KFC spokesman said after the Australian lung incident, adding it posed no health risk.
This comes after a woman in Wellingborough, Northamptonshire, found out that her KFC meal contained raw giblets. She says when she noticed flecks of purple on her chicken Zinger and pulled it apart to find uncooked entrails.
Mr. Nicholls whose lunch turned sour has vowed never go to KFC again, warning: 'when you’re eating junk food, you’re actually getting junk.’
Meanwhile, in New Zealand, Sarah-Jane Williams found fly larvae inside the fried batter.
