It's A Brain? It's A Kidney? It's KFC's Next PR Nightmare

Tyler Durden's picture

As if Yum Brands were not suffering enough this morning - as they forecast China comp sales to drop 6% (more than the forecast 4% decline), it seems the UK has their next PR disaster waiting to happen, courtesy of their KFC brand. After a 19-year-old Brit found a "horrible wrinkled foreign body" in his fried chicken meal, KFC has apologized (rather magnanimously) saying "while there was no health risk, we agree it was unsightly." Judge for yourself just how puke-worthy and generally emotionally scarred you would have been after biting into this 'brain-looking' image. KFC clarifies: "Although we haven't received the product, it appears from a photograph that unfortunately on this occasion a kidney, and not a brain as claimed, was not removed in the preparation process." Oh, just a kidney? Pass the salt then.

That is fucking repulsive.

If i has bitten into this i would have become a vegan (from a red meat eating canadian) immediately.

Oh heck.. can you imagine an American, or anyone for that mater 100 years ago going apoplectic because chicken parts got mixed up a bit in a meal?

It wasn’t like a loaded intestine got deep fried..

or somebody put petroleum products in the Twinkies.

And in France it's called "Nouveau Cuisine" and will set you back €500 for 1 serving!

On the bright side, it would appear that KFC is actually serving Chicken.

Waste no -- want not.  Must use EVERY part of the carcass to its fullest. 

The American Indians would eat the heart of the buffalo while the body was still warm to increase their virility.

Nah, i know what that is... a lot of maggots were eating away at chicken and they threw it in the fry so they became crispy maggots. Finger licking good.

Maybe they were just trialing an attempt at fast-food haggis.

This is why I stick to McDonalds.  I can spot a toe posing as a chicken nugget quicker than a fontal lobe concealed in my breast.

What animal is the kidney from?  That's what should be of concern here.

I can't even leave that picture on my screen.

Whatever. If you fried your toe, you'd think it tastes like chicken.

I would actually look at your food before you shovel it into your face.

Thats irony for you. British food is the equivalent of everything the asians won't eat, and they STILL think this is gross.

I'll have the #4 with some Fava Beans and a nice Chianti on the side!

Is that a "Big Kahuna Burger?"

Would you like a Sprite with that?

This is why we all need iPhones.

This is why it's best to prepare your own food.

Are you trying to put fast food workers out of a good union job? The poor union bosses will starve

Seasmoke's picture

Make Piers Morgan eat it. Fucking no good Brits.

eating fast food only makes you shit your brains out.  Thats all its good for.  And for a good hangover cure.

Looks like their new Deep Fried Kidney Pie accidently made it out of the UK test kitchen.

YUM raised their prices significantly for this sub standard fried garbage. 

It's about time people boycott these places.

Looks like great catfishing bait!

The only thing worse than finding a kidney in your fried chicken is finding half a kidney in your fried chicken.

When I worked at KFC. These are the pieces we kept for the cops. Those fat fuckers never came back to complain.
