Did KFC Serve A Deep Fried Rat?

Earlier this month, a California man claimed that KFC served him a deep fried rat!

Well, after much denying, the US fast food company finally DNA tested the alleged rodent.

Last week, KFC was forced to confront a customer's accusations that he'd been served a fried rat in a three-piece meal at a Los Angeles store. But was it as finger-licking bad as he made out?

Devorise Dixon, 25, posted a photo of a nasty-looking entree to Facebook after he bit into it and something didn't seem right, reports the Huffington Post.

He said the piece of food had a rubbery texture, and that a store manager told him it was a rat.

Lab tests

KFC was quick to counter Dixon's claims. The company said he hadn't responded to requests to have the meal tested by a lab and wasn't cooperating with an investigation.

The company also said that a photo from Dixon's Instagram feed, which shows the morsel from a different angle, made it clear that the food was chicken (not rodent).

KFC now says it's got the science to back up its counter claim. Spokesman Rodrigo Coronel said that Dixon's attorney obtained the specimen and turned it over for testing at an independent lab. Those tests confirmed that the chicken tender was made of chicken.

Coronel also alleged that Dixon lied about being told the piece of chicken was a rat. Coronel said the company is "reviewing all options" when it comes to any potential legal action against Dixon.
