Bad luck for KFC again as redditor six6six4kids posted an image of a piece of meat that he described as green in colour and tasted like “death”. Based on previous incidents, the most recent case occurring in the UK, a kidney may have slipped into the batch that was delivered to this outlet.
While we have no idea as to which outlet this bad piece of chicken was served from, another redditor who claims to have worked at KFC, gave a pretty in-depth explanation as to how it may have happened.
Having worked at a KFC in my younger and more venerable years, I can tell you that this was likely intentional. In most of the KFC eateries the chicken arrives in individual bags by part of animal (frozen, and in some places fresh, though very few).
A cook would then take the pieces out in as a set. For instance, you may need to make a rack of chicken for the evening, so you would take out, say, 4 breasts, 4 thighs, 4 wings. Those would be washed, breaded, the wings would be broken and folded, and then laid on a steel rack to be deep-fried in a pressure deep fryer.
The entire process is rather systematic, so I would take a guess that one of two things happened here. It was either fully intentional, as a scumbag cook found the part accidentally in a bag and fried it for his sick teenage angst-type pleasure, or the cook in question was working well beyond his mental capacity.
Either way, you should bring this in, if only to make the store aware that this has happened. Let them know the time that you bought the meal. The chicken is not allowed to sit longer than a couple hours so they should have a good idea who cooked it.
Hope this helps. Also, never eat at a KFC they are very unsanitary, It has been well over 10 years since I have worked there, and I believe my shoes smelled of that place until the day I threw them out.
If it were me, I’d simply stop dining at this fine establishment given that these mix-ups are becoming too common.
