A woman has told of her disgust after she bit into what she thought was chicken at a KFC branch in Wellingborough - only to find what appeared to be giblets.

Cassandra Perkins went to the outlet in Turnell Mills Lane last week and bought a piece of chicken.

She noticed the meat didn’t look right so pulled it apart, and she says her initial thoughts were that “it may have been brain”.

Miss Perkins said: “I thought it looked off so pulled it open and just said ‘look at that’ and poked it with a straw.

“It looked disgusting and pink, I didn’t want to touch it.

“I first thought that it may have been brain or lung, it certainly wasn’t chicken.

“My burger had a hair in it as well.

“I complained and the staff just offered to swap it for a new piece of chicken but there was no way I wanted anything coming out of that store.

“I certainly won’t be going back and probably won’t eat KFC again.”

KFC has since apologised for the incident.

A spokesman for KFC said: “We’re proud of the fact that our chicken is hand-prepared and cooked fresh in our kitchens.

“Sometimes mistakes can happen and unfortunately on rare occasions, giblets are not removed when they should have been.

“We have reminded our team members to take extra care in future, and if a customer is ever unhappy with their food we encourage them to let our team know, who will always be happy to help.”
