A fast food fan was definitely NOT ‘Lovin’ It’ yesterday after he tucked into a KFC takeaway meal and found what he claims to be a – chicken BRAIN.

KFC customer claims to have found chicken brain in meal

Sickened Barry Humphries, 32, pulled the skin off the bone on a piece in his meal deal and watched in horror as the organ fell out.

Self-employed blockpaver Barry, who bought the meal at Greenbridge Retail park in Swindon, Wilts., is now considering taking legal action against the company.

Barry said: ”I am absolutely horrified that this could happen. I used to love fast food but I will never eat chicken again. It is disgusting.

”It is clearly a chicken brain and no matter what anyone else says I know what I found.

”My stomach turned when I saw what it was. I always eat my chicken in the same way. I eat the skin then picking the meat off the bone and the organ just fell out.

”I had to take days off work because I was feeling so sick and I have lost earnings. The company have only offered to give me the cost of the meal back and that is not acceptable.”

A spokesman for the franchisee that operates KFC in Swindon said the organ was in fact a chicken kidney and apologised to Barry.

He said: ”We always try to ensure the highest standards in all of our stores. However, on this very rare occasion, the chicken was not fully trimmed prior to cooking.

”We have contacted our suppliers, who have identified the item as a kidney.

”While there was no health risk, we agree that this is unsightly, and have apologised to Mr Humphries and offered him a full refund.”

    Could have made his own pate. Very tasty with some garlic, breadcrumbs, cranberry sauce, pepper and chili.

    It’s the brown stuff that’s stuck inside the thigh bone. After cooking, sometimes it falls out. Many people love it and say it tastes like the chicken liver. Personally, I don’t like it and clean it out of my chickens before I cook them, but store bought chickens still have it.

    And if you really want to know what it is, it’s the kidney, totally edible and many consider a delicacy. It is definitely not a brain, but hey, everyone’s gotta make a living somehow, right?

    Ughhhhhh, I just found the same thing in my chicken. I’m not a chicken anatomist but…it does look like a frickin brain. The hills and valleys definitely look like a neocortex NOT a kidney…then again I’ve never really played with cooked organs.

    OMFG and to think some poor KFC worker is now walking our streets without a clue he has no brain official.

    Kidneys are smooth. I could see that being intestines or weirdly coagulated blood, but it is definitely not a kidney.
