KFC Customer's Disgusting Photo of Chicken Brain — or Kidney — Goes Viral
Demonstrating the power of one disgusted customer, a U.K. teen's photo of either a brain or a kidney within his KFC meal has gone viral and prompted the chain to apologize.
Ibrahim Langoo, 19, posted the photo below on his Facebook account last month. Langoo came across the item at a KFC in Colchester, England. The â€œI just wanted to get out of KFC as quickly as I could. I still feel really sick and disgusted by it all now,â€ Langoo told The Sun. "I threw it down onto my tray immediately. It looked like a brain. I suddenly felt grim and really sick."
A KFC rep told The Sun report Langoo's Facebook photo has now been seen all over the world, likely undoing millions of dollars in KFC advertising.

Does this mean the Corporations are starting to lose their vice like grip on power over people? Hopefully?

Simply some mishandling at the processing plant....

I'm probably the wrong person to say this, but the picture isn't as vile as you think.
I mean, it will keep me from KFC for a very, very long time, and it's certainly not something I'd want to see in my bucket o' chicken, but it wouldn't scar someone for life.
Although, I don't know why they're saying it's a kidney. I've never seen a bird kidney, but I don't imagine they're that different from ours.
Of course, had this happened in the US, the kid would already be suing.

They should mince and bleach their chicken, like McDonald's, then nobody could tell.

I guess it means (R1) that food prep lapses that can lead to a really gross photo on Facebook, can have a huge impact. But this tactic doesn't work as well with something less photogenic (but more deadly) like e.coli or salmonella poisoning.

Exactly R6. If people saw in detail how McNuggets were made, they'd vomit and never eat one again.

This is probably a hoax. Remember the finger in the soda can? I have personally seen people pulling the "roach in the food" scam at restaurants to get out of paying their check, and more than once, I might add. At one place, when they went to get the manager, she recognized that the same people had pulled the same stunt just a few days previously. They thought they could get away with it again because they did not see anyone to recognize them until the waitress went to get the manager. She called the cops and was planning to press charges against them, and they ran out instead of waiting for the cops.

Who eats fast food anyway? I just don't get, I never have. Disgusting.

Most, if not all, of our processed foods are disgusting. Processed foods are processed so that we won't know what we're eating. Most, if not all, fast food consumers wolf down their "meal" so quickly that they don't take the time to attempt to identify what they're putting into their mouths. In that commercial that I've seen dozens of times, this mcnugget is delicious - who am I to argue? And it's such a great value, too!

Think about how small a chicken brain is.

It was a chicken kidney and it was fully cooked. It's not like it would hurt you.
In fact at Brown's Chicken you can buy the giblets which are chicken hears, chicken livers, and other assorted organ meats.
A lot of old people and East Europeans love them.

Since I live on a very tight budget I can't afford to eat at fast food restaurants. I cook all my meals at home and put the leftovers in the fridge or freezer. I lost a great deal of weight from that (adding to the weight I lost from no longer drinking soft drinks like Coca-Cola).
Pictures and threads like this make me happy that I don't miss out much by not eating KFC and pink slimed Chicken McNuggets.

R10, right, you've NEVER eaten fast food... therefore nobody else must either. Those billions served every year must be figments of everyone's collective imaginations. Well, except yours, because apparently you have no imagination at all.
Seriously, you ask "who eats fast food"?!?
You're a fucking moron.

It is a kidney -- and it's happened before at KFC! And I don't think it's that gross.

R15 chill the heck down. Who are you the jester to fast food queen? Not everybody in the world eats Mickey Ds day in day out. People outside of America actually eat real food and are thin to boot. Go enjoy your junk food and wash out your mouth with soap you silly bitter little thing!

I really don't know what people that eat at places like KFC expect. Moreover, I think it's bizarre when you gorge the meat of a dead animal but then you are totally disgusted by other parts like organs.
And intensive animal husbandry is of course not disgusting? Did he ever in his life waste a thought on that?

Thank you! It's a weird combination of idiocy and hypocrisy.

Processing error. Gross, but no grosser than buying your own meat with a tumor or random undesirable biological parts in it (which can happen from time to time). In the 50s, my grandma bought a chicken that was apparently pregnant and not cleaned out all the way. Foreign objects and any type of excrement are way more unforgivable.

There was part of a pit my supposedly pitted olives, and now I'm going to sue the olive company for my psychological distress.

Maybe KFC is trying to get on board with the whole head-to-tail trend.
Seriously: where do meat-eaters think meat comes from?
If you can eat the muscles of an animal from a fast-food factory-farming shithole, I don't know why they're grossed out by this.

The photo didn't undo their advertising. A f#*€Ing brain did.
