Guy Finds Chicken Kidney in His KFC - vows to never eat there again.


Guy Finds Chicken Kidney in His KFC
Chain apologizes for 'unsightly' mix-up

(Newser) In case you needed a reason to cut down on fast food: A 19-year-old in the UK found what appeared to be a chicken brain in a piece of fried chicken, the Sun reports. But, hey, it's not so bad, because experts later determined it was probably just a kidney. Ibrahim Langoo complained to the company and, of course, took pictures of the unimaginable grossness, leading KFC to apologize for the "unsightly" 3-inch organ, explain it "was not removed in the preparation process," and offer him ... vouchers for free meals. But Langoo, not surprisingly, says he never wants to eat there again.

3. There is absolutely nothing wrong with eating one

although most people tend to pull them out because they are ugly suckers. In fact, if you've ever broken down a whole chicken, sometimes you find part of one next to the backbone, where it wasn't removed completely.

I can't believe this happened in the UK, where they eat beef, lamb and pork kidneys for breakfast.

5. if chicken producers manage to process MILLIONS of chickens a year...

...and only let the odd kidney slip through, that's pretty remarkable. It's harmless-- actually as nutritious as any other organ meat-- if a little unattractive. Finding one in a chicken meal should only be news because of its rarity, though. I think the guy is WAY too squeamish!

6. I've seen chicken kidneys before

because I've cooked chickens and they're inside chickens. It isn't so gross, at least I don't see why it's more icky than animal flesh.

It seems odd to me it would be so horrible to find a chicken part still in the chicken. It isn't like it's poisonous or foreign. It's just proof it used to be a living creature.

14. Chicken livers are pretty tasty.

Finding a chicken innard in the chicken at least shows it's REAL FOOD, for heaven's sake!

What a wimp!

8. KFCs around here used to sell fried gizzards and livers

Either mixed or separately.

Apparently they still do since they provide nutritional info for gizzards: http://fast-food-nutrition.findthebest.com/l/858/KFC-KFC-Gizzards

And they still have livers!

Why not kidneys? If properly prepared, I've heard they can be good.

9. Kidneys are unspeakable, but livers, gizzards and hearts aren't??

I've never had a chicken kidney, but love their other tasty blood filters. Not so much the gizzards and hearts, though - too chewy.

I'm in Stage 3 kidney failure ... I'm a bit too aware of what the kidneys (are supposed to) do

My god, if a chicken had a brain THAT big, he'd TELL you not to eat him!

21. +1. You've gone into a restaurant catering in chicken and manage to get... chicken.

At least the customer knows it really is CHICKEN!

People who are squeamish about kidneys puzzle me.

17. He understands it is a chicken, right?

Don't want it, chuck it. I don't eat organs and I eat chicken so I don't eat the organs from the chicken. Hell, I love thighs, it goes with the territory.

I can't believe they apologized, that is good customer relations.

26. That is NOT a kidney.

I can't say it's a brain, but it's NOT a kidney UNLESS the bird was extremely diseased, which is worse.

P.S. As I suspected, it IS a chicken kidney (diseased)... with moderate edema and congestion with urate retention.

Sent the pic to my bil on FB who has a doctorate in agriculture, working primarily with poultry. Basically, it's a diseased chicken kidney.

27. Yes. It IS a kidney, and no, it is not diseased.

It was battered and deep-fried in a pressure cooker. Of course, it's appearance is going to change. Half the thing was cooked away.

29. My dogs would have loved it

I feed them Chicken and Beef Hearts for dinner. They love them. We even give them kidneys and liver from time to time. I used to eat Chicken Livers all the time when I was a kid. Can't stand the taste of them now, but it is food of some sort.
