Devorise Dixon said he spotted a 'tail' in a strangely shaped chicken bread which he purchased from the California outlet of the fast food chain. He said when he made a closer inspection, it turned out to be a fried rat.

The disturbed customer has also posted the pictures on Facebook which sparked off a wide-spread debate.

Dixon also claimed that he went back to the outlet and the manager, on realizing that it was a rat, apologised to him.

His Facebook post reads: "It sent deep chills throughout my whole body! I’ve been feeling weird ever since. It's time for a lawyer, be safe don't eat fast food!" He has also posted a video on the social networking site.

It's not immediately known that whether Dixon has filed a case against the company.



However, The Mirror, a UK based newspaper quoted KFC officials as saying an investigation into the issue found no evidence to support the customers claims.

'Food safety is our highest priority worldwide and we take allegations of this nature extremely seriously,' a KFC spokesperson told the paper.

In reply to the facebook post KFC wrote: “KFC has made various attempts to contact this customer, but he is refusing to talk to us directly or through an attorney. Our chicken tenders often vary in size and shape, and we currently have no evidence to support this allegation. We have extended the opportunity to have an independent lab evaluate the product at our own expense, but the customer refuses to provide the product in question.”
