Another year, another Mealbreaker. The first certifiably gross item we've heard about this year comes courtesy of Ibrahim Langoo, a 19-year-old student who found what he described as a "wrinkled brain" inside a fried piece KFC chicken at a location in Colchester, Essex in the U.K.

According to the Sun, Langoo was attempting to pull the chicken meal from the bone when he found a "horrible wrinkled body" inside:

“I threw it down onto my tray immediately. It looked like a brain. I suddenly felt grim and really sick. I couldn’t bring myself to pick the lump up so I went to the serving counter to complain. It was about 1pm and pretty hectic in the restaurant and as it was so busy none of the staff helped me.”

Langoo later complained online, and KFC responded with an apology and vouchers for free meals. KFC officials also determined that the organ was in fact a kidney, not a piece of brain.

A KFC spokesperson described the product as "unsightly," but stressed that it posed no health risk.

Vouchers or not, the incident has been understandably traumatizing for Langoo, who now says that he "never want[s] to eat KFC again." :huh:

Article says kidney, you titled it brain? :huh:

Any-who, that is disgusting. Not sure I'd be able to eat there again after that as well... But that hasn't happened to me yet and I love their crispy skins. Must figure out that recipe!

Makes me feel sick, and why would a kidney look like a brain?

Last time I heard about KFC it was a puss filled cyst on the chicken piece

the vouchers would not have done me any good as after that i most likely would not eat at their restaurants again. Then again. I honestly cannot say the last time i have had food from them.

The thing about burger joints is that they have the luxury of grinding everything down into a patty so no matter what it is, it is gonna look like a patty.

I don't see how the restaurant is at fault. Either the chicken arrives pre-cut or it is cut on site. There's no way to visually verify what is actually within each section (or not) without shredding it up.

This could happen anywhere - including at home.
