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:

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.

This. I mean really? This is that upsetting to you guys? I see it as yet another example of how soft people have become. It's a piece of scrap that accidentally got sorted incorrectly. As the article states, it's a kidney and not harmful. That's what happens when you mass process food as fast as possible. Don't go to a fast food place, and you probably will be far less likely to see mistakes like these. But really, you're ok with the fact that the meat is already a dead animal, but when a piece of kidney accidentally gets chopped in then all the sudden you're sick and that's where you draw the line? Seems kind of silly to me. Even one generation ago it was far more common for people to go hunting for food. Then you get to cut open the animal and rip all these parts out yourself. Do that a couple of times and I bet a little piece of kidney wouldn't bother you so much.

I was just about to post this ^. It's a freebie included with the chicken they don't normally get and they complained?

They're eating a deep fried animal off the bone.. how can they be disgusted by 'brains' or any other extra part of the body.. maybe they assumed it was some kid's brain or something. Goes to show that they have NO clue at all what they're eating if they think that's where the brain is. Have they even seen a chicken's head before?

Seriously, they need to start giving proper schooling where they cut animals up for the kids so kids know what the they're eating before we get too scared to look at anything uncooked, unprocessed and not pre-packed.

Used to have dissection in more classrooms.

But it would be better if people just learned to prepare their own food from scratch, and involved their kids in the kitchen, show them the giblets. Use them, instead of throwing them away. Chopped liver is good.

Ha, thank you, voice of reason! I logged in from this other computer just so I could say something like this, but then I saw your reply. I mean damn, people eat chicken liver all the time, is the kidney really that much different? I don't like liver but I'm not going to throw a hissy fit if I get one by mistake. It's a part that accidentally didn't get tossed out, who cares. Man, people are wimps these days.
