How would you feel if you suddenly felt a foreign object from the food you’re eating in a restaurant? Chances are you’ll throw it up and investigate what is that thing on your food.
This was what happened to Ibrahim Langoo, a 19-year-old musical theater student at Colchester Institute in UK, while eating a chicken in a KFC fastfood restaurant.
Langoo was eating a Gladiator box meal in a KFC store located in Colchester, Essex in the U.K. when suddenly he found in what he described to be a ‘wrinkled brain’ when pulling his chicken meal from the bone.
He immediately went to the serving counter and complained about it. However, he was not given assistance by any of the staffs as they are all busy during that day.
“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,” he said.
“I just wanted to get out of KFC as quickly as I could. I still feel really sick and disgusted by it all now,” he added.
Without initial help from the staffs of the restaurant, Langoo took a picture of his KFC chicken meal using his mobile phone and brought the matter online at Facebook. The photo was shared by many and soon after, it reached the attention of KFC.
KFC asked for apology and gave Langoo a free meal voucher in response. They also determined that the foreign object so-called as ‘wrinkled brain’ was not actually a brain but a kidney.
Despite being given free meals, Langoo vehemently said that he will never eat at any KFC ever again.
“I never want to eat KFC again – in Colchester or anywhere else. I’ll eat chicken at home, where I can see how it’s been prepared,” he said.
