DNA results confirm origin of KFC rat-shaped nugget

DNA tests confirm rat-shaped nugget is chicken.


(CNN) – A chicken-fried controversy now seems to be settled. KFC now wants a customer to apologize for claims he made last week, suggesting his chicken tender was actually a rat.

The chicken that looked like a Kentucky fried rat turns out to be chicken.

The customer last week gave KFC a verbal licking for selling him finger-licking good chicken in the shape of a rat saying, “It was very nasty. I spit it out,” he said.

But KFC smelled a rat and insisted this was just an oddly-shaped chicken tender.

The chain fought back with a photo of the reverse side of the tender, which sure looked like white meat chicken.

Though CNN was never able to get in touch with the customer, Devorise Dixon had said that a single bite made him feel “nauseous, woozy, I can’t eat.”

But Dixon’s lawyer finally agreed to send the tender to an independent lab, which KFC now says has officially determined it’s chicken.

So now, Dixon is left eating his words.
