We’ve heard plenty of stories of people encountering grody, nasty and unsavory items in their fast food. Yes, that’s true. But honestly, everyone? Cross our hearts and swear to die, stick a needle in our eyes, the story of a man in England finding what appears to be a chicken brain in his KFC is one of the absolutely most disgusting, stomach-turning things we have ever had the misfortune to see.

Flying Fried: Japan Airlines To Start Serving KFC On Certain U.S., European Flights

Full disclosure: We’ve never tried the in-flight fare aboard a Japan Airlines flight, but if it’s anything like the numerous other meals we’ve ingested in midair, it probably clocks in at somewhere around sub-par. So the fact that the airlines will start serving KFC to passengers on certain flights starting next week makes us unsure if travelers will be getting an upgrade or just staying somewhere in the “meh” food category.

KFC Franchise Exec On Rotten Chicken Allegations: We Had Some Expired Meat But I'm Not Saying We Cooked It

Back in April we reported on a lawsuit brought by a KFC manager in Oregon alleging that he was fired by a franchisee for refusing to serve rotten chicken, and instead throwing it out past its expiration date. In another case involving former employees crying foul fowl, Texas health officials found no evidence that chicken past its “kill date” was served to customers, even if the franchise’s owner says such expired meat has been on the premises.

KFC Serves Up Nasty Pot Pie, Doesn't Even Send Me Coupons

KFC Serves Up Nasty Pot Pie, Doesn't Even Send Me Coupons

Derek didn’t expect all that much from KFC. He picked up a chicken pot pie for a lunch treat, and brought it back to work. He found that it had what he calls “an extremely strong chemical smell and taste,” and wasn’t about to eat the pie. He’s not upset about the foul-tasting pot pie: he got on with his life. What he finds disappointing is that he reported it to KFC using the form on their web site, then called them on the phone, and received no response. Why bother having a form at all? Why bother having a customer service number if all the representatives are authorized to do is shrug? [More]

Looks like a normal chicken burger, no? But wait, what’s that orange blanket atop the bun? [More]

The fast food chain has been ordered to pay $8.3 million to the Australian girl’s family after she suffered severe brain damage after being poisoned by a “Twister” wrap from KFC in 2005. [More]

KFC Thailand: Sorry We Told You To Order Chicken During Tsunami Scare

User-Generated KFC Ad More Likely To Inspire Serial Killers Than Sales

User-Generated KFC Ad More Likely To Inspire Serial Killers Than Sales

I kind of love this very unofficial ad for KFC made by comedian Peter Serafinowicz. It juxtaposes a loop of a 70’s father cutting a chicken for his family with a staticy voiceover instructing how to serve a chicken. An ominous drone pulses underneath. At the end you feel like you’ve just witnessed the mental filmstrip of a serial killer right before he creatively dismembers his latest victim. Pass the mashed potatoes! [More]
