A KFC customer claimed to have found a deep fried RAT in his takeaway.
Stunned Devorise Dixon said he was tucking into a box meal in Wilmington, California, when he spotted a 'tail' on what he at first thought was a strangely-shaped breaded chicken breast.
Upon closer inspection, he said this turned out to be a deep fried rat.
KFC bosses told the Mirror an investigation found no evidence to support this claim - but did not confirm what the piece of food was.
Devorise uploaded several pictures and a video of the supposed rodent on Facebook, before sealing it in a bag and putting it in the freezer.
He wrote that he went back to the store on Wednesday, June 10, and complained to the manager.
Alongside the pictures, Devorise wrote: "As I bit into it I noticed that it was very hard and rubbery which made me look at it. As I looked down at it I noticed that it was was in a shape of a rat with a tail.
