According to the reports appeared on BBC, KFC has now revealed after investigation and lab tests that ‘rat’ was actually chicken.A KFC spokesperson said, “Recently in the US, a customer falsely claimed his KFC chicken was a rat, which received a huge amount of publicity given the unrealistic nature of his story.”
“The product was chicken and not a rat”, KFC confirmed officially after proper testing at an independent lab on Friday.
Meanwhile, Devorise said, when he tasted the meat, he found it “very hard and rubbery” before realising it was rat-shaped.
He then took the piece back to the KFC in Compton, California, where he had bought it and spoke to the manager, who confirmed to him it was a rat.
