It’s something you joke about but don’t ever think will happen. You go to a restaurant and get served what looks like a deep-fried rat. At least that’s one customer’s story.

California Security Guard Devorise Dixon says he bought a 3-piece box of tenders at a KFC in Los Angeles. On the randy economy radio show, he described taking a bite. “It was very nasty. I spit it out. I looked down at my hand and I realized that it was in the shape of a rat with a tail and everything in it.”

Dixon posted photos on his Facebook page and he put the tender in the freezer. He says he returned to the restaurant with photos and his receipt.

“The manager actually freaked out, confirmed that it was a rat. She apologized for it. They actually just offered me a free meal.”

Which he declined. He says he’s lawyering up.

KFC says, “our chicken tenders often vary in size and shape. And we currently have no evidence to support Dixon’s claim.”

The unanswered question is what’s lurking under the breading?

KFC tells CNN “We have made various attempts to contact him but he is refusing to either talk to us personally or through a lawyer. Nor has he come forth with the chicken piece in question for verification” which kfc offered to have done free of charge at an independent lab.”

Dixon claims that single bite affected his appetite.

He says he felt nauseous and woozy and couldn’t eat.
