Cassandra Perkins, 22, said she was at the fast food restaurant when she noticed it didn’t appear right.
She said after pulling it open, she discovered a “pink” thing that she thought “may have been brain,” the Metro reported.
“It looked disgusting and pink, I didn’t want to touch it,” she told the Northampton Chronicle. “I first thought that it may have been brain or lung, it certainly wasn’t chicken. My burger had a hair in it as well.”
She ordered a Zinger Tower meal and a piece of chicken for about $10 on Jan. 13.
“I certainly won’t be going back and probably won’t eat KFC again,” Perkins added.
KFC apologized for the mishap, saying, “We’re proud of the fact that our chicken is hand-prepared and cooked fresh in our kitchens.”

“Sometimes mistakes can happen and unfortunately on rare occasions, giblets are not removed when they should have been.”
“We have reminded our team members to take extra care in future, and if a customer is ever unhappy with their food we encourage them to let our team know, who will always be happy to help.”
Several months ago, a KFC customer claimed to have found a rat in his meal.

However, it turned out to be just chicken that looked like a rodent.
“Recently, a customer questioned the quality of a KFC product, and this received considerable publicity given the sensational nature of his claim,” KFC’s Rodrigo Coronel told FoxNews.com in June.
A customer posted a photo of the rat-like piece of chicken on Facebook before it went viral. KFC denied the man’s claims and did a DNA test.
“We did an internal investigation and talked to all employees. That statement is false,” Coronel added.
