Los Angeles, California – the Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) Corporation has confirmed that Devorise Dixon, 25, was not served a fried rat instead of a chicken tender. An attorney representing Dixon released the alleged piece of fried rat to an independent lab for testing and DNA results proved it was actually a chicken tender instead of a fried rat as Dixon claimed, according to Rodrigo Coronel, the KFC spokesman.
Dixon falsely claimed that he got served a fried rat as a chicken tender on June 11 at a KFC franchise located at 11864 Wilmington Ave. Dixon posted several photos and a video of a piece of chicken with the shape of a rat that he claimed was served to him. Dixon had not been very cooperative in releasing the questionable food item that went viral on the social network to an independent lab to get it tested. His attorney got the item from Dixon and had it tested and it came negative for being a fried rat. KFC offered to pay for the lab test.
KFC now wants for Dixon to stop making false claims and to apologize.
