There’s nothing better than finding an extra wing or breast in your box of fried chicken. Unfortunately for one New York woman, the extra protein that popped up in her meal wasn’t exactly a pleasant surprise.
It was a rat’s head.
Rosemary Thomas of Clifton Park, New York shared photos on Facebook, claiming she found a rat’s head in hear meal from a Popeye’s in Harlem.
Apparently people feel very strongly about the idea of a rat head in their fried food. Rosemary’s Facebook post has been shared more than 150,000 times.
A Popeyes spokesperson told The Huffington Post that they’ve reached out to Rosemary to figure out what happened and that think what she saw was probably chicken organ meat.
“We’ve checked with suppliers and they feel it is most likely chicken organ meat. We will work with the guest to recover the product and test it to confirm that,” the Popeyes rep told The Huffington Post.
