LOS ANGELES — One Kentucky Fried Chicken customer claims he was served a deep-fried rat.

California security guard Devorise Dixon claims he bought a three-piece box of chicken tenders at a KFC restaurant in Los Angeles.   Dixon posted photos on his Facebook page, and they have since been shared more than 120,000 times.

“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,” he told the Randy Economy Radio Show.

According to CNN, Dixon 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.”

Dixon declined the free meal, and says he’s getting a lawyer.

KFC told CNN: “Our chicken tenders often vary in size and shape, and we currently have no evidence to support Dixon’s claim.”
