A Queensland woman was horrified to find a deep-fried bug nestled under the coating of a chicken wing she purchased from her local KFC store.
Rosie told Yahoo7 she purchased the contaminated chicken wings from the drive-through at KFC Caboolture City, north of Brisbane, on Saturday.
She said while she ordinarily doesn’t eat take-away food, on this particular occasion she decided to treat the family to KFC given that her relatives were in town.
A Queensland woman was horrified to find a deep-fried bug nestled under the coating of a chicken wing she allegedly purchased from her local KFC store.
Rosie, from Caboolture in Queensland, said she was horrified to find what appeared to be a deep-fried fly embedded in one of her Wicked Wings.
When she returned home with a box of southern fried chicken, Rosie said she was horrified to find what appeared to be a deep-fried fly embedded in one of the wings.
‘I was about to bite into this Wicked Wing when I scanned down and saw it only seconds before I bit into it,’ Rosie said.
‘It must have been cooked into it, because the bug was underneath the coating, so I’m imagining that bug got deep-fried.’
She contacted KFC immediately to let them know about her unexpected find, but claimed she was met with a less than satisfactory response.
Rosie said the person she spoke to allegedly only offered her a replacement meal for her next visit.
She said she wasn’t even given an explanation as to how the bug could have ended up in the chicken.

‘I was horrified, to be honest. That was the most disgusting thing, finding that in my meal, and that was a pretty ordinary response,’ she said.
Rosie said while it’s understandable that someone’s hair might end up in food if they aren’t wearing a hair net, there’s never any excuse for finding bugs in your food.
In a statement provided to the publication, KFC said it was aware of the incident, had apologised and offered Rosie a replacement meal on the night.
The fast food giant also stated they take all complaints seriously and are currently investigating with the store to find out what may have caused it.
