LOS ANGELES — A fast food chain is takin’ a lickin’ for its finger lickin’ good chicken shaped like a rat.

California security guard Devorise Dixon says he bought a three-piece box of tenders at a KFC in Los Angeles, but it was not what he was expecting.

He then went on the Randy Economy Radio Show to describe taking a bite.

“It was very nasty,” Dixon said. “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.”

Dixon posted photos on his Facebook page and he put the tender in the freezer.

He said he returned to the restaurant with photos and his receipt.

“The manager actually freaked out, confirmed that it was a rat,” Dixon said. “She apologized for it. They actually just offered me a free meal,” which Dixon said he declined.

Dixon said he’s getting a lawyer but shape alone is not enough to prove a chicken tender guilty of being a breaded rat.

KFC said “our chicken tenders often vary in size and shape and we currently have no evidence to support Dixon’s claim.”

KFC added: “We have made various attempts to contact him, but he is refusing to either talk to us personally or through a lawyer. Nor has he come forth with the chicken piece in question for verification” which KFC offered to have done free of charge at an independent lab.

Dixon claims the bite affected his appetite.

“Nauseous, woozy I can’t eat,” Dixon said.
