'Not finger lickin' good': Customers left 'vomiting', 'crying in pain' after eating from 'terrible' KFC
BRIXHAM, DEVON: A KFC in UK is proving their tagline "Finger Lickin' Good" wrong. Customers at the "worst KFC in Britain" have sworn never to eat at the fast-food restaurant again after being left "vomiting every five minutes and crying in pain."
The popular fast food brand’s branch on Brixham Road in Devon has a whopping 216 reviews online, rating it as 'terrible', which makes it the lowest ranked out of more than 900 KFCs throughout the UK. Customers claimed it gave them food poisoning, complained of slow service and poor hygiene, according to The Daily Star.
Among the reviews, one customer wrote on Tripadvisor, "Considering KFC only sell chicken, I think it is pathetic how they can run out of chicken during the day. This is like going to a swimming pool which has no water." Another furious customer claimed their chicken was "undercooked" and said, "This has practically made me paralysed. I spent the first day and night vomiting every five minutes. And crying in pain. Then tossed and turned unable to sleep. I have been trying desperately hard to eat over the past few days but have been unable to do so. It is physically difficult to breath. I don’t think I’ll EVER be having a KFC again."
Someone else added, "(My) order was wrong and we were called liars for telling them. I actually saw a staff member spit on the floor while serving me thru the drive thru hatch." A fourth seething customer said the "stench" of the toilets was "disgusting". "My hands were cleaner before I went in," the customer claimed.
A KFC spokesperson told DevonLive, “The Colonel is passionate about his food always being finger lickin’ good, so we’re sorry to see these reviews. The restaurant has a good hygiene rating and the management team are working hard to improve reviews."
This is not the first KFC in UK to be called out for its filthy standards. An outlet in Wales also received complaints about the poor service and hygiene of the restaurant when a customer claimed that she discovered a "caterpillar" doing a "little dance" on her fried chicken on ordering from KFC in Ebbw Vale in Wales.
Jody Bishop and her partner had each ordered a meal for one, containing two pieces of fried chicken, two hot wings and two fillets. As they were enjoying their order, she spotted something small and dark "doing a little dance" on the hot wing she had already bitten a chunk out of. The pair described the little insect as a caterpillar. It was wriggling on the plate. The discovery stunned the couple and they stopped eating. They said that they were feeling "physically sick."
