The first gross item in food that we stumbled across this year comes from a 19-year-old student in the United Kingdom.
Ibrahim Langoo found a 'wrinkled brain inside a piece of KFC chicken at Essex, reported The Sun.
Langoo was attempting to pull the chicken meat from the bone when he found a "horrible winkled body" inside.
"I threw it down onto my tray immediately. It looked like a brain. I suddenly felt grim and really sick. I couldn't bring myself to pick the lump up so I went to the serving counter to complain.
"It was about 1pm and pretty hectic in the restaurant and as it was so busy none of the staff helped me," said Langoo.
He then complained online and KFC responded with an apology and vouchers for free meals.
Reports state that KFC officials determined that the wrinkled meat matter was in fact a kidney, not a piece of brain.
A KFC spokesperson described the product as "unsightly" but stressed that it posed no health risk.
After the gross encounter, Langoo says that he "never want[s] to eat KFC again."
