Welp, It Certainly Looks Like This Lady Found A Rat Head In Her Popeyes Chicken

Another day, another unsavory finding in a fast food meal. I’ve yet to find anything in my late night fast food feasts, including my self-respect, but the road is lovely, dark and deep. And miles to go before I sleep. And miles to go before I sleep.

A New York lady named Rosemary Thomas stormed onto social media after she allegedly found a rat’s head in her Popeye’s chicken while dining with her sister, daughter and niece.

“This is clearly a rat and they have the nerve to have a 5 rating by the department of health,” she wrote in the Facebook post.

“My daughter is traumatized. I had to take her to urgent care last night, vomited with diarrhea all day.” (via)

According to DNA Info,

The Harlem fried chicken chain was last inspected on April 21, 2016 and received an “A” grade.

But the year before, inspectors wrote that the facility was “not vermin proof” and has “harborage or conditions conducive to attracting vermin to the premises and/or allowing vermin to exist,” according to the DOH’s website.

Thomas is expected to bring her rat chicken into the restaurant today to meet with the franchise owner and test it.

Matt’s love of writing was born during a sixth grade assembly when it was announced that his essay titled “Why Drugs Are Bad” had taken first prize in D.A.R.E.’s grade-wide contest. The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
