New Delhi: A woman has claimed that she was allegedly served a deep fried rat’s head by Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen, an American multinational chain of fried chicken fast food restaurants in New Jersey.
Rosemary Thomas, a resident of Clifton Park on Sunday posted a picture of a meal on Facebook, claiming she was served a rat head amidst pieces of fried chicken.
“This is clearly a rat and they have the nerve to have a 5 rating by the Department of Health,” she wrote.
“Friends and family, this is a meal Popeyes in Harlem served my daughter, my niece and sister. This is clearly a rat and they have the nerve to have a 5 rating by the department of health. I've sent this picture to DESK@NY1 and no one has contacted me. People please free to share this picture. Think about all the other rat that have been served and the lasting effect this will have on my daughter, niece and sister. The exact address is 2730 Frederick Douglas Blvd.” (sic)
Thomas also wrote on Facebook that she had to take her daughter to an urgent care clininc because the food made her daughter sick.
“Yesterday, she ate nothing all day,” Thomas wrote. “All she said she could think of was the rat head after she consumed the crispy part.”
