Secret Ingredient? Woman Says She Found Semen on KFC Chicken Sandwiches

(ANTIMEDIA) Manatee County, FL — A Florida woman got more than she bargained for at a recent visit to a Manatee County KFC restaurant. According to a police report filed on April 27, she purchased two KFC chicken sandwiches, but they turned out to be topped with what she claims was semen.

The police report doesn’t specify whether she consumed any of the food, but the sandwiches were handed over to police to be tested for bodily fluids.


According to Smoking Gun:

“The unidentified customer went to the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office and told officials there that she bought the sandwiches from a Bradenton restaurant.

“No arrests have been made in connection with the alleged food adulteration, which is ‘still under investigation,’ according to a sheriff’s spokesperson.”

Of course, it’s possible the woman in question fabricated her story in the hopes of receiving a monetary settlement. Indeed, fast food customers have been caught faking similar instances. However, the fact her story is even marginally believable highlights America’s problem with fast food.

Regardless of what really happened, Internet commenters were quick to joke about the incident, calling the semen KFC’s “12th secret ingredient” and saying the woman “should have known when she was offered the ‘jerked’ chicken.” However, tampering with food is no laughing matter — and is actually more common that many would think.
