Man says KFC burger looked ‘battered’ and had hair everywhere

A dad has branded KFC “disgusting” after his meal had “hairs everywhere” and he was forced to throw his whole meal in the bin.

Barry Cox, 45, was left horrified by the Monday night delivery that cost him £35.

The dad-of-two claims his meal was “battered” and covered in hairs, meaning he immediately “threw it straight in the bin”.

He’s since shared photos that appear to show hairs in his chicken fillet burger, which also has a broken bun.

Barry, a sales director, said: “The pictures don’t even do it justice. There were hairs everywhere. It was so disgusting.

“The food was so battered I just threw it straight in the bin.”

He added: “The chicken pieces had the crispy coating missing from them, the burger bun was completely split in half like it had been dropped on the floor, and another bun had several hairs inside it.”

Barry ordered the delivery from JustEat for his wife and two sons, aged 11 and 13.

He’s stopped short of boycotting the fast-food chain to keep his kids happy.

Barry said: “What’s cheesing me off is when I chase them I’m told they’re looking into it but don’t hear anything back.

“I think it’s pretty disgusting really. I’ve been going back and forth with them since July, something like 30 emails.”

“I’m not going to say I’m never going back, all restaurants have bad days and I think my kids would have something to say about never having KFC again, but this has left me very unhappy.”

A KFC spokesperson said: “Not ideal – we’re sorry part of Barry’s meal didn’t meet the Colonel’s high standards.

“It goes without saying that it shouldn’t have been there, so we offered Barry a voucher and are reaching back out to make things right!”
