Bone-full KFC nuggets that can chock you to death

A while back, my daughter discovered the concept of “chicken nuggets”. Trying to maintain a healthy balance, we make sure she doesn't have more than 3 to 4 pieces per week. Usually on our eating-out day on the weekend. Her favorite is the STAR shaped ones that Hardee's serve.

Last week, I picked my daughter up from the children's play area in Mall of the Emirates. The area is next to one of the food courts there. She said she was hungry and that she wanted chicken nuggets.

Since there was no Hardee's at that court, I got some nuggets from KFC instead.

While she was on her second piece, my daughter came up to her mother with her mouth open and looking agitated. "mama.. mama.. yucky," she mumbled while pointing at her mouth's full.

We opened her mouth and found a huge piece of chicken bone with a sharp, point edge! Can you believe this? My daughter would've easily chocked on it.

I took a few shots of the thing just to give you some perspective to the size of the bone fragment my 3 year old daughter's almost chocked on.


  • i'm very sorry to read about this.. salamat to the lil one.. oh dear me.. bastard KFC!!! let them pay with all the bad publicity they can get.

    the last time i had fast food must have been 3-4yrs ago and even then i just had a french fries!

  • ThankGod nothing happened to the little one. Alhumdolillah.
    But didnt you make a huge scene.
    Sue the pants off de mothas.
    KFC is crap food anyway, I know I know I get the nuggets scene at home too. The whole MickeyDees over everything else.
    KFC is now charging for ketchup. How sad is that.
    I hadnt eaten there for over a year, and that too last in BKK where it tastes so much better.
    We recently had some guests over and they wanted to eat there. I found the food excreable.

  • We never eat there either... last time was about 3 years ago or something. KFC chicken is swimming in fat and the taste is revolting. But who would scrow up nuggets?

  • Sorry to hear that Mo.

    I have stopped eathing at KFC since I knew about this

    Check it out.

    Besides, get some KFC Chicken, keep them in the fridge for 3 days and then take a look at them. Not a very pleasant sight!

  • Ya sater shu had! Man even if you're starving never ever have KFC. Hardees is the "cleanest" if you can say that! Allah satarha

  • Very sorry to hear this... Glad the little one is alright.

    KFC is the worst fast food restaurant in Dubai, period. Anywhere else on the planet and KFC is just bearable, but there... it's almost toxic with its substandard foods, coated in a layer of oil so thick it almost seems like a second skin to the fries...

    I'd have made a HUGE scene... I admire your patience.

  • the alternative to this post would be criticizing you for being an unfit parent.

  • Ta3gib... 3 to 4 pieces a week can hardly label me as an "unfit" parent.

    You are always welcome here my young Omani friend. But i do request you demonstrate more respect and maturity and less of being judgmental.

    I have lots of Omani friends and they are far better than that.

  • Maher - i know .. big time!

    RnD - last time i had KFC was over 3 years ago man. It just happened to be the closest to the play area that was there.

    KJ - She likes Hardees' :) because they are star shaped :)

    tainted - To be honest, i did drive me thru the wall but the people there at the Mall's KFC outlet would have nothing to do with it - they receive the frozen pieces from the factory.

    I told the manager about it, but i couldn't blame him.

    Nonetheless, lesson learned. It reminded me again why i stopped having junk food all together..

  • That happened to me the other day, too. Gone are the days when chicken beaks and claws were effectively ground into a smooth patty form. *sigh* Did you complain? Did they offer you some sort of compensation?

  • Not really. I was so annoyed to the point i knew i would get no-where with him. I think neg publicity is the treatment they deserve

    By Blogger moryarti, at September 1, 2008 at 8:43 AM  

  • I hear ya. I'm on the cusp of giving some negative publicity to a certain hotel unless they compensate me for 2 bottles of wine that were stolen from the room over 2 weeks ago. What a way to start Ramadan: fighting for booze.

  • KFC sucks.. cuz the Original Kentucky Friend CHicken has been sold over to PEPSI.. and u mite have notices they dont use the name KEntucky Friend CHicken anymore.. they use the name KFC only..

    they dont use the original recipes anymore.. its their copied recipes trying to match Kentucky freid chicken..

    PLUS KFC now has started cooking their food in diesel or maybe kerosine oil. Oil can be seen dripping from the CHicken Pieces.. KFC SUCKS BIG TIME..

    they charge u for every single ketchup or mayonnaise .. while cheap cafeterias in dubai offer u a full bottle of Kimball ketchup..

    i stopped having KFC long time bak.. ppl in my office had KFC and their stomach got upset.. all of em.. its always the same case..

    have fun..
