Talk about finger lickin' bad.

Fast food giant Kentucky Fried Chicken has apologized to a UK student after he found what appeared to be a chicken's brain in his KFC meal, MSN News reported.

Ibrahim Langoo, 19, of Essex, was eating a Gladiator box meal at a KFC in December when he crunched into the brain-like material.

“I have a habit of picking the chicken off the bone with my fingers and as I pulled the second piece apart, I saw this horrible wrinkled foreign body," he told The Sun. “I threw it down onto my tray immediately. It looked like a brain. I suddenly felt grim and really sick."

Langoo snapped a pic of the suspected organ and complained to staff.

KFC anlayzed the photo and don't believe it was a chicken brain, but instead possibly a KIDNEY.

"Although we haven’t received the product, it appears from a photograph that unfortunately on this occasion a kidney, and not a brain as claimed, was not removed in the preparation process," the company said in a statement to The Sun. "We’re very sorry about Mr Langoo’s experience and while there was no health risk, we agree it was unsightly.”

The fast food chain offered Langoo free vouchers, but, understandably, he says he never wants to eat KFC again.
