We all thought it couldn’t get any worse than the Chop’t ‘rat wrap’ two years ago — but this fried creature may take the cake.
A woman in Harlem posted a picture on Facebook of a deep-fried rat head in her Popeye’s order. That’s right. A rat head.
Rosemary Thomas claims the meal was served to her daughter, niece and sister at a Harlem location, and urges the public to share the image that scarred her family.
Her caption reads: “This is clearly a rat and they have the nerve to have a 5 rating by the department of health.” According to the city Department of Health, this specific location does indeed have an ‘A’ grade.
“My daughter is traumatized. I had to take her to urgent care last night, vomited with diarrhea all day.”
DNAInfo.com reports that a spokeswoman for Popeyes that “it’s not common to find unusual items in the chain’s chicken… but they usually turn out to be chicken organs.”
We admit that this is better than a fried rat — but still not very appetizing.
The Harlem Popeye’s address is 2730 Frederick Douglas Blvd.
