“I went to KFC Ballina Fair yesterday to get some popcorn chicken for lunch before returning home,” the customer wrote in a since-deleted Facebook post.
“I had already eaten a few pieces before I saw it – a piece of mold part crushed chicken.”
‘Disgusting filthy animals. I’ll never go back there.’

The customer shared two photos of the popcorn chicken with gray spots.
Several commenters responded to the post with sickening and repulsive emojis.
A KFC spokesperson told Yahoo News the coloring was nothing that could have harmed the customer.
“We’re sorry for this customer’s experience, but we can confirm that the dye on the chicken was not mold or anything harmful,” they said.
A former KFC employee said the ‘mouldy’ chicken (above) discoloration was likely from the chicken rubbing the side of a fat buildup in the chicken warmer
‘The customer immediately received a replacement for Popcorn Chicken.’
A former KFC employee told Daily Mail Australia that the discoloration was likely caused by fat buildup in the chicken warmer.
“Often, chicken lying on the side of racks will rub against the heater and discolor from fat build-up,” they said.
