An Australian man found what he believes may be a lung in a piece of KFC chicken. 

Marc Nicholls, from Australia’s Gold Coast, was left repulsed after finding the organ in his fried chicken.

“It was disgusting,” Mr Nicholls, 30, told the Daily Mail Australia. “It was absolutely vile.”

It is not clear whether the discovery represented a failure on the part of KFC’s food preparation facility.

“Most of the time offal is removed in the preparation process, but occasionally it may remain,” a KFC spokesman told the newspaper, adding that it posed no health risk.
