KFC - Etiquette in Customer Service
Safety Concern: Boneless Chicken Not Boneless - Complaint
TUMWATER, WASHINGTON -- I ordered the 2 piece Boneless Chicken meal, and while eating lunch with a co-worker, I found a bone in the piece of chicken I had inmy mouth. I felt it while biting down. No damage to my teeth. I pulled the bone out and it was about 1 inch long and about 1 to 1.5 millimeters in diameter. I showed my co-worker and we thought it was sort of funny. After I got done with eating I got back in line to show that I found a bone in the boneless chicken. The cashier called for a manager, and I informed the manager I found a bone in the boneless chicken. The manager was very nonchalant and wanted to know if I wanted another piece of chicken. Didn't apologize, just seemed very unconcerned. I just let the manager I didn't want anything, I just wanted them to know they should be aware there are bones and it can be dangerous. It didn't occur to me until I was in my car that the one bone has the potential to be very dangerous. Could have chipped a tooth, speared soft tissue in my mouth, could have choked on it, or even worse, could have choked and had it speared in my throat. I don't want anyone fired or get into trouble, but KFC should create procedures for when bones are found. Ask if I was injured and possibly find out where I found the bone to prevent the same piece of bone being found on other meals. If I had a child and if something happened to my child while eating "boneless" chicken, I would be very upset. The manager should at least put the customer's thoughts at ease before they leave. I ate there 3 times this week, and now I'm not sure if I'll go back. The food was fine, just the lack of concern bothers me.
