Rosemary Thomas says she was eating at a Popeyes restaurant in New York City with her daughter, niece and sister when she noticed a deep-fried rat’s head in her daughter’s food. She took a photo of the disgusting discovery and posted it on Facebook. She wrote, “This is clearly a rat and they have the nerve to have a 5 rating by the department of health.” (The New York City restaurant ratings are actually letter grades.) She added, “Think about all the other rat that have been served and the lasting effect this will have on my daughter, niece and sister.”
A Popeyes spokesperson says they are aware of the incident and are investigating it. They also ordered a health inspection and found nothing out of the ordinary.
