Woman sues KFC for $20m over bucket of chicken

It’s dubbed finger lickin’ good but it seems this KFC meal didn’t quite make the mark for this customer.

An American woman was so disappointed with her ‘family-sized’ bucket of chicken, she’s suing the fast-good chain for $20 million.

Anna Wurtzburger, from New York, says she bought the $20 bucket of chicken over the summer as a ‘rare treat’ but was shocked when it looked nothing like the KFC’s ads.

She told the New York Post: ‘I came home and said, “Where’s the chicken?” I thought I was going to have a couple of meals. You get half a bucket! That’s false advertising, and it doesn’t feed the whole family. They’re small pieces!’

Furious, the 64-year-old widow rang up KFC’s headquarters in Georgia to complain and was told the chicken was portrayed prominently on the commercial ‘so that the public could see the chicken.’

But she wasn’t buying any of it.

Wurtzburger said: ‘If you want the public to look at your chicken, put it in a dish…I expect to get what you’re telling me.’

So she put her money where her mouth is, hired a lawyer and filed a lawsuit, demanding KFC change its advertising.

She also gave back the two gift certificates she received from the company as compensation.

The grandma, who lives off benefits, is now seeking $20 million in damages.
