A woman in New York is suing KFC because she feels the bucket of chicken she bought from the restaurant wasn’t nearly as full as the one advertised on TV.
Anna Wurtzburger, of Hudson Valley, New York, says she bought a $20 bucket of chicken from a Kentucky Fried Chicken outlet and was highly disappointed to find it looked much different than what was advertised by the restaurant.
“I came home and said, ‘Where’s the chicken?’ I thought I was going to have a couple of meals,” she told reporters. “They say it feeds the whole family, They’re showing a bucket that’s overflowing with chicken,” the 64-year-old widow complained.
“You get half a bucket! That’s false advertising, and it doesn’t feed the whole family. They’re small pieces!” She said.
She called the KFC headquarters to place her complaints and was told the chicken was made to flow out of the bucket “so that the public could see the chicken”. The reply clearly enraged her as she told reporters “If you want the public to look at your chicken, put it in a dish. It’s a lot of BS.… I expect to get what you’re telling me.”
Wurtzburger hired a lawyer and filed a lawsuit, demanding KFC change its advertising. She’s also seeking $20 million in damages.
KFC have since called the lawsuit “meritless”.
