  • Not the Sandwich Topping Anyone Had in Mind

    In October 2015, a Subway customer in Lincoln City, Oregon snapped this photo of a furry rodent, which had been plopped on his friend's sandwich along with a scoop of spinach. "It’s the funniest thing I’ve ever seen, but it’s also the most disgusting thing I’ve ever seen,” Matt Jones, who took the photo, said.

    The health department promptly conducted an investigation and decided that the rat was likely sealed in with a bag of spinach by the supplier, which means that everyone who ate spinach that day was also exposed to the yucky rat-spinach, but the restaurant itself was clean. 

  • Meth on the Secret Menu at In-N-Out

    A milkshake lover in Downey, Ca got more than he bargained for when he stopped by In-N-Out for dinner. Fred Maldonado says he started feeling a little strange after finishing his burger and shake, and noticed two capsules in the bottom of his cup.

    According to Maldonado, he test the capsules and found out that they contained methamphetamine. When he went back to the restaurant, Maldonado says the manager apologized and offered him a free burger. Not pleased with the response, he decided to sue the So Cal chain. In-N-Out called the allegations "baseless."

  • Smelling a Rat at KFC

    When Devorise Dixon bit into his chicken tender from a California KFC, he thought it tasted "hard and rubbery." Upon further inspection, he noticed it looked an awful lot like a rat, complete with a tail. He claims that he confirmed it was a rat with the manager and was offered a free meal, but instead chose to save the alleged rat and hire a lawyer.

    KFC has tried to contact Dixon with little success, and expresses doubt toward his claim, as chicken tenders can come in all shapes and sizes. Eventually, one of them has to turn out rat shaped, right? KFC has offered to have the tender tested at an independent lab to clear up what they hope is a really, really gross misunderstanding.

  • The Extra Creepy Arby's Incident

    In 2005, a man eating an Arby's sandwich noticed that the meat tasted a little odd. Upon examining the suspicious sandwich contents, he discovered to his horror that they appeared to have a fingerprint. That's right: real finger skin, just right there in a sandwich.

    He proceeded back to the Arby's, where he discovered the manager nursing a recent finger wound - the rest unfolded exactly how you're afraid it did.

    In 2003, an illogically bold Baltimore City man was enjoying dinner at a local Popeye's Chicken, regardless of the fact that it had been shut down several times due to health violations.

  • A Whopper of a Surprise
