KFC or Kentucky Fried Chicken?

Posted by admin on 20 Dec 07

I received a rather disturbing email from a friend yesterday on everybody’s favorite ayam goreng KFC.

Yes, I’m a yoga fan but I DO indulge in “good” food sometimes.

Read the below article and decide for yourself OK?

*********START OF ARTICLE *********

KFC has been a part of our American traditions for many years. Many people, day in and day out, eat at KFC religiously. Do they really know what they are eating? During a recent study of KFC done at the University of New Hampshire , they found some very upsetting facts. First of all, has anybody noticed that just recently, the company has changed their name?

Kentucky Fried Chicken has become KFC. Does anybody know why? We thought the real reason was because of the “FRIED” food issue.


The reason why they call it KFC is because they can not use the word chicken anymore. Why? KFC does not use real chickens. They actually use genetically manipulated organ isms. These so called “chickens” are kept alive by tubes inserted into their bodies to pump blood and nutrients throughout their structure. They have no beaks, no feathers, and no feet. Their bone structure is dramatically shrunk to get more meat out of them. This is great for KFC.

They do not have to pay so much for their production costs. There is no more plucking of the feathers or the removal of the beaks and feet. The government has tol d them to change all of their menus so they do not say chicken anywhere. If you look closely you will notice this. Listen to their commercials, I guarantee you will not see or hear the word chicken. I find this matter to be very disturbing.

I hope people will start to realize this and let other people know. Please forward this message to as many people as you can. Together we make KFC start using real chicken again.

Putting aside the photograph of the naked chickens which has nothing to do with KFC at all.

The real reason was in fact the ‘fried’ issue. Because of the sudden shift of a healthier lifestyle, Kentucky Fried Chicken has undergoed a branding effort to be known just as KFC.

Also, the poultry used by KFC varies country by country. I’m in Australia so they use local poultry here. For Malaysia, I’m certain it’s from Ayamas.

I would say the email is misleading by all means. It’s like that myth about someone finding a fried rat while eating at KFC!

This is an urban myth Snopes

Besides, even if it were using the chickens pictured here, they’re still chickens. They’re just featherless chickens.

Anyway, I don’t consider KFC ‘good’ food 😛 but i still crave for it once in a long while…

Thanks for pointing things out all, but my weekly quota for KFC is still not more than once a week.

But then again now they are serving breakfast, maybe it’s time to review the quota.

I have received this kind of mail even few years back about KFC. I actually only believe in 50%. Now a day, there are just too many mails around sharing some knowledge of certain things, but all these are not certified by nay authority.

i dont think the chickens in the picture do not have beaks n feet lol!! they r just featherless which i think is quite possible due to some malnutrition or they r genetically modified (featherless) for studies about poultry.

What about the fact KFC fries everything with PALM OIL ! Another big greedy corporation insisting on useing PALM OIL without the care of the fact that the Palm Oil Plantations throughout Indonesia and Borneo (100% funded by china) are created by clearing the natural rainforest, home of thousands of felllow earth creatures including one of mans closest relatives the peaceful and defenceless ORANGUTANS. Our unwilling support and purchases of products created with or containing PALM OIL is the sole reason the earths amazing ORANGUTANS have been pushed to the brink of extinction!


Bueno, cadbury, kitkat, OREO, Pringles, MARS, Hersheys, FERRERO ROCHER, TimTams, Milo bar, you know or discover any others please let me know, Ide appreciate it.

Check your next chocolate bar before you purchase and support the death and destruction.
Check your next biscuits & cookies before you purchase and support the death and destruction.
Check your next potatoe chips & crisps before you purchase and support the death and destruction.
Check your next skin care product before you purchase and support the death and destruction.

If the ingredients include ‘vegetable oil’ and the nutrition includes ‘saturated fat’- you can be sure your buying and supporting palm oil. Palm Oil & Coconut oil are the oils which are ‘saturated fat’. (by the way, that makes it so bad for your health as well. But these big greedy companies dont dseem to care about that. They dont care about YOU or the earths environment and its creatures.

Dont you think it’s time to ”evolve’!…..

dont compare malaysian kfc with american kfc. kfc in malaysia is under johor corporation. they just use the name KFC but it is belong to malaysian. they just pay 6% royalty to KFC for using the name. KFC, pizza and ayamas are all belong to Johor Corporation (J-Corp)

“These so called “chickens” are kept alive by tubes inserted into their bodies to pump blood and nutrients throughout their structure.”

If this was the case it would be a lot less cruel than with ‘real’ chickens.
