I can’t stand KFC…now I have a new reason never to eat it again:

An Auckland family has sworn off KFC after their chicken and chips came with a side of writhing maggots.

Christina, who did not want her last name used, said the family got the chicken meal from the Botany Downs store about 3.30pm yesterday.

They took it home and left it on the bench for a couple of hours before dishing it up for their 11-year-old daughter, 7-year-old son and the children’s grandfather about 5.30pm.

Christina and her husband then went out for a short time and were surprised to find on their return that the meal hadn’t been finished.

They were even more surprised – and horrified – when they found out why; daughter Chinen had been about to take a bite of chicken when she looked down to find it writhing with maggots.

“Luckily she looked before she put it into her mouth,” Christina said.

“She was like `there’s maggots in my chicken’ – she was a little teary-eyed.”

Christina said there were about 20 live maggots in the small piece of chicken.
