Carl's Jr. Customer Finds Feather in Chicken Nugget

One Carl's Jr. customer in California told KGTV she found evidence of her meal's ... prior life.

"I had one, and then I went to grab another one, and I saw the feather. I was picking it up, and I was like, 'What is that?'" Dani Campbell told KGTV.

"A tiny little feather at the tip of the star," the KGTV reporter said.

"Gross," Campbell said.

A KGTV reporter spoke with that location's general manager, who reportedly appeared shocked about the feather but didn't speak on camera.

Last month, a customer of a different California Carl's Jr. location complained about a feather showing up in her Carl's Jr. star-shaped nuggets.

"You open it up, and they look pretty normal, right? But if you notice, this one has a feather in it. A real feather. From a chicken. ... They fall off of birds, and birds have, you know, diseases, bacteria, things like that. So, if you're going to eat chicken, you would expect not to eat the feathers," Khrystina Bradley told KGTV.

At the time of that incident in April, a Carl's Jr. spokesperson told the station it was the first time they'd seen anything like that in the 20 years the company has been serving chicken stars.

Some viewers commented on KGTV's Facebook post, saying Bradley should just be happy her meal was made of real chicken. Another said it happens to her at another restaurant chain all the time, and she just pulls out the feather.

There has been no comment from Carl's Jr. on this second incident thus far.
