A  New Jersey woman was out at a Popeyes restaurant in Harlem when she found what she claims is a rat head in her chicken meal.

“This is clearly a rat and they have the nerve to have a 5 rating by the Department of Health,” wrote Rosemary Thomas on Facebook, describing her experience on Sunday eating out with her daughter, sister and niece.

Thomas also wrote on Facebook that she had to take her daughter to an urgent care clinic after the experience because her daughter felt ill.

“Yesterday, she ate nothing all day,” Thomas wrote. “All she said she could think of was the rat head after she consumed the crispy part.”

Popeyes spokeswoman Renee Kopkowski said that Popeyes was aware of the Facebook post and that the owner of the franchise had reached out to Thomas.

“He’s meeting with [Thomas] as soon as she is able,” Kopkowski told HuffPost. “In the meantime, he ordered a health department inspection and they found nothing out of the ordinary. We’ve checked with suppliers and they feel it is most likely chicken organ meat. We will work with the guest to recover the product and test it to confirm that.”
