AN NHS worker felt sick to his stomach after finding suspected fly eggs in his KFC Mighty Bucket – halfway through eating.
Alex Craven only noticed the disgusting looking pale grains as he put his last piece of chicken to his lips, leaving him utterly "distressed".
The 22-year-old ordered the takeaway meal, which comes with two pieces of Original Recipe chicken, two chicken breast mini fillets, a pair of hot wings, fries and a drink, to share with a pal.
But minutes into devouring the dish, he noticed something that definitely wasn't on the menu.
On closer inspection, he clocked what he believed to be fly eggs, which hatch into larvae – or maggots.
Alex, from South Wales, said: "I saw the white patches and when I realised what they were I was sickened and disgusted.

"It was horrible knowing I'd already eaten most of my meal and I could have consumed these disgusting eggs. I think they are fly larvae.
"I felt sick and chucked the chicken in the bin after taking a picture so I could complain."
The NHS healthcare assistant notified environmental health about the "distressing" incident at the branch in Cwmbran on August 31, but he claims he was told the store can remain open.
He was later offered a free meal by the store manager – but Alex has vowed never to visit KFC again.

"I didn't feel any symptoms after eating the chicken but I was distressed and wanted it investigating," he said.
"I contacted environmental health and later I received a call from the KFC store manager who offered me a free meal.
"He said their eco lab report was clear but I won't be eating there again.
"I want a full refund or compensation for what happened, and I want the store to be thoroughly investigated."
