Anyway the story goes she ordered a chicken fillet sandwich without Mayonaise from a KFC when she got it she thought they had put Mayonaise on by mistake but it didn't taste like Mayonaise....on closer inspection it turned out to be a sack of puss leaking out of the chicken......I've never been in a KFC since hearing that....I feel ill just typing this. Yuk!!
No wonder UK chicken and chicken meat products are banned from import to Australia.

It's not because we don't chlorine-wash our chicken like you Aussies do then?

Nothing to do with it. You're confused - The levels of chlorine permitted here are the same as those in potable (tap) water which are the same in the EU and UK. This is not the USA.

I bet it is right Summer, my friend went there one night on his way home from work and had a chicken burger thingy, the next day he was so ill with food poisoning he never went there again. And neither have I...

I couldn't tell you the last time I had a burger-place burger, but it was some time before lockdown.

The favourite in our house at the moment is a buffalo stroganoff burger from a Scottish online butcher and boy are those things gorgeous, but we don't have them very often.
Though if this weekend turns out as good weather-wise as promised . . . .
Fancy that Zaphod... I never knew they had Buffalo in Scotland.....

Seriously though..... That sounds rate tasty....

Don't you just love love their pickled gherkins d00d....
Having sampled quite a few Macdonalds specialities over the years, I still think the big mac is one of their finest works...

I'm not confused at all cobber, even when you try evasive action.
Your Aussie chicken ain't exactly great according to this:
https://www.animalsaustralia.org/fea...omach-turn.php

BTW, that report also says: "Chicken carcasses are washed with chlorine to try to control bacteria".
It's something that we in the UK do not allow, as I'm pretty sure you know despite your failed attempt to misdirect.

It is, and buffalo meat is a high protein low fat and hence healthier equivalent to beef which actually tastes pretty much the same as beef too.
I can personally vouch for that, and no I am not in any way connected to the farmer/supplier - but heck does it taste good.

I think we've got an establishment around here that sells Buffalo meat Zaphod, I'll put it on my 'Bargain Bucket' list...

Perhaps that is why your puss filled chicken is unsaleable Cobber?

BSE for chickens?
