Using Genetically Engineered Chickens With No Feathers or Beaks-
Summary of eRumor:
claims that KFC (formerly known as Kentucky Fried Chicken) is trying to increase profits by developing genetically
engineered chickens that have more meat, are cheaper to raise, and faster to
process. They are variously described as having no heads, no beaks, no
legs, and no feathers. That's why they changed their name to KFC.
complete fiction. KFC denies it and there is no evidence of the
genetically engineered chickens described. KFC
uses chickens that are born from other chickens in the normal way. KFC did
not change it's name in order to accommodate chickens that are not really

A real example of the story as it has been circulated:
KFC has been a part of
our American traditions for many years. Many people, day in and day out, eat at
KFC religiously. Do they really know what they are eating? During a recent study
of KFC done at the University of New Hampshire, they found some very upsetting
First of all, has anybody noticed that just recently, the company has changed
their name? Kentucky Fried Chicken has become KFC. Does anybody know why? We
thought the real reason was because of the "FRIED" food issue. It's
not. The reason why they call it KFC is because they can not use the word
chicken anymore. Why? KFC does not use real chickens. They actually use
genetically manipulated organisms. These so called "chickens" are kept
alive by tubes inserted into their bodies to pump blood and nutrients throughout
their structure. They have no beaks, no feathers, and no feet. Their bone
structure is dramatically shrunk to get more meat out of them.
This is great for KFC because they do not have to pay so much for their
production costs. There is no more plucking of the feathers or the removal
of the beaks and feet. The government has told them to change all of their menus
so they do not say chicken anywhere. If you look closely you will notice this.
Listen to their commercials, I guarantee you will not see or hear the word
chicken. I find this matter to be very disturbing. I hope people will start to
realize this and let other people know. Please forward this message to as
many people as you can. Together we make KFC start using real chicken again.
