Four-legged chicken bought from supermarket scares consumer

If a chicken grows two extra limbs, do you still dare to eat it?
March 18, a citizen from Changsha City, surnamed Tian, was scared to find that a frozen chicken she bought from a supermarket had four legs when she was cleaning it to prepare for dinner.
Tian told reporters that it was the first time in her life seeing a four-legged chicken, and would throw it away with no hesitation.

However, a professor from Central South University of Forestry & Technology, reached by the reporters, said that this kind of chicken generally has no harm to human’s health and is edible, though it may be discomforting to people’s sense organs.
The professor explained, it is a deformed chicken whose embryo, during development, might have been affected by different kinds of factors, like radioactivity in the living environment or the high metal level in feed. This birth defect usually has the extra limb shrunken or deformed too.
Responding to the explanation, Tian said she still felt gross, even though it was confirmed edible. She hoped that the supermarket can trace the source of such a chicken.
One netzien joked, for those who love eating chicken feet, it is instead a good new.

  1. That does not say much for the producers or the supermarkets quality control systems.
