Woman suing KFC for $20mn because 'family bucket wasn't filled to the top'

A woman is suing KFC for $20,000,000 (£16,000,000) because the family bucket she ordered was not filled to the top.

Anna Wurtzburger, from New York, says she bought the $20 (£16) bucket of chicken over the summer as a 'rare treat' but was shocked when it looked nothing like the KFC's ads.

She told the New York Post: 'I came home and said, “Where's the chicken?” I thought I was going to have a couple of meals.

'You get half a bucket! That's false advertising, and it doesn't feed the whole family. They're small pieces!'

Furious, the 64-year-old widow rang up KFC's headquarters in Georgia to complain and was told the chicken was portrayed prominently on the commercial 'so that the public could see the chicken.'



Wurtzburger said: 'If you want the public to look at your chicken, put it in a dish. It's a lot of BS. … I expect to get what you're telling me.'

So she put her money where her mouth is, hired a lawyer and filed a lawsuit, demanding KFC change its advertising.

She also gave back the two gift certificates she received from the company as compensation.

The grandma, who lives off benefits, is now seeking $20 million (£16,352,562m) in damages.

A spokesperson for KFC told Metro.co.uk: 'These claims are meritless and we will be asking the court to dismiss this case.'
