A woman in Australia, said that she will never eat chicken again after a restaurant served her a maggot infested meal.

Emy Wamboi of Newcastle said that she and her 7-year-old son were hungry so they visited a Nando’s location.

She ordered the restaurant’s famous grilled chicken.

When she was served, Wamboi and her son noticed something strange.

They found a number of maggots crawling under the skin of the chicken.

She recorded the maggots crawling on her chicken and uploaded the video to the Internet.

Wamboi showed the maggots to a manager, triggering an investigation by the company and the Newcastle City Council.

Wamboi was offered a full refund, but she said that she will not eat at the restaurant again.

Wamboi also sad that she was put off from eating chicken.

Nando’s apologized to Wamboi.
