NEW YORK (WVUE) -

A woman believes she found a cooked rat head in fried chicken meal at a Popeyes restaurant in New York City. Health officials are investigating the claim, according to FOXNews.com.

Rosemary Thomas shared several images of what appears to be a friend, severed rodent’s head on Facebook on Sunday.

“Friends and family, this is a meal Popeyes in Harlem served my daughter, my niece and sister. This is clearly a rat and they have the nerve to have a 5 rating by the department of health,” Thomas wrote in her post. “People please free to share this picture. Think about all the other rat that have been served and the lasting effect this will have on my daughter, niece and sister.”

Her post has been shared more than 189,000 times.

The Popeyes is located in Harlem and received an “A” grade from the city’s health department back in April, according to FOX.

A spokeswoman said Thomas was asked to bring the chicken meal back to Popeyes on Monday and meet with the franchise owner about the incident.

FOX reported the company will be reaching out to the location’s supplier.
