Turn's out Kentucky Fried Chicken is "not so finger lickin' good".
Recently, Kentucky Fried Chicken has been ordered to pay $8 million ($8.3 million US dollars) to Monika Samaan, an Australian girl who suffered severe brain damage after eating a Twister wrap.
Samaan was seven when she suffered salmonella encephalopathy - a brain injury linked to food poisoning that also left her with a blood infection and septic shock - in October 2005.
According a Yahoo! News article, The New South Wales Supreme Court ruled in the family's favor a week ago and in a statement, the family's lawyer, George Vlahakis, said the family was relieved because "Monika's severe brain damage and severe disability has already exhausted the very limited resources of the family."
In a "twisted" turn of events, KFC has recently indicated that they plan on appealing the decision and that the family does not deserve a cent. However, they have yet to make that official.
