Different type of chicken recipe

April 8, 2009 5:22:01 AM PDT
Flaming chicken -- sounds like a gourmet dish.

But it's the recipe for a lawsuit.

KFC is suing one of its suppliers, charging the cups used for popcorn chicken can catch fire in a microwave.

The colonel's people contend the ink's been changed for the cup supplied by Paris Packaging.

KFC charges the new ink formula contains carbon, which may catch fire if heated.

A KFC spokesman says at least two people have reported fires, but there have been no injuries.

No response yet from the container company in the flaming chicken suit.
