Wow, KFC! Seriously?!

Ladies and gentlemen… meet KFC‘s newest menu item: “The KFC Double Down!”

KFC’s new Double Down sandwich, which hits stores nationwide today, has been buzzed about since its ingredients were revealed. The Double Down is essentially a sandwich with two chicken fillets taking the place of bread slices. In between are two pieces of bacon, melted slices of Monterey Jack and Pepper Jack cheese and a zesty sauce. The sandwich will pack 540 calories, 32 grams of fat and 1,380 milligrams of sodium, according to KFC. (Dan Kremer/KFC/AP Photo)

This thing looks like it should come with a bottle of Aspirin. You know, just in case you have a HEART ATTACK after consuming something like this! Don’t menu items from national restaurant chains have to go through an approval process from the FDA (Food & Drug Administration)? If not, this is evidence right here that something like that needs to be done… asap!
