Kentucky officials on Friday warned motorists to avoid a portion U.S. Highway 62 where chicken offal — the parts of the chicken removed from the prepackaged cuts — spilled along the roadway.
“The Calvert City Fire Department is attempting to wash the waste material off the roadway,” the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet wrote in a Facebook post Friday morning. “KYTC Marshall County Maintenance will apply salt to the roadway to enhance traction and cut through the slick smelly coating on the pavement.”

The spill was just east of the Interstate 24 Calvert City exit, according to the post.
“To avoid the smell and getting chicken waste on your vehicle, you should avoid this area,” the post reads.
