A Facebook post has revealed that a 14-year-old boy found clump of fly eggs in between a burger he ordered from McDonald. Owner of the Facebook page, Daynah Eriepa’s younger brother, unwrapped his order to find a bunch of small white grain-sized objects in his burger.
‘This is what my brother found on his poorly made burger ordered from McDonalds Greenwood Street yesterday. Those small white worms looks like maggot eggs…How disgusting! [sic]’ She posted on Facebook alongside a picture of the offending burger.
Ms Eriepa’s mother took the burger back to the Hamilton McDonald’s four hours later but said she was wasn’t happy with the way she was treated.
‘She took the burger back as soon as she saw it and was passed around lots of different staff people,’ said Ms Eriepa. Another staff member took the burger and said he will show it to his manager. He put the burger on the counter and swiped the till, however behind the counter he threw the burger straight in the bin.’
Ms Eriepa was given a refund and declined the restaurant’s offer of another burger.
‘They were so rude, we will not be going back there ever again,’ she said.
The original Facebook post on the McDonald’s franchise page has been over 500 times and spurred many users to comment in disgust. The franchisee owner of the Frankton store, Debi Rush, told Stuff NZ the food was ‘made to order. We’ve checked the CCTV footage and from the time the bun was in the toaster to the burger being put in the box and into the bag, was 28 seconds,’ she said.
