This Customer was Shocked to Find Mold in His McDonald’s Burger





After the controversial KFC deep fried rat meal, a McDonald’s customer from Taplow, Berkshire was horrified to find a mold growing on top of a bun served to him while dining at McDonald’s Holborn.

Edward Porter, a 33-year-old senior executive at a software company, decided to post photos of  the moldy burger on social media after the fast food restaurant offered him £30 in vouchers as a “fair amount of compensation”.

Porter was dining along with his colleagues when he suddenly spotted the blue mold on his meal just as he was about to take a bite.

“I was served a burger with mold on it at the Holborn McDonald’s in London. It happened at 11.30pm on 4 June; I was working in Liverpool Street, London and had been out with some clients. I went to McDonald’s to get a quick burger with my colleague before heading home,” Porter told The Daily Mail UK.

Porter immediately informed the duty manager about his moldy burger and was offered a refund and another burger in apology. Although he didn’t accept the refund, he took the new burger as he was really hungry at that time.

Disappointed by the way the McDonald’s management handled his complaint, Porter shared the controversial photos on social media as his “last resort”. Of course, the disgusting images quickly went viral and the controversial rotten meal was dubbed by social media users as “Mcmoldy”.

A McDonald’s spokesperson claimed that they have apologized to the angry McDonald’s customer and reimbursed him. Moreover, they have launched a full investigation on the incident.

Reportedly, Porter made an unreasonable compensation claim which he quickly denied.
