Customer Allegedly Finds Worms In His Meal, McDonalds Denies It

It pays to be aware of what you are eating before taking that first bite, especially if the food is from McDonald’s!  Especially if you share, with Eeghie Borjal Nucum, a distaste for worms in your food.  Not only was the order received later than promised, as well as different from what was actually ordered, the chicken fillet was discovered to be full of worms.

This customer was paying attention to what he was putting in his mouth until near the end of the fillet, but once he did, he was justifiably upset and called for the manager.  A replacement meal was offered – but who wants to eat from an establishment that serves worms in its food?  Eventually, the manager took the remaining specimen and promised a report within a specific amount of time.

So far, nothing has been heard. Knowing this might happen he took photos of the food while in McDonald’s and posted them all over his Facebook page.  These days, if it’s not in black and white, it doesn’t exist.  And he wants customers in the El Pueblo Branch in Ortigas to know what goes in to their meals.

McDonald's explains:  We would like to reassure everyone that the food and drink we serve is safe.  The incident that took place last July 10 in McDonald’s El Pueblo involving an alleged foreign object found in our chicken fillet, as mentioned by a customer in his Facebook post has been investigated.  Our supplier and quality assurance team have confirmed that there is no worm in the chicken fillet. It is a cooked vein of a chicken which is edible and safe to eat.  McDonald’s ensures that all our products and the environment where they are prepared and cooked adhere to our stringent standards of quality, safety and cleanliness.

Meanwhile, McDonalds denies worms in their chicken fillet.
