Joyce Fedd visited the McDonald’s drive-thru in Jacksonville, Florida to pick herself up a tasty McChicken sandwich. Turns out that she also got a side order of two worms free of charge. And at least one of them was purple! BONUS!
“I went to the drive-through and ordered two chicken sandwiches for my kids when I bit into this one something,” Fedd said. “I tasted something. Took it out my mouth and [it had] a worm in it.”’
The owner of the McDonald’s quickly issued a response to the incident.
“Food safety is a top priority and we take incidents such as this very seriously, as it is highly unusual,” Jim Van Laere, the McDonald’s owner/operator, said. “When the customer returned to the restaurant and brought it to our attention, we refunded her money and replaced her sandwich, and quickly reviewed our entire kitchen to ensure this type of occurrence could not happen.”
Lucky for Action News reporter Alyana Gomez that she was already at the McDonald’s covering a triple shooting that happened the night before or we might not have known about this story, huh?
Gomez found out from Fedd right there on the spot that the McDonald’s offered her another sandwich, as if, you know, THAT was actually going to happen. They ended up giving her a refund instead. Fedd says she’s hiring an attorney, because of course she is.
It could have been worse I suppose. She could have ordered a hamburger.
(I’m never eating fast food again.)
