Yesterday morning (20 October 2015), IT freelancer Jasper Lee got a nasty surprise as he tucked into the Big Breakfast set which he ordered through McDelivery. He had taken a few bites before spotting something moving on his sausage patty. Upon closer inspection, it turned out to be worms. Jasper lost his appetite after that and made a complaint with McDonalds over the disgusting incident.
This tainted Big Breakfast set was delivered from a nearby McDonalds outlet at Block 208 Hougang Street 21. McDonalds staff has been in touch with Mr Lee and were prompt in taking the food remains for lab testing. Jasper speculates that the maggots or worms may have come from the scrambled eggs as when he cut into it, there were quite a number of worms crawling in it.
McDonald’s Singapore Director of Operations, Patricia Yong said:
“Let me emphasise that food quality and safety are our top priority and we take all customer feedback very seriously…At the moment, we are doing everything we can to establish the facts of the matter.”
