McDonald’s Singapore said today it is looking into reports a customer’s order of fries came with a side of dead insect at an Ang Mo Kio outlet.
A crispy, fried bee is not what Facebook user Ja-ne Yeo expected to find among her fried goodies when she ordered them with a grilled chicken salad meal Sunday, according to photos she posted of her receipt and the death-sullied fries.
“EVERYONE AT AMK PARK MCDONALD’S RIGHT NOW… STAHP EATING YOUR FRIES!!!!!!!!” she wrote unsubtly in the caption.
She also appealed to McDonald’s to “change the oil now” in a separate post to its page.
McDonald’s told Coconuts Singapore today it was looking into the matter but has already asked its pest control vendor to conduct a “thorough inspection” of the outlet in question.
“We have been in contact with the customer to address his concerns and are looking into this matter very closely,” it said in a statement. Yeo said she bought the meal with her husband.
“Again, we would like to assure our customers that we take all feedback relating to food safety and quality very seriously, and will continue to ensure that our restaurants maintain high levels of hygiene,” McDonald’s added.
Photos posted by Yeo showed the sad, deep-fried pollinator surrounded by the few undevoured fries at the bottom of the packet.
