Mealbreaker (n.): a nasty, non-edible surprise found in food while it is being eaten; often lawsuit-provoking, sometimes fabricated, always disgusting.
Reddit user LinkBoyJT posted an image Wednesday that might make your skin crawl. After ordering a McDonald’s hash brown and eating most of it, he says he was startled to find what he claims was a deep-fried insect stuck to the bottom half.
The text accompanying the image — which is pretty gross, by the way — reads “I was eating a hash brown from McDonald’s on the way home when I felt something on the bottom… ”
The user doesn’t disclose what type of insect it is, but it appears to be some sort of cockroach or moth. Late Wednesday night, he posted an update:
I took the thing and showed it to the manager and she marked my receipt so I could get the same meal for free the next time I come in for breakfast. She didn’t really seem all that concerned
This isn’t the first time bugs have allegedly been found in McDonald’s food. In 2010, an Ontario man discovered at least 50 dead ants in his breakfast burrito. Last year, a Miami family found insect parts in near every dish they ordered, starting with an order of pancakes, and an Australian patron found a cockroach stuck to the inside of an iced coffee.
