Cape Town – A local investment analyst is furious after swallowing half a worm on a hamburger bought from McDonald’s.

Mornay Walters told Die Burger he was shocked at the way the fast food chain had handled his complaint.

He only wanted his money back but at the franchise where he bought the burger, he was offered another burger instead – something which he said he definitely didn’t want.

“I was that evening lying on my bed watching a DVD when I ate the burger. With the first bite I tasted something not right. On closer inspection I realised I had swallowed part of a worm.”

He immediately called McDonald’s head office and they promised to get back to him. But it was over a week later and he was still waiting for a response.

He then took his burger to the McDonald’s where he had bought it and was told by the manager that the salad arrived from their suppliers and was taken from the wrapping and put straight on the burger.

The manager in question denied refusing to give back Walters’s money and referred further enquiries to head office.

Head office said they were investigating the incident.

Walter said he would never again buy anything from McDonald’s. “Who knows how many worms I have already swallowed?”
