article imageWorm found in McDonald's burger

An international branch of McDonald's in Finland served up more than one customer wanted in his burger. The customer discovered a live black worm lurking in his burger slathered sauce.
Vuotias Helsinkiläismies, 22, treated himself to a take-out two euro burger from McDonald's. When he arrived home and unwrapped his hamburger he made a disgusting discovery as the worm crawled out of his food.
Voice Finland reported that the man immediately contacted McDonald's to complain. The branch manager apologized, requested the offending burger and its worm returned to the restaurant, and offered him a credit for the McDonald's meal of his choice. However, Helsinkiläismies decided it was not worth spending 2.7 euros on the bus-fare to return for another burger.
Instead he has sealed the worm inside the burger and popped it inside his fridge until he has the opportunity to return the tainted food to McDonald's. Helsinkiläismies considers it lucky that he spotted the worm before eating it and now hopes the restaurant will focus more on quality control.
MSNBC sent a Dateline team to check if "America’s top 10 fast food chains are clean and safe." Amongst their rather unpleasant discoveries they found a worm in a Wendy's salad, making Wendy's a choice to avoid if the Finnish man decides to take a State side trip.
