A panel thug has sworn off ever eating McDonald’s again after finding a “petrified” burger in a customer’s car.
The rock-hard cheeseburger “looked fresh,” said the 29-year-old Cameron Hollandbut was “probably three years old.”
The Brisbane-based man was so disgusted by the “rock hard” find that he decided to make a video showing off it.
In the video, the meat, cheese and bun look “pristine” and when he removes the bottom bun, the camera catches a few onions inside.
He then takes a hammer to the burger and smashes the meat and bun.
“It’s like a cookie,” he said, crumbling the bun in his hands.
Speaking to FEMAIL, Cameron said the burger was found in the back seat of a 12-year-old Toyota Camry, next to the spare tire that had never been touched.
“I was immediately disgusted and will never eat at McDonald’s again,” he said.
“I was shocked at how fresh the burger looked – and yet it was rock hard.”
He added that no one in the workshop dared to “lick” or “smell” it, but the snack gave off no obvious smell.
McDonald’s did not comment on how long the burger may have been in the car or how long it has looked “pristine.”
Instead, a spokesperson told Daily Mail Australia they are best consumed “when purchased or delivered to ensure quality and freshness”.
However, Cameron’s followers were quick to comment, with some laughing that “the ants didn’t even want it.”
Others joked that it wasn’t a cheeseburger but a “McFossil.”
“So, there’s no mold – what are we eating?” asked a concerned customer.
Cameron said the discovery put him off McDonald’s for life
One person said they had seen a petrified burger before.
“When I was in high school, my science teacher tried to show us how bad McDonald’s was, so we ate a favorite class burger. “One year and no mold,” said a young woman.
“Does anyone remember the man in Adelaide who had a quarter pounder with no smell or mold from 1995, he was 25 years old,” said another.
Others said the burger was probably still edible.
“Just add water to rehydrate it and it’s ready to use,” they said.
The design of the packaging indicates that the burger was made sometime in the last two years.
Cameron added that he has found lots of interesting things in cars, including weapons and drug paraphernalia, but this is the first fossilized food find.
