A MCDONALD’S customer has claimed they were “knocked sick” after they found a dead insect in a Big Tasty burger.
The customer received the unhappy meal from the McDonald's restaurant in Parsonage Retail Park, Leigh on Saturday.
According to Manchester Evening News the food was delivered by Uber Eats just after 9pm.
After opening up their food the horrified patron spotted the red and brown beetle-like bug hiding in the sauce on the top part of the bun.
The customer, who does not wish to be names, chucked their burger in the bin after snapping pics of the horrid insect.
Pictures of the bug were then shared on social media as the customer said discovering the bug made them feel ill.
They wrote: "McDonald’s Parsonage Retail Park, make sure you check inside your burgers, knocked me sick."
Following the incident, McDonald's said that an investigation has been launched.
A spokesperson told The Sun: “We are sorry to hear about this customer’s experience.
“Food safety is of the utmost importance to us and we place great emphasis on quality control, following rigorous standards to avoid any imperfections.
"We are disappointed that, on this occasion, this was not the case.
"As soon as this matter was brought to our attention, we apologised and started an investigation.
"We would encourage this customer to contact our Customer Services team to claim a refund and to discuss this matter in more detail, if they have not already done so."
