A 38-year-old mother got a very nasty surprise when she bit into her sandwich.
Hard to believe in a careless mistake. A few months ago, in February 2021, a 38-year-old woman who had ordered her dinner at McDonald’s in Saint-Witz (Val-d’Oise) with a friend through a food delivery application came across … a dead lizard biting into his Sandwich.
“I had the feeling that there was something strange,” says the young woman, quoted by “Le Parisien”. “It was well coated with sauce, the chef must have seen that,” adds the friend with whom she shared the table that night.
“I got the impression that they weren’t surprised at all”
Stunned by this unsavory discovery, the two women immediately went to the McDonald’s restaurant where the burger had been prepared for an explanation. “I got the impression that they weren’t surprised at all, judges the Thirties. The chef was behind and never came to see us. The manager wasn’t there.” “We’ve seen people struggle to justify themselves,” adds her friend.
As the mother of an 8-month-old baby that she was breastfeeding until then, the young woman decided after this mishap to stop breastfeeding her son as a precaution. After biting the dead lizard, the 30-year-old feared possible infection, especially salmonellosis. In fact, the day after that indigestible meal, the mother was “nauseous,” prompting her doctor to prescribe antibiotics.
When a manager at the affected restaurant finally contacted the customer to offer her “an arrangement,” the young woman didn’t listen and hired a lawyer to sue the fast-food brand. McDonald’s must therefore answer during a hearing scheduled for February 2023 in the Pontoise court for “endangering the lives of others”.
The management of the Saint-Witz restaurant will continue to ensure justice with the necessary elements in relation to this case. It also states that “Quality and food safety are the brand’s priorities and therefore numerous audits and controls are carried out throughout the preparation of our menus, both at our suppliers and within the establishment”.
