cripes I feel sick thinking about this all day.


This morning I was eating an Egg McMuffin from McDonalds and on the last mouthful i was biting on something hard...WTF ?

it was a hunk of human fingernail, trimmed off 3/16th's wide, the full arc of the nail.

:barf

I brought it inside to complain, and called the store owner and McDonalds corp, and they said jeeze we investigate these complaints fully, we are sorry...keep that fingernail, and we'll be in touch. Our insurance company will be sending you something in the mail.

--
So, what would you do ? Should I just get a refund or seek something else ? I feel like absolute shit.

I eat on the road all the time, as I travel around fixing and installing stuff. I eat out for lunch daily. Today I have zero appetite, and am scared of eating any prepared foods right now. I sorta feel crappy thinking what I might have ingested. And then the health implications of chewing on someones grubby nail.

I contacted the State Health Dept and filed a complaint. is there something else I should be doing ?

No THAT is a health department concern and restaurants require people to keep their nails short when they deal with food.... That is a definite alertable offense! I'd call the Health Department and turn that nail over to them...

McDonalds also should give you something in return for that.....

It's definitely disgusting and I'd be taking some sort of action. But I'd like to point out that no one HAS to eat at McDonald's :rolleyes

Yeah but Kell, people DO eat there.. thats just the way it is.
Fingernails in food is UNACCEPTABLE no matter how much of a dive a place is.

Oh I know....it's definitely UNACCEPTABLE and I know people eat there. But no one has to as someone else was suggesting.

:rolleyes boo-fucking-hoo, let's sue the world. yeah, it's not fun finding a fingernail in your food, but it's not going to kill you. just cuz that stupid bitch burned herself and got tons of dough doesn't mean it's right for you to try the same.

It's a fingernail people. Not a used rubber or a wad of phlegm. It was most likely an accident. Besides. It's probably the healthiest thing you had in your mouth while you were eating there. :thumb

Write a letter to both the store manager and McD's corporate office to notify them of your experience. If the response is not prompt, contact the Health Dept, and make McD's aware that you've shared your experience with many others. Follow up until you get a satisfactory resolution.

While it would be gross, I probably wouldn't throw a whole lot of time or effort into it. Weird things are going to happen from time to time when you're being served by highschool kids. Chalk it up to a funny/gross McD's story, post it on the web, and avoid eating their food in the future.

You know, the burned by hot coffee thing is not quite what you seem to think. The feds had fined Mc many times for serving coffee to go at temperatures high enough to cause 3rd deg. burns. They just kept doing it until an old lady got said burns right in her lap. Everyone has spilled some coffee in the car, and you shouldn't need surgery from it. I forget what she got but the fine was what? 5 mil, 15 mil? A lot of jang, right? Try ONE DAY coffee sales for you know who. But back on topic, I think I would rather burn my nads than eat somebody else's nasty ass fingernail.:(

There were also issues with the cups that the coffee was being served in, iirc.
