Cameron Holland, a panel beater from Brisbane, recently discovered a McDonald's cheeseburger in a 12-year-old Toyota Camry.
The burger was found behind the car's spare wheel and appeared almost as fresh as the day it was served, except that it was rock-hard.
Holland shared his discovery on TikTok, expressing his disbelief and vowing never to eat McDonald's again.
The video quickly went viral, with viewers expressing their concerns about the burger's lack of decomposition. Comments ranged from questioning the absence of mold to wondering why insects had not touched it.
In response to the viral video, McDonald's issued a statement to News.com.au emphasizing its commitment to quality and freshness.
The company stated that their food is meant to be consumed immediately upon purchase or delivery.
They also addressed the myth that their burgers don't decompose, explaining that food is unlikely to decompose in dry environments.
