McDonald’s faces ‘cockroach burger’ claim in NZ

Wellington: Fast food giant McDonald’s on Monday said it was aware of a New Zealand woman’s allegation she found a half-eaten cockroach in a hamburger bought at one of its South Island restaurants.

Annah Sophia Stevenson told Fairfax New Zealand that she bought a Big Mac meal on Saturday night then found the cockroach when she was back at home and part-way through eating the burger. “The guts were hanging out and it had a big hole in the middle of it,” the 26-year-old make-up artist said.

“I was trying to squeeze my teeth through it. I was chewing on that thing for a while. I thought it was a bit of gristly meat.” Stevenson did not complain to the restaurant, instead posting pictures on Facebook and saying she felt “violated, ill, traumatised and disgusted”.
