McDonald’s customers have long wondered what goes on behind the scenes at the Golden Arches, with the process behind the average McDonald’s hamburger something that definitely falls into the category of “don’t ask, don’t tell.”
Further evidence of this has been provided by one Andrew Rivera who has produced photographic evidence of what a McDonald’s cheeseburger and fries looks like…five years after he purchased it.
The image features a rather shrivelled looking gherkin alongside some decidedly brown tomato sauce.
But neither of those things are particularly shocking – it has been five years after all.
No, the real worry is that pretty much everything else in the picture is…well…the same.
Featured in a glass case in Rivera’s office at the The Bridge Chiropractic and Wellness centre in Papillion, Nebraska the image has subsequently gone viral.
There may be a logical reason behind the lack of noticeable decay though, with many suggesting the glass case the food items are being kept in is the reason there has been little in the way of noticeable degradation.
The photo does pose some pretty serious questions as to what exactly we are putting into our bodies every time we visit a McDonald’s.
However, the same could be said of so much we consume.
