McDonald's, which has recently been followed by foreign substances, is controversial this time by selling hash browns with mosquitoes attached.
McDonald's promised to prevent a recurrence whenever a foreign substance came out, but it became an empty flame.
Mr. A, who lives in Busan, visited the McDonald's store he used to frequent at around 9:21 am on the 28th and ordered a 'Sausage and Egg McMuffin Set'.
But after mashing the potatoes on the set menu, he lost his appetite when he saw a large mosquito clinging to the yellow-fried hash browns.
He immediately complained to the McDonald's employee and at the same time reported the mosquito-attached hash browns to the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety.
He initially thought the mosquitoes were fried together, sticking to the hash browns.
However, McDonald's explained that the hash browns are cooked for two and a half minutes at a high temperature of 186 degrees, so the mosquitoes cannot retain their shape when fried together.
The store rep said he was sorry he hadn't confirmed that mosquitoes were flying around and stuck to the hash browns.
Mr. A said, "McDonald's recently announced that it would improve the manufacturing process as parasites, bugs, and thorns followed one after another, but another foreign substance came out.
He said, “There are many processes in the store to manufacture and service products, and I wonder if they can just bring mosquitoes that can be seen at a glance. I want you to come," he said.
He added, "I hope we promise to prevent the recurrence of foreign substances and break the vicious cycle."
A McDonald's official said, "We are investigating how the insects entered through the pest control company. I think it hurts a lot about the continued reports of foreign substances, and I think there are some areas that are lacking, although we are doing it thoroughly internally. I'm trying to arrange it," he said.
McDonald's has been criticized by public opinion for parasites, caterpillars, and thorns in its hamburgers this year, and has promised to strengthen product hygiene each time.
