Simon Robinson, 27, got more than he bargained for when he popped into McDonald’s for breakfast earlier this week. Before taking a bite into his bacon sandwich, he opened it to check how many rashers he had inside, only to find what he thinks was a pig’s nipple.
A shocked Mr Robinson drove back to his home in Prudhoe, Gateshead, to show his mum what he had found inside. He says she was also disgusted.
In his horror, he took plenty of pictures and complained to the fast food chain’s head office.
He said: “To open it up and find that was revolting. It has put me off meat entirely. So much so I am considering going vegan now.
In response to the claims, a McDonald’s spokesperson said: “We use back bacon in all our bacon rolls and due to the location that this cut is taken from, we are confident this customer is mistaken in his claim.
“We understand the customer is liaising with our Customer Services Team who are offering further assistance.”
