Nurse disgusted to find dead FLY in box of McDonald’s fries after finishing off half

A NURSE was disgusted after finding a dead FLY in a box of McDonald's fries after he had already eaten half of them.

Fabrizio Bonucci, 36, ordered to fast-food meal for him and his wife on their four-year wedding anniversary after a long shift at work in Newcastle.

But the 36-year-old was disgusted to find a dead fly in his box of fries - after eating half of them already.

Fabrizio and wife Moira, 35, threw their entire Just Eat order of a Big Mac meal, a Chicken Legend meal, a cheeseburger and nine chicken nuggets in the bin.

Speaking to the ChronicleLive, disgusted Fabrizio said: "At first I thought it must have been part of a burnt chip, but when I got a closer look and saw it was a dead fly I was horrified.

"I couldn't believe it. It's simply disgusting.

"We couldn't eat any of it after that and it all went in the bin."

After complaining to Just Eat, the company apologised but did not offer him a refund for their £20 order.

Following the ordeal, the nurse said he would never order from McDonald's again after the "horrendous" experience.

He added: "I'd been working all day and only finished at 8pm so I asked Moira if she wanted a McDonald's to avoid any of us having to cook.

"We were just staying in and watching a movie on TV.

"I'd had no dinner so I was really hungry. It is unbelievable to think this has happened, especially on our anniversary.

"For sure I will not be going to McDonald's again after this."

A Just Eat spokeswoman said: "At Just Eat, we want all of our customers to have a positive experience when using our platform and we're sorry to hear about this. We’re working with McDonald's who are looking into the incident.

"We have also been in touch with the customer to make things right."

A McDonald's spokesman said: "Food quality and safety are of the utmost importance to us and we place great emphasis on quality control, following rigorous standards in order to avoid any imperfections.

"We are sorry to hear about this customer's experience, and are currently working with Just Eat to liaise with this customer to help find a resolution."
