Health authorities in Chile on Tuesday confirmed what one man has claimed for weeks: That he found a mouse tail in his McDonald's hamburger.
Back in June, the man noticed something unusual when he bit into the hamburger he bought at a McDonald's restaurant in the southern town of Temuco, about 700km south of the Chilean capital Santiago. He said it appeared to be a mouse tail, and filed a complaint with local health authorities.
"There were traces of the tail stuck between the cheese and the bread, and the tail had undergone a cooking process," Armstrong told reporters.
The restaurant was closed, and a probe revealed mouse faeces inside the restaurant - and that the tail was placed inside the hamburger on purpose.
The restaurant will remain closed until Temuco health officials determine the amount of the fine.
