According to the claim of LinkBoyJT on his Reddit post on Wednesday, May 16, 2012, the insect was attached to the McDonald’s potato cake that he was eating but did not realize it at first.

“I swear, I nearly dropped the thing when I saw what it was. I put it back in the bag so I could show my parents and then took a picture of it on my kitchen counter.” LinkBoyJT wrote on his post, noting that he first thought it was purple lettuce until he turned the light on.

“It was on the hash brown. It definitely looked like it was cooked with it. Maybe it was from their truck and froze with the hash brown?” LinkBoyJT added, emphasizing that he was not able to finish his food and was not exactly hungry afterward.

Apparently, one of his commenters said LinkBoyJT killed the insect and put it on top of the food and later blamed McDonald’s but LinkBoyJT insisted that it was really stuck to my hash brown while he was eating the other end.

“I took the thing and showed it to the manager and she marked my receipt so I could get the same meal for free the next time I come in for breakfast. She didn’t really seem all that concerned.” LinkBoyJT explained further.

Nevertheless, LinkBoyJT, who noted that he was driving home at around 5:45 a.m. when he made the discovery, did not mention the branch of McDonald’s where he bought the food; and his claim has not been confirmed by the fast food company or verified independently.
