Video: Live Maggots Discovered in McDonald’s Ketchup Dispenser

(ANTIMEDIA) — As if McDonald’s ingredients weren’t already bad enough, a customer at a location in Cambridge, England, recently posted a video to Twitter showing live maggots wriggling around in a ketchup dispenser.

Never going near the ketchup in @McDonalds again. For those of you who can’t tell, these are MAGGOTS,” Twitter user Isabella Ritchie wrote on October 3.

Ritchie further explained the ordeal on Twitter:

She also said she told an employee, who ignored her:

McDonald’s UK issued a reply to her original tweet with the video, asking for details so the company could investigate immediately:

Our condiment area and dispensers should be checked for cleanliness every day and we are looking into what happened here,” a spokesperson said.

McDonald’s underwent a similar ordeal last year when an employee posted images of a filthy McFlurry machine at a U.S. location, drawing disgust from the Twittersphere. Last year in the U.K., multiple fast food chains, including McDonald’s locations, were found to have ice contaminated with fecal matter.
