McDonald’s: That’s Not A Lizard In Your Sandwich, It’s A Chicken Vein

A McDonald's customer in Singapore believed that the long, dangling whitish thing in this sausage sandwich was a baby lizard.

A McDonald’s customer in Singapore believed that the long, dangling whitish thing in this sausage sandwich was a baby lizard.

A McDonald’s customer in Singapore recently caused quite a stir, alleging that their Sausage McMuffin came with a free baby lizard inside. The fast food chain says it has had the mystery meat tested and is trying to assure everyone that this is not lizard meat, but just an ugly chicken vein.

“The sample collected is 100% chicken,” a rep for the company said in a statement. “The vein is white in colour because of the Halal slaughtering process where blood had to be drained.”

The chicken meat used in these sausage patties comes from Malaysia. The company rep says that McDonald’s could find no other instances of chicken veins or other quality issues in the batch of meat related to the patty in question.

McDonald’s says it is providing the lab reports to relevant authorities in Singapore.
