A McDonald's customer claims he was left shocked and disgusted after finding live flies in his Big Mac burger.
36-year-old Craig Till, from Pontefract in West Yorkshire, said he received the gruesome grub at the McDonald's branch on Castleford's Colorado Way last Thursday.
The dad-of-one has now vowed never to set foot in the restaurant again, reports Yorkshire Live.
Craig, who often takes his eight-year-old to McDonald's for a treat, said his son was left upset as they "won't be returning again".
He discovered the flies that were "still alive" after biting into the burger.
He "immediately spat it out".
Craig said: "I went to McDonald's drive thru as I fancied a Double Big Mac meal, ordered one with my card, got home opened the box and saw around three or four moving flies on the burger.
"It has definitely put me off returning, my son loves McDonald's so now he's upset because we won't be having it again due to this, it made me feel sick and disgusted.
The horrified customer took pictures of the insect infested feast and posted to Facebook in a bid to "make people in the local area aware".
The post read: "Been to McDonald's near Xscape and got a burger also some flies absolutely disgusting!!!!"
Craig complained to the branch who offered him another burger.
When he refused he was offered a refund, however he decided it would not be beneficial for him to travel back to the restaurant.
He said: "They offered me another burger but I said 'no'. Then they offered a refund but it would cost me the amount I paid for my meal in diesel to go back."
Craig has also contacted trading standards over the incident.
A spokesperson for McDonald's has said: "Food safety and quality is of the utmost importance to us. We place great emphasis on quality control and follow rigorous standards in order to avoid any imperfections.
"As soon as this was brought to our attention, the customer was offered a full refund and a replacement meal.
"We asked the customer to return the burger so that we could investigate further but we have not heard back."
