'Is that mould?' McDonald's customer shares odd contents of Quarter Pounder burger

·2-min read

A McDonald's customer was less than impressed by the amount of salt and pepper on their burger, and the photos led some to believe it was something else entirely.

The woman shared two pictures of her Quarter Pounder which she bought from a McDonald's in southwest Sydney.

"Can I have a quarter pounder with my salt and pepper?" she questioned.

It appears she had pulled apart her burger to find excess salt and pepper sprinkled all over her cheese and beef.

A McDonald's customer received a little bit more salt and pepper than one would hope for on their burger.

In the comments, she jokingly offered to give away her burger to someone if they liked excess "salt and pepper" and said it was as though she apparently had "ordered the whole ocean on my burger".

However, one person completely missed the caption and thought the salt and pepper was something else entirely.

"Is that mould?" they asked.

Another person said the excessive condiments was something they hadn't seen before.

What was most astounding is that the woman who ordered the burger said in the comments they didn't want salt and pepper on their burgers in the first place.

Quite a few people in the comments said the same thing had happened to them at McDonald's restaurants in the area.

In a statement, McDonald's said they appreciated the feedback from the customer.

"We strive to deliver consistently great tasting food and a great experience for our customers," the spokesperson said.

"We welcome all feedback – the good and not so good - so we can make the experience better for our customers next time.

"Customers can provide feedback in our restaurants or reach out via mcfeedback@au.mcd.com and we will be in touch to resolve."
