A couple from Iowa visited their local McDonalds, and found something other than pickles in their burgers. The woman, who was pregnant, bit down into her meal and reported that there was a leafy substance inside that tasted, and smelled, like marijuana.
They alerted local authorities and Police Lt. Jason Bell said that the substance, “appears to be consistent with marijuana.” The couple saved the burgers and handed them over to the police for testing. The process may take up to two months to find the results.
They have not filed any charges against the fast food chain but they do say that they now, “have a hard time trusting food when they go out.”
This is just the latest in a string of marijuana related fast food claims. Last year a 4-year-old child found a marijuana pipe in her Kid’s Meal at Burger King, a Wendy’s customer found half of a smoked joint in their cheeseburger and another McDonalds employee had established a system for selling heroin through his job at the Drive-Thru window disguised as Happy Meals.
