A Newcastle man who wanted to treat his wife to a MacDonald’s takeaway to celebrate their wedding anniversary says he found a dead fly in amongst his chips.
Fabrizio Bonucci says he’ll never go to McDonald's again after the shocking discovery.
Fabrizio had finished a long shift as a nurse and ordered a delivery from the McDonald's restaurant on Northumberland Street for both him and his wife on their fourth wedding anniversary.
A Just Eat driver delivered their order at around 9pm on Sunday but the 36-year-old was disgusted to find a dead fly in his box of fries – after eating half of them already.
Fabrizio and wife Moira, 35, threw their entire order of a Big Mac meal, a Chicken Legend meal, a cheeseburger and nine chicken nuggets in the bin.
He told Chronicle Live: "At first I thought it must have been part of a burnt chip, but when I got a closer look and saw it was a dead fly I was horrified.
"I couldn't believe it. It's simply disgusting.
"We couldn't eat any of it after that and it all went in the bin."
Fabrizio has sworn to never order from McDonald's again following the "horrendous" experience.
He said: "I'd been working all day and only finished at 8pm so I asked Moira if she wanted a McDonald's to avoid any of us having to cook.
"We were just staying in and watching a movie on TV.
"I'd had no dinner so I was really hungry. It is unbelievable to think this has happened, especially on our anniversary.
"For sure I will not be going to McDonald's again after this."
Fabrizio complained to Just Eat who he says apologised for the disastrous meal but did not offer him a refund for their £20 order.
In the meantime, Moira, 35, ended up cooking up some pasta for the Byker couple to ensure they didn't go hungry on their wedding anniversary.
McDonald's and Just Eat have since apologised to Fabrizio and say they are investigating the discovery.
