Paper and plastic found in McDonald's scrambled eggs and burger
« on: February 09, 2019, 01:49:15 pm »
SINGAPORE - Two customers of fast-food chain McDonald's had unpleasant surprises this week when they found stray objects in their food orders.

On Friday morning (Feb 8), Facebook user Espen Tian Bao ordered a Breakfast Deluxe meal from its online service McDelivery. However, when he received his meal, he found a piece of paper in his scrambled eggs.

His receipt showed that the order was fulfilled by the McDonald's branch at Safra Punggol.

In a Facebook post on McDonald's page on Friday, Mr Espen said that the outlet told him over the phone that the paper he found was a paper liner which the scrambled eggs are put on.

He orders breakfast from McDonald's once or twice a week, and his orders are normally fulfilled by the Safra Punggol or Oasis Terrace branch, Mr Espen told The Straits Times.

When he called the Safra Punggol outlet about the paper he found, it offered to replace the order, which he declined.

On Friday afternoon, McDonald's replied to Mr Espen's Facebook post, apologising for the incident and asking him to contact the company privately.

"We are concerned to hear about this because we strive to uphold the highest standards of food safety and hygiene," McDonald's added.

In a separate incident, Facebook user CK Ng Chung Keat posted a photo on McDonald's Facebook page on Wednesday showing a half-eaten fish burger and a piece of plastic.

In his post, the Facebook user said that he had bought the Filet-O-Fish at the fast-food chain's outlet at Tampines Mall on Wednesday morning.

I think diligence, industriousness, conscientiousness are traits not limited to Singaporeans.

We need the right ethos in the Singaporean psyche and in society at large.  Look at Japan's example.

Unfortunately ethos needs to inculcated from young.  And this is continually eroded by the mis-steps of the government,  first in being influenced by civil libertarians  and their LGBTQ+ cohort.  And doing away with moral education in schools.... now they have cartoon penguins promoting same sex parenting in libraries stoutly defended by LGBTQ+ lovers. 

When AWARE wanted a different direction, lesbians were up in arms to boot out the leader....

Erosion of moral values and work ethos is the slack that the government needs to tackle...
