We know there’s better coffee out there, but sometimes that black coffee from McDonald’s is the cheapest, most convenient option. Maybe you should spring for the extra cash of a Starbucks frappucino next time, if you wish to avoid the fate of Ron Morais.
Morais of New Brunswick, Canada got an unwelcome surprise in his morning McDonald’s coffee when he opened the lid to discover the carcass of a dead mouse in his cup. At that point, he had been sipping the drink for some time, and was only removing the lid from his plastic takeout cup to slurp up the last of the coffee.
“I always take the lid off to get my last sip of coffee. And when I took the lid off, there was a little bit of a surprise in my coffee cup. It was a dead mouse,” Morais told CBC News.
But wait, it gets worse! Morais went on to say that, alongside the mouse, the cup contained “a few little, shall we say, presents” at the bottom of it.
Upon discovering his furry, friendly corpse, Morais showed it to his similarly disgusted coworkers.
The communications manager for the Eastern region of McDonald’s coffee issued a statement in response emphasizing the company’s concern for food safety and cleanliness.
