Australian musician Anton Vallely reportedly recieved an uncooked burger from McDonald’s, and he says it left him “wrecked.”

McDonald’s has forged their entire brand around affordable food, low prices, and a plethora of novelty items.

Their grill-fried, grease-dipped food has put smiles on millions of customers over the years.

However, one recent late-night excursion turned sour for one Aussie man, who ate a burger and got more than he bargained for.

“I was sick as soon as I realised and now my throat feels weird and I’ve been sweating,” Vallely told a news outlet. Not only did his throat feel off but he immediately began vomiting.

Despite vomiting and sweating, Vallelly didn’t go to the doctor. “I don’t think it’s that bad. I’m not dying or anything, but I just thought it was worth saying something.”

A McDonald’s spokesperson said their investigation resulted in Vallely being issued a “full refund and replacement meal.” The statement continued: “We treat complaints of this nature very seriously and will continue to work with the restaurant on the necessary actions.”
