Man stunned after finding ‘fossilised’ McDonald’s burger left in car for years

A man from Australia claims he has been put off Maccies for life after finding a 'fossilised' cheeseburger in the back of a car.
29-year-old Cameron Holland, from Brisbane, Queensland, found the 'rock-hard' McDonald's burger next to the spare wheel in the back of a 12-year-old Toyota Camry at work and shared a video of his stomach-churning find on TikTok.
In the clip, which has more than three-million views and 143,000 likes, Cameron picks up the burger, which appears to be in 'pristine' condition. He knocks the burger against the side of a car and it remains intact.
He then takes a hammer to it and smashes through the meat and bun.
"We found this in a car. Rock hard. Look at this sh*t. Literally, what the f**k?," he said.
The Aussie picks up some of the smashed burger and it crumbles in his hand 'like a biscuit.'
The video's caption reads: "Found this cheese burger in a spare wheel well at work, has to be at least 1-3 years old.
"The burger is rock hard without one bit of mould on it WTF it wasn't even eaten by ants."
Cameron has since spoken to FEMAIL about the ordeal. "I was instantly disgusted and I will never be eating McDonald's again. I was shocked by how fresh the burger looked — yet it was rock hard," he said.
He added that, despite the snack's 'pristine' condition and lack of odour, no-one in the workshop dared to 'lick it' or 'sniff it.'
Fellow TikTokers who stumbled across Cameron's video were equally baffled by the find.
One person wrote: "I think the craziest part is that bugs won't eat it.."
A second joked: "That's a mcfossil."
One person claimed they'd seen a fossilised McDonald's burger before: "Once in high school my science teacher was trying to show us how bad McDonalds was.
"So we had a pet classroom burger. 1yr, no mould."
Another said: "There was a person who had them over 10+ years. Looked exactly the same."
McDonald's didn't comment on how the long the burger could have been left in the car for or how long it could have looked in such good condition for.
However, a spokesperson for the fast food giant told Daily Mail Australia that its burgers are best 'consumed upon purchase or delivery to ensure quality and freshness'.
LADbible has reached out to McDonald's for further comment.
