Unhappy Meal: A customer's McDonald's chicken and bacon wrap came with a side of spider

·2 min read

A woman in England said she will never eat at McDonald's again after she bit into "something hard" while eating food from the fast-food chain, only to realize that she had bitten a huge spider.

Katie Moss, 21, a care assistant from Winsford in west England, said she ordered a chicken and bacon wrap from McDonald's through the app Just Eat, an online food ordering company based in the United Kingdom, on Jan. 19.

Moss said she was nearly done eating the wrap when she bit into "something hard."

"At first I thought it was the end of a tomato, so I pulled it out, and at first I thought it was just part of the chicken, but when I looked closer, I thought it was a crab, then I realized it was a spider," Moss told The Mirror. "I spat the rest out, but I had bitten into it. I was disgusted. I felt like throwing up. It was all curled up."

Moss said the spider was a kind she had never seen before and suspected it wasn't native to the U.K. She said it left an odd taste in her mouth, and she's paranoid about eating anything else.

After the incident, Moss said she called the McDonald's where she got the food to report what happened.

"Food safety is of the utmost importance to us. We place great emphasis on quality control, following rigorous standards to avoid any imperfections, so we are sorry to hear of this customer's experience," McDonald's said in a statement. "As soon as this was brought to the attention of the restaurant, the customer was apologized to and offered both a refund and replacement meal. The customer has also returned the item in question which will enable us to investigate further."

USA TODAY was unable to reach McDonald's about the incident.

Moss said neither McDonald's nor Just Eat could say how the spider got into the wrap.

"A voucher isn't much good to me. I want proper compensation," Moss said.
