You may have recently seen the video of a woman who has kept a McDonald’s hamburger and fries in a box in her closet for more than 20 years. It’s just the latest in the kind of story that comes back up every few months from people demonstrating fast food that they kept for long periods of time only to have it in perfect condition all those years later. But now McDonald’s has made an answer to that.
In an article in the newsroom, the fast-food chain did not mention the TikTok in question by name, only initially stated that “our burgers, like most other foods, could decompose in the right environment”
“Without adequate moisture – either in the food itself or in the environment – bacteria and mold may not grow and therefore decomposition is unlikely. If the food is or becomes dry enough, mold or bacteria are unlikely to grow or decompose” , so read the post partially. “Food prepared at home that is left to dehydrate can produce similar results. Look carefully, the burgers you see are likely dried out and dehydrated and by no means” on the day of purchase. “”

They went on to say that burgers are made from only 100% USDA-approved beef (and a touch of salt and pepper!) With no preservatives or fillers. So there you have it! The next time you watch these kind of viral videos, you’ll know these aged burgers and fries may not have mold, but rest assured they are just as disgusting as if they did!
