McDonald's Canada is investigating after a Fredericton man claimed he found a mouse in the bottom of his cup of coffee recently.
A photo showing what appears to be a mouse at the bottom of a used coffee cup was posted to a Fredericton community Facebook page earlier this week.
In a statement, McDonald's Canada said it's investigating, but neither the local health authority nor an inspection by a pest control company turned up any evidence of mice in the restaurant.
"Until such time as we are able to collect all the necessary facts and laboratory results to conclude a full review, it would be inappropriate for us to comment further. Similarly, we would also caution against jumping to conclusions until more details are available," the statement says.
The claim of the McMouse was hotly debated on the Facebook page, with some calling the find gross while others questioned the validity of the story.
