As reported by Yahoo, a McDonald's customer bit into her hash brown only to discover that its contents were both mysterious and gross in equal measure.

Though this incident might be arguable safer than biting into a metal rod in a burger, the customer has been left puzzled and disgusted.

McDonald's customer served a mysterious hash brown

Tori Dent and her friend were on a 6-hour drive from New South Wales to Queensland. Early in the morning, they stopped for breakfast at a McDonald's restaurant along the Mid-North Coast.

They picked up the food from the drive-thru. Tori handed her friend her food, and took a bite off the hash brown that she ordered for herself. What followed was a disgusting ordeal.

Tori recounts the incident to Yahoo,

I was in the passenger seat so I ordered online with the MyMaccas app for drive-thru pick up in Taree. I handed my friend her food while she drove and by the time I had my first bite we were back on the highway.

She discovered there was something seriously wrong with her food which was completely 'black and mushy' inside. She says,

When I took my bite I noticed it was black. It was just black and mushy looking and looked disgusting.
Without chewing, I spate out my bite. My friend’s hash brown looked normal and she offered me half of hers, but I was off it and said no.

She posted a photo of the hash brown with completely blackened filling inside on Facebook. Needless to say, people were grossed out as well, with some commenters asking if its 'deep-fried Oreo' or just 'burnt' inside.

McDonald's Australia have responded to the incident saying they are investigating the matter.
