A 27-year-old woman was horrified to find a green worm lurking in her McDonald’s meal.

Disha Vasyani was just about to tuck in to her Chicken Legend with spicy mayo when she noticed the unwanted creature lurking in the lettuce.

She had just taken a shot of insulin for her diabetes and the sudden drop of blood sugar left her feeling weary as she complained to staff.

The supply and planning consultant from east London said she couldn’t stomach any solid food afterwards and doesn’t think she’ll be visiting the fast food chain any time soon.

After hitting the shops around London’s busy Oxford Street on August 27, Disha decided to take a break at a McDonald’s opposite Tottenham Court Road station.

She says she was ‘disgusted’ to find an unexpected addition to her meal and poked it around to check it was definitely a creepy crawlie.

Recalling her horrifying discovery, Disha told ‘I took some pictures and just to be sure I showed it to somebody who was sitting beside me who was also disgusted by it.’

By this point she had already injected her insulin, which she has to do before every meal.

‘By that time I was too low on energy so I really couldn’t discuss much in detail. I had to eat something.’

She says one worker didn’t seem to fussed about the discovery and acted like it was ‘normal’, but another member of staff did offer a replacement meal, which Disha turned down.

‘After seeing the worm, I didn’t really feel like eating so I just had juice for lunch,’ she added.

A spokesperson for McDonald’s said: ‘Food safety is of the utmost importance to us. We place great emphasis on quality control and are sorry to hear we fell short on this occasion.

‘When this was brought to the attention of the restaurant manager, they apologised to the customer and offered a replacement meal.

‘This was declined, however the customer did accept a full refund.

‘Should the customer have any further queries, we recommend they contact our Customer Services Team, who have tried to reach out a few times, to help find a resolution.’
