Police are investigating after two people claimed they found pills in the food they bought from a west Auckland McDonalds.

The pair say they went to Te Atatu McDonald's on Wednesday night and ordered sundaes. However they claim to have found a nasty surprise in their ice creams.

"We ate them at home, and we all found traces and whole pills of perscription medicine. My sister injested one. I found one in my mouth and spat it out [sic]," one says on social media.

"The police are invovled. We got off so lucky. Had a child injested it. There would be more of an issue. I dont know who would do such a thing but its disgusting [sic]!!"

Police confirmed to Newshub they are looking into the incident.

"Police have received a complaint relating to an incident where two people claimed that there were pills in their ice-creams that were purchased from a fast food restaurant in West Auckland yesterday evening," Waitakere Police Detective Senior Sergeant Roger Small told Newshub.

"The individuals took themselves to hospital to be assessed. We are looking into the incident and making enquiries to establish the nature of the pills."
