New Jersey mom claims her McDonald’s order included fecal matter: lawsuit

Those aren’t hash browns.

A South Jersey mother is suing her local Golden Arches for what she claims was fecal matter on her daughter’s burger wrapper. According to the Daily Journal, Amanda Bordois says she and her daughter were eating French fries out of a McDonald’s bag on Jan. 13. When the girl reached into the bag to grab a burger, according to the lawsuit filed last week, Bordois’ daughter “noticed a brown substance all over the wrapper of the burger and on (her) right hand.”

That matter was accompanied by a “horrible” stench, the lawsuit alleges. Brodois said that after unsuccessfully being able to get anyone from the McDonald’s she’d just visited on the phone, she called law enforcement. Officer Kevin Gandy wrote in his report that when he checked out the complaint, he, too, observed “what appeared to be feces” on the wrapper.

The company that owns and operates the Millville, N.J., McDonald’s however, argues that their investigation turned up no evidence that any alleged feces came from their establishment. Gandy spoke to the McDonald’s manager who reportedly said it is “not possible” because he would have noticed poop on the gloves he wears while filling take-out orders.

The Daily Journal reports that the Cumberland County Health Department conducted a Jan. 15 inspection, where an employee was spotted putting on gloves without washing their hands — a repeat violation that was corrected on site. The McDonald’s was given a satisfactory score on its inspection.

Bordois said she saved the sullied wrapper in question, but health inspectors never came for the smoking gun. Her suit states that she and her daughter were forced to seek medical treatment and continue to experience “severe emotional distress” as well as loss of appetite and anxiety.

The plaintiffs seek compensatory and punitive damages, plus court costs.
