Toddler Finds Used Condom In McDonald’s Lobby
McDonald’s has issuesd an apology after a 2-year-old was seen sucking on a used condom that they discovered in the restaurant.
The mother–who chose to be identified only as Wendy–said she rushed her daughter to the hospital after seeing her put the condom in her mouth and is now worried she may have contracted an STD. She also added that it could take up to two months to find out from blood tests if her daughter has any infections.
This incident reportedly happened when the mother went to the counter to order at a McDonald’s in Perth, Australia.
“I don’t know how it happened but when my husband next looks at her, she’s sucking on a black condom,” Wendy explained.”I am really angry and sickened… I haven’t slept. I have been feeling overwhelmingly guilty for taking her there in the first place.” She said the condom looked used, but she could not see any packaging for it.
After the incident, the parents went to speak to a local doctor, who told them to go back to the restaurant to get the condom for testing–But according to Wendy, the McDonald’s staff refused to give her the condom.
A McDonald’s spokesperson said that the restaurant was investigating the incident and they believed an employee did actually take the condom to the hospital.
“We are very sorry that the incident occurred, and take situations like this seriously,” they told WAtoday. “Cleanliness and safety are our top priorities and we ensure the shift manager on duty conducts what we refer to as a travel path every 30 minutes…the shift manager walk through and check all areas of the restaurant.”
