Well isn’t this interesting. Now, we’ll see if this investigation ends up proving this accusation, but reports state that a six-year-old girl in the U.K. was enjoying her Chicken McNugget Happy Meal when she began to choke.  “I had to put my finger in her mouth to make her sick and it came up all speckled with blue,” said the child’s mother, Laura Arber. “It was a mask, it was absolutely baked into it, it had gone like chewing gum,” Arber added. “It was disgusting… If I hadn’t been in the room I just don’t know what could have happened.”

McDonald’s UK released a statement saying that they were investigating the matter and “have taken action to ensure any product from this batch is removed from restaurants,” the company said. “We would like to offer a full apology to the customer in question and understand they are currently in conversation with our customer services team.”
