What Happens to The Hygiene In Singapore MacDonalds?

Recently, my friend sent me a shocking, if not life threatening email about her "interesting findings" of the food she bought from MacDonald in Singapore.

When I read her email, I find it very appalling. And rather listening to me complain, why not you hear about it from her yourself:


I went to the outlet at Compasspoint on 3 Sep 08 at about 10pm. I ordered 2 Double Cheeseburger and a 9 Pcs Chicken Nuggets. After which I asked for Curry Sauce and Chilli Sauce to take away.

When i got home, which was a short 2 mins ride, TO MY HORROR, when i opened the packet of curry sauce, i was greeted with a "smell" and there were many tiny maggots crawling inside with a portion of the curry sauce which have turned black and harden and possibly rotting.

I wrote in to feedback to Macdonalds the same night, and this morning (4 Sep) i had a call from a Business Manager apologising for this encounter, the first thing she asked was if i had kept the packet of curry sauce! The maggots were crawling out, obviously i had it disposed as soon as i took the photos, and in our conversation she also mentioned that this is not isolated to the outlet at Compasspoint! It was island wide as it could be a supplier problem. I think it is ridiculous! She also told me there were a few complaints already.

Shouldn't they stop giving out curry sauce while pending investigation? It was "fortunate" for me that the rotting and maggots were visible. For those packets which have not turned black may have maggots swimming in the sauce which is not known to the consumer. I asked her if they do check the expiry date of the sauces, she mentioned that the turnover for curry sauce is very high thus unlikely it would hit past the expiry date. Then my question is, if it is not even past its expiry date and it is rotting with maggots, what's going on???

This just serves as a warning to fellow Macdonalds consumers to watch out before dipping your food into curry sauce, you may not know what is swimming and growing in there...


By the way, the email was not something that was circulated around where even the sender is unknown. It was a real "tragedy" experience by my friend.

Along with the email came some pictures. Just click on the pictures of enlarge them.

Disgusting, isn't it?

And just as I was wondering what had happened to Singapore hygiene, there was another concerning news about rats falling from the ceilings of the MacDonald in Tampines. How coincidence!!

You can get the full story here at

Now, will there be any "more interesting" events to come from our MacDonald here... Erm...

And if there are any of such events, please share it with me. (I'm running out of what to blog here. Lolx... just joking. There are always one thousand and one thing to blog about!)

Just comment here or send it to support[at] if you have any. Remember to replace the [at] with "@" without the quotes. To prevent spams!

I Just Hate Spam Mails!
