McDonald’s dirty mop: Disgusting image of dirty mop drying near fries at Booval store goes viral

An Australian McDonald’s worker’s disgusting act has gone viral after he was caught on camera drying a mop under a French fry warmer.

A staff member at the fast food chain’s Booval outlet, 30 kilometers southwest of Brisbane, was filmed holding a detachable microfiber mop under a heat lamp directly above some French fries that were ready to be served to a customer.

Daily Mail Australia reports that management spoke to the staff member; however, no further action has been taken.

The incident was first posted on the Subtle Bogan Hints Facebook page and quickly gained traction before going viral.

As usual in a situation like this, Australians were quick to see the brighter side of the story.

“So that’s where the flavor comes from…” said one.

Another said, “I bet the mop head is hotter than French fries.”

“Old McMop is back! It should be for a limited time only – come in while they’re hot,” said another.

While others didn’t see the funny side.
