McDonald’s has apologised after customers reported finding meat in vegetarian meals across the UK.
The fast-food chain launched its spicy veggie wrap earlier this month.
It’s supposed to contain red pesto, a vegetarian goujon, relish, tomato, lettuce and red onion, but Twitter users have been posting photos of the wraps appearing to contain chicken nuggets.
According to numerous reports on Twitter, this has been happening across the UK since the wrap launched.
@McDonalds I ordered a spicy veggie wrap from one of your stores and thanks to the sheer incompetency of some of your staff I’ve been given chicken. I’ve been veggie my whole life and this has literally put me in tears as I ingested part of this wrap thinking it was veggie. pic.twitter.com/fCZZ9xnd8L
