McDonald’s Food Doesn’t Decay?
Our intrigue regarding the eternal shelf life of a McDonald’s hamburger began after reading of New York photographer Sally Davies’ exploits involving a Happy Meal Project: Davies purchased a Happy Meal, and perched the McDonald’s hamburger and french fries on a table. As an experiment, she photographed the meal every few days to measure the rate of spoilage. Her photographs revealed that after 145 days, the burger and fries appeared as fresh as the day they were purchased from McDonald’s nearly 5 months ago.

Our interest was really peaked when we discovered that several other concerned consumers had conducted similar McDonald’s burger experiments. In these experiments, none of the McDonald’s hamburgers decomposed after extended periods of time raging from 1 year to over a decade. Nutrition consultant Karen Hanrahan kept a McDonald’s hamburger for, get this, 12 years. She purchased the McDonald’s hamburger in 1996 and posted her claim on her website in 2008.
Author and obesity activist Julia Havey stored a McDonald’s cheeseburger and fries for 4 years, and Joann Bruso, a 62-year-old grandmother, held on to a McDonald’s Happy Meal for a whole year. All of these events were either videotaped or photographed. To illustrate what real food looks like when it spoils, Julia Havey’s video visually compares pristine looking four-year old McDonald’s french fries with a regular decomposed potato.

Then there’s Leo Foley’s Bionic Burger video. Foley has allegedly been saving McDonald’s hamburgers, cheeseburgers, and Big Macs from McDonald’s for over 19 years, and “they look EXACTLY the same!” says Foley. “These hamburgers are not food substances (the way we normally think of food), says Foley, “they are chemical concoctions that contain the look, taste, and smell of food but don’t be fooled. There is nothing ‘food-like’ about these substances at all.”....see link for rest.

You need a high moisture content to trigger mold

I had a homemade burger that did the same., It dried up before it got moldy,

Debunked already OP

It all depends on moisture.

It's not the moisture content. Years ago bread products would get moldy within a few days of baking. I never see mold anymore even though I still look for it. A loaf of bread will go a week and a half, two weeks where they could get moldy in three to five days. I don't trust some of this chicken either, it tastes good but it's different in texture, etc.

i have a McDonalds cheeseburger in its wrapper on top of the fridge, it like 4 years old now, its rock hard but thats it. i bet it could be eaten.


you can put a tub of margerine out. it will NEVER go rancid or decay in any way. the only bugs that will be into it are ones that get stuck in it and die. no maggots.

I volunteered to help judge an elementary school science fair some years ago. For one of the projects a girl left a slice of Wonder Bread[tm] out in the open for a month to see how much mold it would grow. It didn't grow any.

I haven't touched Wonder Bread since.

Precisely why I feed my family butter. I'm sure it's made from the milk of hormone and antibiotic-laden genetically engineered cows, but at least it's actually food.

True. I had a bad ant problem this year and they got into everything that wasn't sealed in tupperware - except cereal. They left my raisin bran and corn flakes alone.

You sure she didn't just start her project the night before. LOL!

I've had milk that went 2 months past the expiration date and was still "good." I poured it out anyway and really only kept it as long as I did just to see how long it would last. After 2 months past, I wanted it out of my way. I have not bought that brand of milk since.

I have had parkay margarine go bad by being left out just overnight. It was probably ok to cook with, but had a really rancid chemical taste to it. I tossed it. Now make my own butter.

I have personally seen a 1-Year old BigMac that did not decay. It was simply left it it's box as an experiment by a friend of mine. Everything shrunk to probably 50% of it's original size but that was it. Oh, and it was simply left in a drawer.

I found a McDonald's french fry under my son's booster seat from a road trip 6 months ago (I normally don't let them eat greasy things in the car, so it had to have been from that long ago). It was petrified but completely normal-looking. That just ain't right.

Did you know you can also squish a loaf of Wonder Bread and it pops right back to its original size? cool2 I squished a loaf one time and left it sit and came back and thought it was a new loaf... but no, it was the same loaf that had popped up to its original exact dimensions.

My friend owns a McD's and he takes the patties out of all the old unsold burgers, lets them dry up, then puts them in a wood chipper to use as bark for his yard.

He's been doing that for years. People think its rubber and he often gets compliments.

He says McD's sausage is better because the fat in it after it hardens reflects light and brings the yard to life during sunny days.

He also used burger patties (after dried out) as wheels for his sons wagon.

I took my child there once and she wont touch it yuck and still wont touch it( she was 3). I just go in to the fruit and veg and get her banana. Now I look at those mums giving their kids coke and an unhappy meal at age 1 ...
cheap lunch down at the shops ay.. its like the schools that want their kids to be healthy yet a nice sandwich at the tuckshop is 3 time the price of a pie or any other junkfood.
It does not rot due to all the cemicals in it..
