Woman claims McDonald's Happy Meal bought in 2010 hasn't spoiled

FOX19 -

An Alaskan woman claims that a McDonald's Happy Meal that she bought over six years ago still shows no signs of being rotted, molded or decomposed.

In a Facebook post, Jennifer Lovdahl says she bought the Happy Meal on January 8, 2010 as part of an experiment to show her patients how they should choose "real food."

Lovdahl said the Happy Meal food only smelled of cardboard. She claims the cardboard box may rot before the food does.

In her picture, the french fries and chicken nuggets do appear to be intact.

On McDonald's website's FAQs section, they've addressed the issue of its food not rotting, explaining:

"Food needs moisture in the air for mold to form. Without it, food will simply dry out – sort of like bread left out on a counter overnight to make croutons for stuffing.

You might have seen experiments which seem to show no decomposition in our food. Most likely, this is because the food has dehydrated before any visible deterioration could occur."

Lovdahl's post has been shared over 286,000 times.
