I'm wondering with the "live worm" though. Did that mean the alleged worm might have originated somewhere else and not from the kitchen since burgers are cooked, aren't they?

Let's hope that those details will come out after McDo's probe, as indicated in its official statement.

For me, that worm came from the lettuce which was locally purchased. Basically, the "back sink" service crew is the one who do the cleaning and chopping of the lettuce with at least 1/16 tsp chlorine powder mixed in a gallon of water with ice to eliminate worms or any pests. Maybe it was done improperly.
