It wasn’t a cheeseburger in paradise for two men who reportedly found glass in their food at a Rome McDonalds.

According to a Floyd County police report, Herbert Perkison of Emerson bit into his quarter pounder on June 29th, and, instead the juicy flavor of meat and cheese, he was met with a mouthful of glass. As he had already eaten over half of his hamburger, EMS carted him to Floyd Medical Center for X-Rays to verify he had not consumed anymore glass.

Perkison and his friend were dining at the McDonalds on Martha Berry Hwy when the incident occurred. In their investigation, the responding officer spoke with the manager, who claimed the burgers were made fresh. Checking the patties from the same box, the manager did find more glass in the uncooked meat.

The box of patties was removed and a ‘do not use’ sign was placed on top of them.
