Muslim man ‘devastated’ after McDonald’s served pork sausage breakfast muffin in error.

Greedy Fida Hussain, 49, is calling for compensation after the McDonald’s drive-thru in Small Heath, Birmingham, mixed up order and gave him a pork sausage in error.

A practising Muslim was left ‘devastated’ after McDonald’s served him a pork sausage breakfast muffin in error.

Fida Hussain, 49, had avoided eating pork his entire life in line with his faith but was shocked when staff mistakenly replaced his egg and cheese McMuffin with meat.

Now, the father-of-four is demanding compensation from the fast-food chain.

Mr Hussain, from Birmingham, buys breakfast from the drive-thru at McDonald’s in Small Heath ‘every other morning’, comprising of a savoury muffin, hash brown and a coffee, Birmingham Live reports.

He said: “I trusted them. I was watching Judge Judy and bit into the McMuffin and knew instantly when I tasted it that it was meat.

“The taste was horrible, I knew straightaway and spat it out. It’s just completely wrong. It’s a sensitive subject, it could happen to anyone, vegan or if a person is on a particular diet.”

The former self-employed courier claims he returned immediately to the eatery on December 17 and spoke to both a female and male manager who advised him to complain online via details on the reverse of his receipt.

He said a member of staff asked if the incident could not be publicised: “The woman tried to tell me ‘can we keep it quiet and deal with it in store’ but obviously I was not happy at all.”

The father-of-four added: “I am a practicing Muslim with a nice, long beard and proud of it so they knew. I’ve kept myself away from it (pork) all my life.

” McDonald’s  is a big name, it’s a huge retailer. They shouldn’t make mistakes like this.”

He says he was given a replacement muffin and contacted the company’s head office which, he alleges, has since emailed him to say the matter is resolved as he accepted a replacement meal.

McDonald’s refute this and said it is still working to resolve the complaint.

Although the chain has offered Mr Hussain meal vouchers, he is not happy with the outcome.

He said: “I would like an apology and financial compensation. I’m devastated. It’s put me off McDonald’s and I’m mortified.”

People on social media hit out at Mr Hussain, calling him a scam artist.

why isn’t an apology enough why does money have to be involved? I’m a vegan, and I’ve been served meat so many times, sometimes an apology and a genuine mistake is accepted.

If you seek financial gain for something that genuinely offends you, it didn’t obviously offend you.

Oh grow up! I’ve been served fish when I’ve asked for a vegetarian many times, but you don’t see me crying to the press or demanding compensation. Grow a pair and get over yourself. And that beard is not long!

Devastated? I lost my husband this year that’s devastating not biting into something that you can clearly see wasn’t what he ordered. Get with the real world.

People need to watch what they are doing – this was a mistake by the servers, however, the man really should look at this food before snarfing it.  Amazing that if it was so repulsive to him, how he seems to have managed to eat half of it.

 

A spokeswoman for McDonald’s said: “We have a number of measures in place to avoid inaccurate orders and would like to apologise to the customer that we did not meet these standards on this occasion.

“We recognise it is unacceptable to serve meat when a vegetarian product has been ordered. As soon as it was brought to the attention of the restaurant, the customer was apologised to and offered a replacement order.

“We understand the customer is currently in contact with our Customer Services Team to help find a resolution.”
