UPDATE: Rathdrum Man Finds Bloody Band-Aid In McDonald's Hamburger

RATHDRUM, Idaho - A McDonalds customer claims to find a bloody band aid in his cheeseburger.
 
Crystal English says her husband brought home McDonalds meals Monday night for their family and it was only after her husband took his last bite of his burger she says he discovered a bloody bandaid in it. "I was like, oh my gosh. The first thing that comes to mind is what kind of diseases can be transferred from that. You never know." Her husband declined to be interviewed by KHQ.
 
English saved the bandaid and the receipt to show health officials whom she called soon after the find. The Idaho Panhandle Health District says it is conducting an inspection of the McDonalds to get to the bottom of the incident but would not comment any further on what it calls an "Open Claim".
 
Managers of the Rathdrum McDonalds we spoke with over the phone referred our questions to a regional media contact. Through that media person the Rathdrum McDonalds owner issued this statement in full.
 
Terri Skubitz "Rest assured, we take matters regarding food safety and quality extremely seriously. I strongly caution anyone from drawing conclusions without having all the facts. We take these matters very seriously. We have taken immediate action to investigate this claim and gather the facts."
   
Idaho State Law does not require food workers to wear gloves when handling food. However it is state law that there be no bare hand contact with ready to eat foods.
