A man has vowed to go vegan after claiming that he found a nipple in his McDonald’s bacon sandwich.
Simon Robinson bought the treat before walking back to his car and unwrapping the sandwich.
Before he started eating, he quickly checked to see how many slices of bacon he had inside - only to find what he thinks is a pig’s nipple on one of the rashers.
The 27-year-old drove back home to show his mum what he had found inside before taking pictures and complaining to the fast food chain’s head office.

‘My mum was disgusted too’
Simon, from Prudhoe, Gateshead said: "To open it up and to find that was revolting. It has put me off meat entirely. So much so I’m considering going vegan now.
"It’s a fairly regular treat getting a bacon roll from McDonald’s.
"I always open up and check what’s inside because I have OCD. This time it seems it was entirely justified.
"I know you can find that on pork belly but I didn’t ask for a pork belly roll. I asked for a bacon sandwich. I dare not eat it but I did eat the rest of the roll.
"I contacted McDonald’s who told me I had to send it to them so they can send it off to a lab.
"If I did that they could just do away with it. I can’t believe it. When I showed my mum she was disgusted too."
McDonald’s has been contacted for comment.
