Farmer tries to sell 6-year-old McDonald’s cheeseburger, fries

Published:

A farmer from Ontario, Canada is astounded eBay took down his recent post asking $29.99 for a 6-year-old McDonald’s cheeseburger and side of fries.

Dave Alexander, who lives on a farm in Staffa, was told by eBay that the listing needed to be taken down because the food did not have an expiration date. But Alexander said he never intended to sell the food for consumption.

According to CBC Radio, the reason Alexander kept the McDonald’s meal his daughter purchased on June 7, 2012 was to see if the claim that fast food lasts forever was an urban legend.

“The fries are stunningly good looking. The fries look like they were purchased this morning,” he told CBC Radio. “The burger itself has darkened a little bit. The bun is about as hard as a hockey puck, but it looks just like it’s brand new cosmetically.”

Alexander is in the process of trying to downsize his home and decided to sell the Mickey D’s meal on eBay. Before being taken down, the bidding had reached $82.
