A horrified customer has vowed never to eat at a Hull McDonald’s again after seeing “seven rats” getting in and out of a rubbish bin at the Holderness Road branch.

A chilling photo taken at the scene shows at least five rodents scrambling around a trash can in the McDonald’s parking lot. The incident is said to have occurred on Wednesday evening (March 12) around 6 p.m.

The customer also claims that a member of staff came shortly after and changed the rat-infested trash can without wearing PPE.

On Facebook, a member of the public posted: “Feel free to share before anyone gets seriously ill!!! Rat for tea anyone?! 7 rats to be exact!! Are you talking about pest control?!

“Having seen this I will NOT be using McDonald’s on Holderness Road again. A member of staff went and changed the bin bag without PPE and returned to the restaurant.”

Speaking to Hull Live, the unnamed customer said: “I’m aware where there are fast food restaurants and where there is food waste there will be bugs, but that’s different. That’s not good pest control if you can see it in broad daylight.”

Bug problems have plagued several McDonald’s restaurants in recent months, both in Hull and further afield. In January, a woman vowed never to use the chain again after filming a rat scurrying across a table at a McDonald’s in Tilbury.

Closer to home, in November, a man counted eight rats scurrying under cars at the McDonald’s drive-through in Willerby. He likened the troubling sight to “a scene in Ratatouille” in which rodents “walk under cars” and “jump over rat traps.”

A McDonald’s spokesman said: “We take cleanliness and hygiene very seriously. Pest control experts recently conducted a routine inspection of the site and confirmed that there was no evidence of pest-related activity at the restaurant.

“We are working with landlords to proactively manage potential challenges arising from the nearby railway area. The restaurant itself is not affected.”
