A McDonald's Sausage McMuffin burger which a customer claimed to contain a baby lizard has been sent to a laboratory for testing.

Get the full story from The Straits Times.

A customer, only known as Sandy Sand on Facebook, posted a photo of the half-eaten burger on McDonald's Singapore's Facebook page around noon on Wednesday.

Sandy said that she found a baby lizard in the burger that was purchased from the Ang Mo Kio drive-through branch.

The photo has been shared over 500 times since Friday noon.

A staff from fast food chain collected the burger sample on Wednesday night, and has sent it for a laboratory test.

Here is a statement from Kevin Lim, Senior Communications Manager, McDonald's Restaurants Pte Ltd:

Food safety is our top priority and we take all feedback relating to the quality of our food very seriously.

We contacted the customer on Wednesday and collected a sample of the product from her later that night.

We have sent the sample for laboratory analysis and expect to have the results within the next few days.

Until we have all the facts, we would not want to speculate. Thank you.
