New York, Oct 12 (THAINDIAN NEWS) A Manhattan woman claims that a McDonald Happy Meal she kept on a shelf in her home showed no sign of decomposing even after six months.

54-year-old Sally Davies carried out the project, which was named “The Happy Day Meal Project”.

It involved photographing the kids’ meal every day for the six months that the project lasted. After the period, an obviously shocked Sally remarked that the only difference has taken place over the period was the meal becoming hard. Other than that, Sally who is an artist claims that the food sat on the shelf intact.

The findings of Sally’s research raises some genuine concerns about the food. Considering that the food was exposed to air throughout the period, it raises issue about the health implications of its consumption.

When officials of McDonald’s were confronted with the findings of Sally’s experiment, the spokeswoman of the company, Danya Proud categorically denied that the meal is not bridgeable. She called the experiment “outlandish claim” which she claims is “completely false”.

This is not the first time that the safety of fast food has been questioned. An older woman in Denver, Joan Bruso carried out a similar experiment on a Happy Day Meal. The meal failed to decompose in one year.
