The alleged unwelcome discovery was made in Japan after a 58-year-old man bit into his sausage egg McMuffin.

The fast-food company told local media they would investigate to find out where in the supply chain the white pieces entered the patty and the customer was given a refund.

The enquiry could stretch all the way back to the US, where meat in the McMuffin was reportedly processed.

The fragments were sent away for analysis and a McDonald’s spokesperson told The Sun Online food quality and safety was a top priority for the company.

They said: “This is an isolated matter and the local team will continue to liaise directly with the customer as the investigation is carried out.”

After images of the teeth-like objects were posted online some social media users commented on how difficult the investigation would be.

One comment read: “They’ll have to check the dental records of everyone on the processing line.”

Another added: “Check the DNA! Then we’ll know for sure where it came from.”

Claims of disturbing discoveries are not unheard of in fast food.

In April a teen claimed to be have been left disgusted after biting into his McDonald’s burger to find a huge dead bug.

Last month an Australian man claimed to have found hair and a safety pin sticking out of his KFC chicken.

And earlier in the year a couple accused Burger King of serving them food crawling with maggots – although managers insisted their burger had been thoroughly cooked on the grill.
