Hash browns from McDonald's is a must-have from their breakfast menu, but one Reddit user claims to have gotten more than he paid for when he found a roach cooked with his early morning treat.

Reddit user LinkBoyJT posted a disturbing photo on Wednesday of the hash brown he purchased. Inside the potato treat was a fried roach.

LinkBoyJT claims that after finishing almost half the McDonald's hash brown he spotted the roach inside the other half.

"I was eating a hash brown from McDonald's on the way home when I felt something on the bottom," LinkBoyJT wrote underneath the photo he posted. "I first thought it was purple lettuce until I turned the light on. I swear, I nearly dropped the thing when I saw what it was. It was a nasty surprise."

A "nasty surprise" is an understatement, but since Wednesday the photo has been viewed around 750,000 times, receiving well over 2,000 comments.

The photo has stirred a debate among Reddit users, as many weighed in on what exactly the foreign object in the breakfast food might be. Since LinkBoyJT was unsure of what he found inside his hash brown, some viewers suggested a cockroach instead of a moth due to wings that were "not hooked together." Other users suggested that when the hash brown was on the delivery truck, the roach became frozen to it.

Since posting the photo LinkBoyJT has informed the staff at McDonald's about his disturbing discovery.

"I took the thing and showed it to the manager and she marked my receipt so I could get the same meal for free the next time I come in for breakfast. She didn't really seem all that concerned," LinkBoyJT updated on Reddit.

The location of the McDonald's that the Reddit user reportedly found the contaminated hash brown has not been disclosed.

The fast food chain has yet to make an official statement or confirm the Reddit users claims.
