McDonald’s grease contaminates cars in the thoroughfare

DENVER (KDVR) — Larry Hagen couldn’t wait to get his favorite combo meal at McDonald’s, but when he pulled into the drive-thru line, he got a shock.

“They washed some kind of mud off the parking lot,” Hagen said.

Desiree Eke told FOX31 that the sidewalk at the McDonald’s at Wadsworth Boulevard and Crestline Avenue was slippery.

“I actually drove the Jeep through and slipped,” Eke said.

Customers rolled down their windows and noticed an unpleasant smell.

“It was totally disgusting,” Eke said.

Eke and Hagen told FOX31 they quickly headed to local car washes to remove the debris stuck to the bottom of their cars and in the wheel wells.

“The mud fell on the garage floor, so I drove straight to the car wash,” Hagen said.

The Denver Department of Public Health and Environment told Problem Solvers that inspectors visited the property and found there had been a grease spill, but it did not affect the food in the restaurant.

The staff removed the grease immediately. A follow-up inspection will be carried out.
